WWW Wednesday green

Hosted by Miz B at Should be Reading

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

I am currently reading The Dying Hours by Mark Billingham

The Dying Hours

Blurb

It’s been twenty-five years since Tom Thorne last went to work wearing the “Queen’s cloth” but now, having stepped out of line once too often, he’s back in uniform. He’s no longer a detective, and he hates it.

Still struggling to adjust, Thorne becomes convinced that a spate of suicides among the elderly in London are something more sinister. His concerns are dismissed by the Murder Squad he was once part of and he is forced to investigate alone.

Now, unable to trust anybody, Thorne risks losing those closest to him as well as endangering those being targeted by a killer unlike any he has hunted before. A man with nothing to lose and a growing list of victims. A man who appears to have the power to make people take their own lives.

I have just finished I Came To Say Goodbye by Caroline Overington

I think I will read The Dinner by Herman Koch

The Diner

Blurb

An evening in Amsterdam and two couples meet for dinner.
They need to discuss their teenage sons.
The boys have committed a horrifying act, caught on CCTV.
They remain unidentified – except by their parents.
How far will each couple go to protect their child?

  1. I’ll be interested to read your thoughts on “The Dinner”. I had mixed feelings . . . but I’m still thinking about it, so I guess that means it was good writing!

    1. Interesting – My daughter wasn’t too keen and I’ve heard mixed reviews but it is on the shelf to be read so read it I will – I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you when I’m done 🙂

    1. Me too. I bought it was all up for reading it and then saw some mixed reviews – most importantly my daughter said don’t rush to read it and our tastes are pretty similar…. but in the spirit of reading this pile of books I have it has been scheduled in! 🙂

    1. I like books set in London too! Coincidently I have just had a couple of notifications through this morning from eReaderIQ.com that a couple of Mark Billingham’s books have been reduced to 99p for kindle on Amazon. Thanks for sharing your link with me.

  2. He’s definitely worth reading – I did get some notifications from eReaderIQ that a couple of his books had been reduced for kindle yesterday so now might be a good time to have a look… the author was/is a stand-up comedian so there is a bit of humour to take the edge of the crimes 🙂
