Joanna Toye’s Wartime For the Shop Girls, the second Marlow’s Department book, is out in eBook this Thursday (3rd October) and you can pre-order here.
It has also been announced that the third book in the series will be called Heartache for the Shop Girls. This uplifting tale will be published in 2020.
When a body of a woman is discovered at a lighthouse in the Icelandic town of Akranes, it soon becomes clear that she’s no stranger to the area.
Chief Investigating Officer Elma, who has returned to Akranes following a failed relationship, and her colleagues Sævar and Hörður, commence an uneasy investigation, which uncovers a shocking secret in the dead woman’s past that continues to reverberate in the present day …
But as Elma and her team make a series of discoveries, they bring to light a host of long-hidden crimes that shake the entire community. Sifting through the rubble of the townspeople’s shattered memories, they have to dodge increasingly serious threats, and find justice … before it’s too late.
An exquisitely written, disturbing, claustrophobic and chillingly atmospheric thriller, The Creak on the Stairs is the first in an electrifying series, by one of Iceland’s most exciting new talents.
This title will be available for pre-order soon.
