Have you read The Poet?

Michael Connelly's The Poet is our April Book Of The Month! At only $12.99, it's great value!

What an experience! The Poet is a rollercoaster ride - a whole bunch of twists and turns and tiny, misleading drops that build up to the final plummet. This is a novel that kept me turning page after page, wanting to puzzle out whodunnit. I thought I was oh so clever following the hints in between the lines but boy was I wrong! A definite must read for lovers of John Grisham and David Baldacci! - Karen C., Tweed heads QBD

Book-A-Like: The Poet & Mr Mercedes

Gritty crime thrillers are the order of the day in today's QBD Book-a-like!

The Poet by Michael Connelly:

Denver crime-beat reporter Jack McEvoy specializes in violent death. So when his homicide detective brother kills himself, McEvoy copes in the only way he knows how--he decides to write the story. But his research leads him to suspect a serial killer is at work--a devious murderer who's killing cops and leaving a trail of poetic clues. It's the news story of a lifetime, if he can get the story without losing his life.

This is a great old-style detective thriller. The plot is intricate but flows along at a great rate - I couldn't put it down! Connelly has created a fantastically flawed character in Jack McEvoy, and you find yourself questioning his motives the whole way through. Read this if you enjoy Robert Galbraith and Lee Child!- Tina, Chatswood QBD

Mr Mercedes by Stephen King:

A cat-and-mouse suspense thriller featuring Bill Hodges, a retired cop who is tormented by 'the Mercedes massacre', a case he never solved.
Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of that notorious crime, has sent Hodges a taunting letter. Now he's preparing to kill again.
Each starts to close in on the other in a mega-stakes race against time!
