TBRbook2The Back Road by Rachel Abbott

From the author of #1 bestseller – Only the Innocent.

One girl is fighting for her life in hospital… One village is struggling to hold tight to its secrets.

When a young girl is knocked over and left for dead at the side of the road, the small community of Little Melham goes into shock. Why was Abbie out so late at night, and why wasn’t she missed?

For Ellie Saunders, the truth about that night could put her marriage and even the safety of her children in jeopardy. She has to protect her family, no matter what the consequences.

Former DCI Tom Douglas thought that Little Melham would offer a peaceful retreat from the daily trauma of his work for the Met. But as he is drawn into the web of deceit, his every instinct tells him that what happened to Abbie was more than a tragic accident…

Only one person knows the whole story – why Abbie was out that night, and who was driving the car. For that person, the accident spells disaster, and somebody has to pay.

Redemption Blues by T D Griggs

Redemption Blues by T D Griggs CHRISTMAS, and it’s the end of the road for Matt and Lauren Silver’s tempestuous marriage. Rock star Silver has been touring abroad just once too often, neglecting Lauren and their twin daughters, Gudrun and Freya. In a desperate attempt to put things right, Silver cancels his tour and comes home for his children – but instead of the reconciliation he seeks he triggers a tragedy which will shatter all their lives forever. Silver’s car smashes though bridge railings into the River Thames. Little Gudrun is killed in the horrific crash and Silver himself vanishes into the shadows of underworld London, injured, traumatized, and unable to face what he has done. Lauren Silver is crushed by guilt, and young Freya is so emotionally scarred that no-one can reach her.

No-one except Inspector Sam Cobb, the detective sent to investigate the tragedy – a man with scars of his own. He only reluctantly enters the Silvers’ bleak world, but when he does he brings hope. Hope of recovery. Hope for the future. Hope of redemption.

But Matt Silver is not yet out of their lives. Disfigured and desolate, he has found comfort of a kind, thanks to the humanity of new and unexpected allies. Despite himself he has begun to heal, to grow stronger. To think of emerging from the shadows.

For Sam Cobb, Lauren and Freya there will come a time when hope alone is not enough.

This is not exactly the normal kind of book promo’ for a Thursday, but is worth inclusion.

Terry Irving Angry Robot crime imprint Exhibit A has signed two new novels from award-winning journalist Terry Irving.

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
