Beautifully written story of a medical researcher who goes in search of her dead colleague in the Amazon forest. Her former medical professor heads up a deep-in-the forest fertility research project, where Marina is traveling to, and has given scant information on the details surrounding the jungle fever that overtook her friend. What Marina finds in her harrowing travels soothes her past and uncovers a new-found strength that takes hold within herself. Very readable and even though I thought I knew how this story would end, it surprised me.
Crime novel set both during World War I in London, England and present day. A detective duo in their 80′s (how cool is that) from the Peculiar Crimes Division are stopped in their tracks by a murder suspect who has risen from the past and is intent on killing the pair. The story flips back and forth between current day and the early 1900s when the duo first meet, during an investigation into a series of murders at a theater. First book in a series.
I’m not one for overly grisly murder mysteries and this is one that I could handle. Just the right amount of tension, eeriness and British humor for me. Will definitely read another one from the series.
If you’re looking for your next book, I love to read, so maybe you’ll find something you like here:
Also, in the name of being accountable, I’ve read 9 books this year on my way to a goal of 30. Not sweating it yet.
What are you reading right now? I have SO many friends reading 50 Shades of Grey. Are you too?
