WIN: Criminally Good Reads for Winter


The days are getting colder, the nights are getting longer, it’s the perfect time to stay indoors and get engrossed in a criminally good book! Check out these five titles that are hot off the press.

The Burial Hour
Jeffery Deaver


The only leads in a broad-daylight kidnapping are the account of an eight-year-old girl, some nearly invisible trace evidence and the calling card: a miniature noose left lying on the street. A crime scene this puzzling demands forensic expertise of the highest order. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are called in to investigate.


Since We Fell
Dennis Lehane


Rachel's husband adores her. When she hit rock bottom, he was there with her every step of the way as she slowly regained her confidence, and her sanity. But his mysterious behaviour forces her to probe for the truth about her beloved husband.


Parting Shot
Linwood Barclay


When a young girl is killed by a drunk driver, the community wants answers. As pack mentality kicks in and social media outrage builds, vicious threats are made. When Cal Weaver is called in to investigate, he finds himself caught up in a cold-blooded revenge plot. Someone in the town is threatening to put right some wrongs.


The Baltimore Boys
Joel Dicker


The Baltimore Boys. The Goldman Gang. Three brilliant young men with their whole lives ahead of them, before their kingdom crumbled beneath the weight of lies, jealousy and betrayal. For years, Marcus has struggled with the burdens of his past, but now, he must attempt to banish his demons and tell the real story of the Baltimore Boys.


Operation Relentless
Damien Lewis


This is the incredible true tale of the mission that former SAS man Mike Snow and a handful of US DEA operatives launched in 2007 to entrap Viktor Bout – the world’s foremost arms dealer. This story ranges from the steamy jungles of Colombia to the ice-bound streets of Moscow, and from horrific bloodshed and tyranny in the Congo, to a snatch operation like no other.
