My To-Read Books


AVAILABLE DARK by Elizabeth Hand
Genre: Mystery-Crime


“Photographer Cass Neary is already wanted by the police for questioning when she receives a mysterious job offer that sends her to Helsinki, where an iconic fashion photographer shows her a trove of gorgeous photos depicting ritual killings. After narrowly escaping death herself, Cass flees to Iceland, where she finds a former lover and a legendary, exiled musician. Soon, unsolved murders are multiplying faster than Cass can run.

Elizabeth Hand is a prodigiously gifted storyteller, as is evidenced by having been awarded the highest honours in several different fields. First-rate fiction set in Scandinavia, Available Dark, sequel to Hand’s acclaimed cult hit Generation Loss, proves that she has also reached the pinnacle as a suspense writer.”

Well, that last statement remains to be seen, as I have yet to read and judge this one, especially given (again) this is a sequel and I haven’t read the first installment. I might have to leave this one and check out Generation Loss… or, maybe not! So many books, so little time. sigh!
