Mailbox Monday is a weekly blog link up hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit and Martha of Reviews by Martha’s Bookshelf.
Please note I am not paid in anyway to promote these stores I just love a good bargain.
All books this week are from ‘The Works’ I love browsing this store for the 3 for £5 deal, and almost every trip I manage to add more books to my collection. Even if I do have to sneak them onto the bookcase before the husband notices.
Talking with Psychopaths and Savages Beyond Evil by Christopher Berry-Dee (£3 in The Works)
Sunday Times-bestselling author Christopher Berry-Dee is back with a companion volume that delves even deeper into the savage world of psychopaths and their hideous crimes. This time, however, he combines sections on killers whom he has known, interviewed or corresponded with, with studies of psychopathic serial killers from the past, including Peter Kürten, the ‘Düsseldorf Monster’, John Christie, responsible for the killings at 10 Rillington Place; and Neville Heath, a ladykiller in every sense of the word. The result is a chilling narrative that sets the forensic examination of killers and their crimes within the context of murder in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, an examination of the evil mind set against the insoluble problem of identifying psychopaths who kill.
The Slaughter Man by Cassandra Parkin (3 for £5 Deal in the Works)
When her identical twin Laurel dies, seventeen-year-old Willow s life falls apart. With her parents marriage faltering, she finds escape at her uncle Joe s cottage. But even as they begin to know each other, Willow is plagued with memories of her sister. Then, Lucas arrives in her life troubled, angry and with a dangerous past. Joe s cottage is idyllic, but the forest is filled with secrets. What is Joe hiding from her? What events have brought Lucas to her door? And who is the Slaughter Man who steals through Willow s sleep? As the lines between dreams and reality become blurred, Willow s torment deepens. It seems as if her only escape lies with the Slaughter Man.
The Boneless Mercies by April Genevieve Tucholke (3 for £5 Deal in The Works)
They called us the Mercies, or sometimes the Boneless Mercies. They said we were shadows, shots, and if you touch our skin we dissolved into smoke…. Frey, Ovie, Juniper, and Runa are Boneless Mercies – death-traders, hired to kill quickly, quietly and mercifully. It is a job for women, and women only. Men will not do this sad, dark work. Frey has no family, no home, no fortune, and yet her blood sings a song of glory. So when she hears of a monster slaughtering men, women, and children in a northern jarldom, she decides this the Mercies’ one chance to change their fate. But glory comes at a price …
Sister of Mine by Laurie Petrou (3 for £5 Deal in The Works)
Two sisters. One fire. A secret that won’t burn out. The Grayson sisters are trouble. Everyone in their small town knows it. But no-one can know of the secret that binds them together. Hattie is the light. Penny is the darkness. Together, they have balance. But one night the balance is toppled. A match is struck. A fire is started. A cruel husband is killed. The potential for a new life flickers in the fire’s embers, but resentment, guilt, and jealousy suffocate like smoke. Their lives have been engulfed in flames – will they ever be able to put them out?
