Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday!

I’m reading Ordeal by Innocence by Agatha Christie

I’ve not read this book before, but after reading a few pages, I realise I have seen a TV adaptation of it (not the latest BBC one), although I don’t recall it being the same title for TV.

The blurb

Evidence that clears the name of a boy sentenced for killing his adopted mother arrives too late to save his life – so who did kill her?

According to the courts, Jacko Argyle bludgeoned his mother to death with a poker. The sentence was life imprisonment

But when Dr Arthur Calgary turns up a year later with the proof that confirms Jacko’s innocence, he is too late – Jacko died behind bars from a bout of pneumonia.

Worse still, the doctor’s revelations re-open old wounds in the family, increasing the likelihood that the real murderer will strike again…

 

 


I recently finished The Feed by Nick Clark Windo

I didn’t really connect with this book until about 2/3 of the way where something significant happened which made me read on and faster! I’m not into books that confuse me.

The blurb

Your knowledge. Your memories. Your dreams.
If all you are is on the Feed, what will you become when the Feed goes down?

For Tom and Kate, in the six years since the world collapsed, every day has been a fight for survival. And when their daughter, Bea, goes missing, they will question whether they can even trust each other anymore.

The threat is closer than they realise…

 

 

 


What’s up next?

I read and enjoyed the first of J.S Law’s books and was lucky enough to be sent an ARC.  This was actually published in February so am a bit behind.

The blurb

A teenage sailor disappears on HMS Defiance, an infamous closed case reopens, and Lt. Danielle Lewis fights for truth and survival in this high-octane military thriller

After events on board the submarine HMS Tenacity, Lieutenant “Dan” Lewis of the Royal Navy’s Kill Team was warned not to pursue those responsible. She should walk away, stop investigating, but her thirst for justice means she can’t let it go.

But even as Dan defies the order, continuing to track a sailor on the run, her investigative skills are needed on a new case. A young naval Wren has gone missing from the warship HMS Defiance. Last seen going on board, but never seen leaving, there is no trace of the girl and Dan must work her way through a web of witness accounts to uncover what might motivate her to run, or what might motivate a predator to take her.

Following in the wake of the missing girl, Dan soon closes in on her quarry, but is forced to question whether she is the one who was being hunted all along.

    I haven’t read any of these but the Agatha Christie novel is calling to me already. I don’t like books that confuse me either so hmm The Feed might not be something for me :-). My www will be posted in an hour but I can tell you already I’m reading Everything Is Lies for the moment and it’s a great book 🙂

      Most Christie novels call to me too. I have a lot on my TBR shelf as well 😉
      Yeah, The Feed isn’t going to be to everyone’s tastes…a little out of my comfort zone!

    I really enjoyed the latest TV adaptation of Ordeal by Innocence but have heard it’s quite different from the book. I am curious so will no doubt pick it up at some point. Maybe it’ll be my first ever Christie.

      You’ve never read a Christie!?! There are others that I suspect will be a better first experience than this one, such as And Then There Were None. I’m looking forward to catching up with the BBC adaptation 🙂

    If you’ve seen or read The Circle by Dave Eggers, it’s something like that but way in the future. Weird!
