 SHORTLISTED FOR THE CRIME WRITERS ASSOCIATION DEBUT DAGGER AWARD

Motherland is the first in a gripping series of crime novels set in contemporary St Petersburg, featuring sharp and intriguing policewoman, Captain Natalya Ivanova.

 With plot twists galore and an array of credible suspects, this traditional village mystery series will appeal to fans of M.C. Beaton and Midsomer Murders

When Alex Duggins comes across a terrifying scene at the site of a new housing development, once again she is drawn into a case of brutal murder. 

This is my week in books. I’m trying to mix the genres up a bit. A crazy killer thriller followed by something more cozy. Give my brain a rest from the fast paced to the slowly savoring.

Happy Reading and Blogging! Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you got anything good to read this week!

  1. I’m lucky to read one every couple of months. I just picked up “Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore” by Matthew Sullivan this week. It’s not what I expected bu I read 3 chapters last night and I’m ready to read more soon. I’ll let you know if it’s awful.

      1. Excuse me. “Let me know what you think. He is a cousin by marriage!” Does this sentence refer to my comment that I have been reading Origin? If so, can I give a FRANK reply? No hard feelings?

  2. Here are my disorganised thoughts, (listed) which I was about to write in the Amazon book review pages:-
    1.In the epilogue, the word, ‘pujari’ is used to denote some of those who attended the World Religious…etc. Actually, in India, ‘swami’ is a more apt word. Pujaris are just guys who worship at temples etc on behalf of the public, visitors, etc.
    2.Naval officer Avila enters the bath room at the place where Edmond is about give his presentation – and hangs his rosary on the door hook. Afterwards, I did not come across any sentence that indicates he took off the rosary off the hook. This may not be so crucial, but we have remember that later on the rosary plays a major role….
    3. The book is written mostly in italics with regular fonts interspersed here and there! (Er, I mean that is the kind of impression one gets.) The gimmick becomes tiresome to the reader; and the author is at the risk of getting addicted to the technique.
    4.Likewise, the technique of introducing twists at the turn of the page, too, loses its original objective. (In the process commerce may gain, but literature loses; I am saying this with great humility as I am nobody as far as the business of writing is concerned.)
    5. A very, very peculiar thought – please keep it to yourself! After finishing the book, I had this strange thought that (as a matter of conjecture) professor Langdon just happens to be present in the pages, that the story could well have played out without his presence or participation!!! I apologise, but that is what I felt. Better say goodbye to Langdon!
    Plus point; I immensely like the scene where the professor shatters Edmond’s phone with a rock. Very good, there.
    You see, I enjoyed a lot reading his earlier books like Da Vinci…, Digital Fortress etc.
    God bless you. Have a nice day.
