About the Book
Oblivion awaits the Angel’s salvation
The Boy can see lost souls.
He has never questioned the fact that he can see them. He thinks of them as the Dark Chorus. When he sets out to restore the soul of his dead mother it becomes clear that his ability comes from within him. It is a force that he cannot ignore – the last shard of the shattered soul of an angel.
To be restored to the kingdom of light, the shard must be cleansed of the evil that infects it – but this requires the corrupt souls of the living!
With the help from Makka, a psychotically violent young man full of hate, and Vee, an abused young woman full of pain, the Boy begins to kill.
Psychiatrist Dr Eve Rhodes is seconded to assist the police investigation into the Boy’s apparently random ritualistic killings. As the investigation gathers pace, a pattern emerges. When Eve pulls at the thread from an article in an old psychology journal, what might otherwise have seemed to her a terrible psychotic delusion now feels all too real…
Will the Boy succeed in restoring the angel’s soul to the light? Can Eve stop him, or will she be lost to realm of the Dark Chorus?
Published in April 2017 Dead Woman Walking was my first book by Sharon Bolton.
Thirteen passengers in a hot air balloon glide over the Northumberland National Park. Unlucky, you might think. And you’d be right. Jessica Lane had booked the flight as a surprise for her sister, Isabel’s 40th birthday.

Four years have passed since Voyager One sent back chilling photos of a spaceship from deep in interstellar space.
A shocked world prepared to meet the Visitors, but terrorism, pandemics, and global political turmoil have now consumed it. Discredited as a hoax, the Visitors have faded from public attention.
But the powerful global conspiracy known as the Triumvirate is behind much of the chaos. Creating a screen of subterfuge and misdirection, they prepare a clandestine welcome for the Visitors, whose origins may be more sinister than the aliens of popular fiction.
Although this is the second book in the trilogy, there is enough information included, in a non intrusive way, to understand about the conspiracy, and what happened in the first book, Voyager.
Today I’m looking back at The Fallen Agent which was released in October 2017.
Jess Albion, ex MI5, was convicted of murder and sentenced to ten years imprisonment when an assignment went wrong. The father of the murdered man, Amir Bashar, an Albanian mafia boss, wanted revenge. He sent two assassins to the cell of the imprisoned woman. Only it was the wrong woman. The real Jess Albion had been spirited away to the other side of the world, under a new identity. Amir Bashar is angry, feeling the British justice system has let him and his son down, and is threatening a terror attack on London unless he’s told where Jess is. Jess’ colleagues take the decision to give her up as collateral damage.

Throwback Thursday this week looks back at an audiobook full of tension and twists, performed brilliantly by MacLeod Andrews. It was released in August 2017 by Harper Audio.
Set in 1950s California, the McCray family live in the small town of Cottonwood. Kate McCray was born and bred there and when she married Michael McCray that’s where they set up home. Their two boys, Sean and Danny, ten and six respectively, complete their family.
The Lies Within was published in May 2017 and is the third book in the excellent Will Jackman series, set in Stratford upon Avon.
Grace Daniels, mother and grandmother, is on trial for murder. The story begins on the first day with a forceful opening of the prosecution’s case. ‘Be under no illusions by her smart clothes, her kind face and eloquent manner… This woman is guilty of murder…’ I was hooked immediately, and having read and enjoyed the first two books in the series I was sure this would be another gripping instalment.
