On What Cathy Read Next last week
Tuesday – I shared my review of crime novel, The Santa Killer by Ross Greenwood as part of the blog tour. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic was Book Titles Containing Geographical Terms.
Wednesday – I published my review of dual-time novel, Island of Secrets by Patricia Wilson, set on the island of Crete. WWW Wednesday is a weekly opportunity to share what I’ve just read, what I’m currently reading and what I plan to read next… and to take a peek at what others are reading.
Thursday – I shared my publication day review of historical novel, Essex Dogs by Dan Jones.
Friday – I made another trip Down the TBR Hole to take a long hard look at the oldest books in my TBR pile. Should they stay or should they go?
Saturday – I celebrated completing the When Are You Reading? Challenge 2022.
The Coming Darkness by Greg Mosse (ARC, Moonflower Books)
Paris, 2037. Alexandre Lamarque of the French external security service is hunting for eco-terrorists. Experience has taught him there is no one he can trust. Experience has taught him there is no one he can trust – not his secretive lover Mariam, not even his old mentor, Professor Fayard, the man at the centre of the web. He is ready to give up. But he can’t.
In search of the truth, Alex must follow the trail through an ominous spiral of events, from a string of brutal child murders to a chaotic coup in North Africa. He rapidly finds himself in a heart-thumping race against chaos and destruction. He could be the world’s only hope of preventing THE COMING DARKNESS…
SBS: Special Boat Squadron by Iain Gale (eARC, Head of Zeus via NetGalley)
From this moment on, you and your men, you don’t exist.
Operation Anglo, 31 August 1942. Beneath the waves of the Mediterranean, HMS Traveller closes in on the coast of Rhodes. Aboard, eight SBS commandos check their weapons as they prepare to infiltrate and sabotage two Axis bomber fields. Only two of the eight commandos will make it back to alive. Ex-Black Watch Sgt Jim Hunter will be one of the lucky ones, but what he will face next will make Operation Anglo look like a cakewalk.
