Skin and Bones - Tom Bale

This is an absolutely great book that I have been lucky enough to have been sent an advanced proof copy. Look our for it! It comes out on 1st January 2009.

This is a fast paced English thriller, very much in the genre of No Time for Goodbye ( see below) that won Richard and Judy's Summer Read.

A young women walks into a massacre in a small country village in East Sussex. She survives the terrifying ordeal, but the police discount her evidence and so she joins up with one of the victim's son's to try and solve the discrepancy. This then becomes a terrifying race against time, the body count rises and I guarantee that this is a book you will not be able to put down! I spent the whole time on the edge of my seat, willing her to survive. It is also great to have a really strong female character in the lead!

A massacre of a village and a massacre of villains! Not my usual type of read, but thoroughly gripping. Fast paced, page turner complete with (as in No Time for Goodbye) unknown voice of evil. Guaranteed to enliven the cold nights of January and beyond!
