I have just started reading What Remains of Me by A L Gaylin, a story of a woman who when she was a teenage girl in 1980 was jailed for killing a Hollywood director. Now released she is chief suspect when her father-in-law is shot.

Andy Boyd thinks he is the luckiest man alive. Widowed with a young child, after his wife dies in childbirth, he is certain that he will never again experience true love. Then he meets Anna. Feisty, fun and beautiful, she’s his perfect match… And she loves his son, too. When Andy ends up in the hospital on his wedding night, he receives his first clue that Anna is not all that she seems. He ignores it; a dangerous mistake that could cost him everything.
A brave, deeply moving psychological thriller which marks a stunning departure for one of Scotland’s top crime writers. Amazon

Next up I’m hoping to get to Good Me, Bad Me by Ali Land which will be published on 12 January 2017 by Penguin UK

‘NEW N A M E . NEW F A M I LY. S H I N Y. NEW. ME .
Annie’s mother is a serial killer. The only way she can make it stop is to hand her in to the police. But out of sight is not out of mind. As her mother’s trial looms, the secrets of her past won’t let Annie sleep, even with a new foster family and name – Milly. A fresh start. Now, surely, she can be whoever she wants to be. But Milly’s mother is a serial killer. And blood is thicker than water. Good me, bad me. She is, after all, her mother’s daughter…
Translated into over 20 languages, Good Me Bad Me is a tour de force. In its narrator, Milly Barnes, we have a voice to be reckoned with, and in its author, Ali Land, an extraordinary new talent. NetGalley
