Essentially, the work is deeply personal. Broadchurch novelist Erin Kelly is back with her best ever novel and is a Sunday Times best-seller. Said/She Said focuses on two statements of witnesses of a lawsuit: whether they really saw what they said, and whether they tell the whole thing.
So Kelly skilfully dumps a few of herring, but the twisty one is, as one critic describes, "whiningly good. He also succeeds in questioning our beliefs and preconceptions that can affect a casualty of sex assaults without immediately piling us on the victim's side or giving us a moral-presentation.
With his novel The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, Joel Dicker has even displaced Dan Brown's inferno from the top of the chart - and is returning with this huge and richly illustrated suspense. It depicts the fictitious lives of the renowned novelist Marcus Goldman and how his 2004 novel emerged from a tragic situation in the home.
Her next album Greatest Hits is no letdown for Laura Barnett's first novel version of Us. This whole volume is scheduled over a whole days, filled with recurrences from Cass' lives that tell why she withdrew from her carreer a century ago and what caused her to come back. Anyone who knows what it is like to move to a new place and get lonesome or just feeling like an outcast will find this one.
The present is theife of Dora Fielding, a once respected London writer who adored her London before she moved to the same city with a new man and family. It is a wonderfully composed and touching tale about two lifes and their great loves.
Goddard and Emily meet in 1962, but the novel begins at the end when the older Goddard fights Alzheimer's and Emily still senses the importance of their common mystery. Conversely, the sections go through their life, from old and young in Maine, back to the education of their children, to their families and their first day together as undergraduates.
It' a loose version of the author's own experiences with her daughter's passage and sounds realistic. The Hadler' s murder? Other Hoffman Sister is a thrilling tale about two nurses, Margarete and Ingrid, in pre-war Germany. Margaret is missed on the evening before the First World war, after getting betrothed to Emil von Ketz, whose dad sells property to her ancestors. Ingrid is resolved to find out what happens to her.
A novel by award-winning Ben Fergusson appeals to Sarah Perry's The Essex Serpent family. Sarah Schmidt courageously went where no other psychothriller novelist has been before to reinvent the infamous history of the Abby and Robert Borden assassination in 1892.
Every section of the novel concentrates on a different character and her history, her interpretations of life in the same place - Amgash, Illinois - as a young Lucy.
