Monthly Crime Book Box – July 2020

Our crime book of the month for July is The Other Passenger by Louise Candlish!

I am thrilled to be giving you a signed, first edition of The Other Passenger by Louise Candlish. Louise’s first novel Our House was awarded Crime & Thriller Book of the Year 2019 at The British Book Awards and she has gone from strength to strength.

The book theme is ‘The London Commute’ as two of the main characters travel to work each day together on the Riverbus across the Thames.

The theme for our next monthly box is 'Detective Stories'

Louise Candlish’s favourite description of her brand of crime novel is ‘domestic noir’. The Other Passenger is full of psychological suspense, elegantly written and a wonderfully unpredictable.

What is essential on the daily commute or indeed when travelling at any time?

 A travel mug of course! Jamie, from whose point of the view the novel is written, is a barista which made this the perfect gift to complement the book.

Designed by Rex London’s in-house graphic designers and made from Bamboo fibre, this mug is both stylish and eco-friendly. The bamboo lid is spill proof, ideal for when you are on the move!

In celebration of London our capital city and it’s greatest detective, I have included the beautiful Sherlock Holmes art print and super size bookmark. No trip to London by a crime fiction fan would be complete without a visit to the iconic 221B Baker Street.

The designs were created by Nazli at Ghost Office prints after her own trip to Baker Street and I just love the colour palettes she has chosen. The art print is printed on high grade pulp paper to show it off at it’s best!
