Book choice for October 2018

You Were Gone [suggested by Wendy Gibson]

You Were Gone

A woman walks into a police station.

She has no phone and no ID, just a piece of paper that reads 'David Raker'.

She says she's his wife.

She looks just like her.

She knows everything about him.

But David buried his wife eight years ago.


Is this really the woman he loved?

Did he really say goodbye?

Or is he losing his mind?

Shortlisted for this month

Back to normal book selection for this month. Wendy's other choices were:

Force of Nature

Force of Nature

FIVE WENT OUT. FOUR CAME BACK...

Is Alice here? Did she make it? Is she safe? In the chaos, in the night, it was impossible to say which of the four had asked after Alice's welfare. Later, when everything got worse, each would insist it had been them.

Five women reluctantly pick up their backpacks and start walking along the muddy track. Only four come out the other side.

The hike through the rugged landscape is meant to take the office colleagues out of their air-conditioned comfort zone and teach resilience and team building. At least that is what the corporate retreat website advertises.

Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk has a particularly keen interest in the whereabouts of the missing bushwalker. Alice Russell is the whistleblower in his latest case - and Alice knew secrets. About the company she worked for and the people she worked with.

Far from the hike encouraging teamwork, the women tell Falk a tale of suspicion, violence and disintegrating trust. And as he delves into the disappearance, it seems some dangers may run far deeper than anyone knew.

THE SERIAL KILLER ISN'T ON TRIAL.

HE'S ON THE JURY...


'To your knowledge, is there anything that would preclude you from serving on this jury?'

Murder wasn't the hard part. It was just the start of the game.

Joshua Kane has been preparing for this moment his whole life. He's done it before. But this is the big one.

This is the murder trial of the century. And Kane has killed to get the best seat in the house.

But there's someone on his tail. Someone who suspects that the killer isn't the man on trial.

Kane knows time is running out - he just needs to get to the conviction without being discovered.
