Booklover Mailbox – And Fire Came Down, Ask No Questions & Betrayal at Iga

New books from Lisa Hartley, Emma Viskic and Susan Spann

Three new books added to our reading pile over the last few weeks – all series titles.

Ask No Questions by Lisa Hartley

Lisa Hartley is the bestselling author of the Detective Sergeant Catherine Bishop Series. This is the first book in her new Detective Caelan Small Series.

After an operation goes badly wrong, undercover specialist Detective Caelan Small leaves the Metropolitan Police for good. Or so she thinks. Then the criminal responsible is seen back in the UK. Soon Caelan is drawn back into a dangerous investigation. But when the main lead is suddenly murdered, all bets are off. Nothing is as it seems. Everyone is a suspect – even close colleagues. Someone in the Met is involved and Caelan is being told to Ask No Questions.

And Fire Came Down by Emma Viskic

To say I was excited when this hotly anticipated title, Book 2 in the Caleb Zelic Thriller Series arrived in the mail was an understatement.

Pushkin Vertigo CoverEmma Viskic’s first title, Resurrection Bay, was one of my favourite books of 2015 and it went on to win lots of awards here in Australia incl. the Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction. It is a thriller of substance – a must read. AND I’m delighted to report that Pushkin Vertigo think so too, recently announcing upcoming UK and US release dates.

Unsurprisingly And Fire Came Down is already getting rave reviews pre-release, and it is next up on my reading pile!

1 August release. Review copy thanks to Bonnier Publishing.

Betrayal at Iga by Susan Spann

I have a soft spot for Susan Spann’s Hiro Hattori Novels (Shinobi Mysteries). After enjoying The Blade of the Samurai (Book 2), hosting a very interesting post from the author about Goshikimai: the Ninjas’ Coded Rice for Book 3’s release and being entertained by The Ninja’s Daughter (Book 4), I was delighted to receive a copy of Betrayal at Iga (Book 5).

“Spann keeps getting better, as shown by her fifth novel set in 16th-century Japan, a taut closed-circle mystery with perilous consequences…. Fans of classic whodunits will be pleased.” —Publishers Weekly

July release. Review copy thanks to Seventh Street Books.
