Stacking the Shelves (September 12)

Stacking the shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you’re adding to your shelves, be it buying or borrowing. From ‘real’ books you’ve purchased, a book you’ve borrowed, a book you’ve been given or an e-book they can all be shared!

This week I have a few additions to the good old TBR starting with What Remains by Tim Weaver – I really enjoyed both Vanished and Fall From Grace from this series featuring David Raker, but as so often happens haven’t read any of the other’s so I was delighted to be approved to read a copy of this, his latest, via NetGalley

What Remains


Colm Healy used to be one of the Met’s best police officers. Until, haunted by the murder of a mother and her two twin daughters Healy’s life unravels.
Years later, the only person who understands Healy is private investigator David Raker. But as they begin to delve into the case, Healy disappears.
Raker understands the missing and the lost, but he knows that to find Healy he must solve the case that broke him.
His search will lead him down a trail of darkness, tragedy and broken trust which will take him to his limit. NetGalley

What Remains was published by Penguin UK on 16 July 2015

I was also approved to read the latest of the Nicci French; Friday On My Mind, part of this brilliant duo’s series featuring the days of the week – this series I am reading in order and Thursday’s Child is sitting patiently on my bookshelf. Friday On My Mind was published on 2 July 2015.

Friday on my Mind


When a bloated corpse is found floating in the River Thames the police can at least sure that identifying the victim will be straightforward. Around the dead man’s wrist is a hospital band. On it are the words Dr F. Klein.
But psychotherapist Frieda Klein is very much alive. And, after evidence linking her to the murder is discovered, she becomes the prime suspect.
Unable to convince the police of her innocence, Frieda is forced to make a bold decision in order to piece together the terrible truth before it’s too late either for her or for those she loves. NetGalley

Lastly I have a copy of What Lies in the Dark by CM Thompson which was published by Hookline books back in February of this year.

What Lies in the Dark


One murder can make a town nervous. Two brings fear.
Add, three, four and even more, and watch neighbour turn on suspicious neighbour.
Victoria Bullrush – or Bullface, as she is called by fellow police officers – is a stickler for rules. As she tries to maintain a faultless investigation, she can’t ignore the public’s growing anger. NetGalley

So there are my finds – What have you found to read this week?

  1. You’ve found some good reads, Cleo. I really hope you’ll like the Nicci French; that team does such a good job building suspense, I think. I’ll be keen to know what you think of that one.


  2. I’ve read the previous Nicci French books in this series and have this current on my WL, also the new Tim Weaver. I haven’t heard of What Lies in the Dark, will investigate. I have Ridley Road by Jo Bloom, Tremarnock by Emma Burstall and Orkney Twilight by Clare Carson as my next reads


  3. I think the last one appeals most to me this week. There’s something about the blurb that makes it sound almost cosy-ish but the cover and title suggest something harder. Be interested to hear what you think of it. 🙂
