WWW Wednesday #2 – 10 February 2021

It’s WWW Wednesday again.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam A. Stevens on Taking on a World of Words.

The three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’re read next?

 

Crow Court by Andy Charman

 

Reading via Pigeonhole and today is stave 8 of 10, so almost at the end. This is a real interesting book. More like a series of short stories or scenes, although there is an overall narrative of the murder of the pederast choirmaster which took place in the first chapter and hangs over the rest of the events in this Cornish town. The author has purposefully played with style and form taking a different approach for each chapter. Personally I’m finding this more of a distraction from the story than a positive addition, although the chapter endnotes where he explains what he’s done offer an interesting insight into the writing process.

Every Last Fear by Alex Finlay

This comes out later next month so I’ll publish my full review nearer the time. But, this is an excellent, engaging thriller. When teen quarterback Danny Pine is charged and convicted of murder after a high school party he may be the one in prison, but his family are also sentenced to social exclusion and their own obsession with proving Danny’s innocence. All except younger brother Matt who is hiding his own secret about why he isn’t so convinced Danny is innocent. But, when an apparent accident in Mexico kills the remaining Pines, it’s Matt’s turn to investigate and find out what really happened at that party.

Light Seekers by Femi Kayode

This is the only one I know for sure I’ll be reading over the next week as it’s scheduled to start on Pigeonhole on 12 Feb. It’s a legal drama/crime story set in Nigeria by an author I’ve never read before so I’m looking forward to trying it.
