Between the Covers – February 25

NEW BOOKS ON THE 7 DAY SHELF this week are; “Fire and Blood” by George R.R. Martin, “The Clockmaker’s Daughter” by Kate Morton, “Never Tell” by Lisa Gardner and “Connection in Death” by J.D. Robb.


STAFF PICKS FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY ARE; “The Late Show” by Michael Connelly, “The Little Old Lady who Broke all the Rules” by Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg, “Day Into Night” by Dave Hugelschaffer and this week’s feature is “The Impossible Dead” by Ian Rankin (from book jacket) The Complaints: that’s the name given to the Internal Affairs department who seek out dirty and compromised cops, the ones who’ve made deals with the devil. And sometimes The Complaints must travel.

A major inquiry into a neighbouring police force sees Malcolm Fox and his colleagues cast adrift, unsure of territory, protocol, or who they can trust. An entire station-house looks to have been compromised, but as Fox digs deeper he finds the trail leads him back in time to the suicide of a prominent politician and activist. There are secrets buried in the past, and reputations on the line.

In his newest pulse-pounding thriller, Ian Rankin holds up a mirror to an age of fear and paranoia and shows us something of our own lives reflected there.
