This week, Thalia Proctor from Sphere is doing the Friday Read:
Richard Montanari is often overlooked in the American crime genre, and this is wrong, as he writes wonderfully and his novels pack a dark punch. I suggest you give him a go, if you haven’t. His previous tiles have been The Stolen Ones, The Doll Maker, Shutter Man and The Killing Room.
In this latest, he introduces psychologist Will, who moves with his surly teenage daughter to a small town where murders have happened, and they’re linked to an 18th century diary which runs through the novel. It’s mysterious and gripping – plus there are some cool designs on the part-titles for you to enjoy.
