LITTLE MOMENTS 2020: 48/52: SOFA DAYS

 This week we have spent quite a few days on the sofa. Unfortunately I had a call Thursday from school saying Blake was unwell so had to be picked up. Poor little man was not himself at all and was pale and shivering. The rest of Thursday he just stayed cuddled up with me not moving, eating or drinking. Friday he was starting to feel slightly better and was able to eat and drink again in small amounts and had much more colour back in his cheeks.

It's been nice just snuggling up under a blanket on the sofa watching some of Blake's favourite shows. Once Blake was in bed one evening I treated myself to a bath followed by some white hot chocolate which was delicious. 

BLOG BOOK TOUR: LETTERS FROM THE DEAD

 Ad – review. I was sent a copy of this book for review purposes and all thoughts are my own.


Last year I took part in the book tour for Sam Hurcom's debut novel A Shadow on the lens which i really enjoyed. Now Sam's back with his second book Letters From The Dead which is a standalone  but follows the same protagonist, Thomas Bexley, who is one of the world’s first forensic photographers. This is a stifling and atmospheric gothic crime novel set in the early 20th century.



ABOUT THE BOOK:

The year is 1905. After a turbulent year, Thomas Bexley has become a drunkard and recluse, haunted by terrible visions of the dead. But when news of a spate of extraordinary kidnappings reaches him, he’s shocked to learn that his dear friend and former mentor, Professor Elijah Hawthorn, is the lead suspect.

 

Discovering a plea for help from Hawthorn claiming to have unearthed a gruesome conspiracy at the heart of the Met Police, Thomas embarks on a journey to prove Hawthorn's innocence.

 

But wherever Thomas goes, he is followed by the dead, and as the mystery of Hawthorn's disappearance deepens, so too does Thomas's apparent insanity... How can he be certain of the truth when he can't trust anybody around him, not even himself...?

 


Letters from the dead is a very gripping, dark and atmospheric read. I enjoyed the character Thomas Bexley who is smart but flawed in an authentic way. I like that due to him being addicted to alcohol, suffers from memory loss and has visions that he can be an unreliable narrator and at parts felt like he was the guilty party. Sam has done it again with a brilliant second novel. Although it works as a stand alone I feel reading his first book Shadow on the lens is a good idea as it gives you the background surrounding Thomas Bexley and why he has turned out the way he is.
