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 Soul of Discretion by Susan Hill which is the eighth book in the Simon Serrailler series.

The Soul of Discretion

Blurb

The cathedral town of Lafferton seems idyllic, but in many ways it is just like any other place. As part of the same rapidly changing world, it shares the same hopes and fears, and the same kinds of crime, as any number of towns up and down the land.
When one day DC Simon Serrailler is called in by Lafferton’s new Chief Constable, Kieron Bright, he is met by four plainclothes officers. He is asked to take the lead role in a complex, potentially dangerous undercover operation and must leave town immediately, without telling anyone – not even his girlfriend Rachel, who has only just moved in with him.
Meanwhile, Simon’s sister Cat is facing difficult choices at work that will test her dedication to the NHS. But an urgent call about her and Simon’s father, Richard, soon presents her with a far greater challenge much closer to home.
To complete his special op, Simon must inhabit the mind of the worst kind of criminal. As the op unfolds, Lafferton is dragged into the sort of case every town dreads. And Simon faces the fight of his life. Amazon

I have just finished the novella The Whispers by Lisa Unger which tells the tale of Eloise Montgomery who develops psychic powers following the death of her husband and eldest daughter. This is the first part of a three part series which are being published a month apart.
My review will follow shortly…

The Whispers

Next I am going to read The Night Hunter by Caro Ramsay

The Night Hunter

Blurb

Elvie McCulloch’s sister Sophie has been missing for 57 days. She went out for a run – and never came home. Several young woman in the area have disappeared in similar circumstances, and Elvie’s family fears the worst.
As Elvie is driving to her new job late at night, the naked, emaciated body of a young woman crashes from high above onto an oncoming car. Elvie recognises her as Lorna Lennox, who has been missing for weeks. But why was she up there? Where had she been all this time? And why was she running for her life?
Teaming up with retired detective Billy Hopkirk, who has been retained by the mother of one of the missing girls to find her daughter, Elvie determines to find out the truth. But as the pair alternately collaborate with and infuriate investigating police detectives Anderson and Costello, they find themselves up against a terrifying enemy. Someone who has killed before. Someone who will kill again, for pure enjoyment. Someone they call The Night Hunter. NetGalley

  1. I’ve just bought the first in the Susan Hill series and I’m looking forward to starting it. I seem to be going through a bit of a bad patch with my reading choices at the minute. I’ve just ditched a second book half way through. Which might mean it’s me and I’m getting reading fatigued. Or just fatigued! So I’m going to have to choose my next read wisely!

    1. Despite having chosen the most recent book I instantly got into this one – the writing style is so accessible that I read far more pages than was sensible last night! Hopefully you will get over your fatigue soon.

  2. Cleo – I’ve heard The Whispers is good. I’ll be keen to see what you thought of it. It’ll also be interesting to see what you think of The Night Hunter . Usually I’m not one for those ‘series of girls missing’ sorts of plot, but sometimes they can work well.

  3. I love everything on your WWW this week! I haven’t read any of the books yet, but I’ve read Susan Hill previously and I enjoy her work. The Whispers sounds like a book I would enjoy and The Night Hunter sounds like the perfect read for Halloween. 🙂

  4. Hi Cleo,

    All three of your books sound good to me this week, although purely on the grounds that this is a serialised book which doesn’t really interest me, I shll be discarding ‘The Whispers’

    I haven’t read either of the remaining two authors before, but as they have both received such amazing ratings and reviews, I don’t think I can go wrong!

    Thanks for the excellent feature post this week.
