My library said I can only have them for 3 weeks. I reckon 3 days will be enough to devour these beauties. #pageturners @callytaylor @RozWatkins #amreading #crimefiction

A thriller as dark, cold and claustrophobic as the earth Aurora lies beneath. Superb. @thegyth #amreading #crimefiction

Hope we get lots of Emmanuel flashback scenes. Liked him. #TheWidow

I remember reading the first chapter of this novel as a taster at the end of The Devil's Dice. It's still vivid months later. This review suggests the whole book is as mesmerising. It's just shot to the top of my reading pile. @RozWatkins #crimefiction
