Synopsis:

Finding themselves in a slave community hidden within the Great Dismal Swamp, Will Rees and his wife Lydia get caught up in a dangerous murder case where no one trusts them.
September 1800, Maine. Will Rees is beseeched by Tobias, an old friend abducted by slave catchers years before, to travel south to Virginia to help transport his pregnant wife, Ruth, back north. Though he’s reluctant, Will’s wife Lydia convinces him to go . . . on the condition she accompanies them.

Upon arriving in a small community of absconded slaves hiding within the Great Dismal Swamp, Will and Lydia are met with distrust. Tensions are high and a fight breaks out between Tobias and Scipio, a philanderer with a bounty on his head known for conning men out of money. The following day Scipio is found dead – shot in the back.

Stuck within the hostile Great Dismal and with slave catchers on the prowl, Will and Lydia find themselves caught up in their most dangerous case yet.

This week question:

Does the cover of a book affect whether you are more willing to read it? (submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)

My answer:

Not in a negative way. If I like the cover I may notice it and pick it up, but if I don’t like the cover and I like the blurb then I read it anyway and it it’s part of a series I will read it even if the cover sucks (see Hello Again: Hanover House which the Italian cover sucked – even if the English one was beautiful – and I read it anyway).

Tortured and left for dead at sixteen, Evelyn Talbot turned her personal nightmare into her life’s work—studying the disturbing psychopathy of some of the world’s most vicious serial killers. Now a leading psychiatrist at Hanover House in a small Alaskan town, she tries to believe the past will never come back to haunt her—until a woman goes missing from a cabin nearby, and every clue points to the man who once brutalized her…

As her boyfriend, who is the area’s only police, begins to investigate—and finds not one but two bodies—Evelyn can’t forget that her would-be killer, Jasper Moore, was never caught. But there are no new faces in tiny Hilltop, no one who seems suspicious or potentially violent. In this twisted game of cat and mouse, Evelyn is certain of only one thing—Jasper must be hiding in plain sight. And if she can’t find him before he comes for her, she won’t be lucky enough to survive twice…


About the book

Third book in the Brenda Novak series set in Alaska. Eight months have passed since the last book in which Evelyn, for the umpteenth time, was attacked because of her job, but fortunately she was saved by her new guard. Now she would like to have a child with Amarok, but the baby doesn’t arrive. Meanwhile, a tourist disappears and fear returns to Hilltop and many, including Amarok’s ex, blame Evelyn and Hanover House, the psychiatric clinic where she works in which the most dangerous criminals are locked up.

This week question:

Do you think you will ever get tired of blogging? (submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)

My answer:

Sometimes I do. Sometimes I go through those moments where I don’t want to do anything and having a double language blog is tiring. I write my reviews in Italian but never translate them in English as soon as I’m done with my language. So when I need to come back and translate it tires me, if you add these low times (I’m just going through one now, being an emphatic person sucks) then I sometimes don’t want to write anymore. But then I come back when I’m better so I don’t know. It depends on my health I think.
