Mallachy Tallack’s book comes highly recommended for those of you who read this blog and embrace the North as it takes in Shetland, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Greenland, Russia, Alaska and Canada.

60 Degrees

 

60 Degrees North by @malachytallack, Travel, history, nature & experience wrapped up in a blanket of North. A kindred spirit. Top read.

Killing Season

The Killing Season by @MasonCrossBooks – Chase me. I dare you. Pacy novel set in USA. A real page turner with FBI, guns, tension and a kiss.

Bay of martyrs

Bay of Martyrs by @TonyblackUk & @DrMattNeal – Jaded Australian journo solves the case. Character driven, down to earth & highly enjoyable.
