The Moscow Cipher (Ben Hope, Book 17)

A good addition to the series

Bad Self: A sensational DS Lasser crime thriller (The DS Lasser series Book 8)

Crave: How far would you go to save the ones you love! (The DS Lasser Series Book 9)

Both good reads

Lost Creed

OK, but not the best in the series

Missed a couple of months, but the last couple of book club books were:-

Ice by Anna Kavan. Supposedly a classic but I found it absolutely awful. Disjointed, no real plot, and one of the worst books I've read. On the other hand, one of the people said "It's a masterpiece, 10/10"! It totally split the group with low & high scores but no middle scores at all.

Then we had Memory of Water by Emmi Itäranta. This was a much better book, well written and a very pleasant read. The group almost universally gave it high scores, with only one middling score.

Next month's book is Everfair by Nisi Shawl. The premise sounds good, but I've only read the prologue so I've no idea how it'll turn out. Only got a couple of weeks to read it!
