The Whisper Man by Alex North.
A recently widowed ad and his young son move to a new town to try and start a new life – a place where many years ago some kids went missing but they thought that was all behind them. But when they arrive they find that’s not quite the case…..being reviewed internationally with a lot of excitement, for people who like this genre it’s a genuinely chilling thriller.
City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert. Fiction again, from the author best known for Eat, Pray, Love – and the themes of this are not a million miles away from that one. Novel set in 1940’s about a young naive country girl who goes to NYC and gets caught up with a theatre troupe and discovers a way of life (thespian) that she never knew existed. She’s a good writer and it’s a lot of fun.
