So me and my workmates have a little book club going on…
We actually DO make sure we properly discuss the book in question, (unlike many other book groups I know of!) but we combine it with a glass of wine and, occasionally, food too, one night in the week after work.
There have actually been a few other books we’ve previously read and discussed but I didn’t get my act together before to put them on here unfortunately. Well from now on I will!
So if anyone wants to read along with us, I’d love to hear your thoughts, and you never know, it might encourage you to read something a little different, which is kind of the whole point! 🙂
** This month’s book is… Wrongful Death by Lynda LaPlante. **
Six months after the body of Josh Reynolds, a London nightclub owner, was found and determined by police and coroner to be a suicide, DCS James Langton tasks DCI Anna Travis to review the case. Reynolds died from a single gunshot wound to the head, the gun held in his right hand. But details are emerging that suggest someone else may have fired the gun… As soon as she wraps up the case, Langton tells Anna, she can join him at the FBI Academy in Virginia for training. Meanwhile, a Senior FBI Agent, Jessie Dewar, crime scene expert, is seconded to Anna’s team as part of her research and immediately the competence of the original investigation team is questioned…
This was picked by one of my colleagues who is a big crime fan and it will be the first Crime/ Detective novel we’ve read. Surprisingly, even though I love crime novels, I haven’t yet picked one for my choice and I’ve also never read any Lynda LaPlante books so this will be a first for me!
I’ll post after our meeting and let you know what me and the group thought of it!
Are you part of a book group? Have you read any Lynda LaPlante books? If so what did you think?
