Book Clues: Crime & Mystery February 2020

Coming in our next Crime & Mystery Themed Book Subscription Box!

**Potential Spoiler Alert!**

Read on if you would like book hints to know more about what is coming in our next crime & mystery themed book subscription box. Part of the fun of our subscription is that subscribers do not know exactly what will be contained in their sapphire blue box until it lands on their doorstep and they unpack and unwrap the contents.

Yet on the other hand, I get so excited about the great books we are going to include and many of you like to play detective an idea of what is coming up so I’m going to give you some idea about all 3 fab books that will be in our February 2020 quarterly book subscription box.

In no particular order:

Book 1:

The first book I want to tell you about is wrapped in ice blue paper. It is Nordic Noir translated from Norwegian.

Fresh out of prison and a stint in a psychiatric hospital, a disgraced ex-policeman is called upon to look into the disappearance of the young cousin of the woman he loved and lost.

I love an unreliable narrator and this tormented, drug dependent, former policemen is perfect!

Book 2:

The next book I have wrapped in purple paper and is by an author known for her unguessable, impossible plots.

Follow along as the mystery of how the children of Beth's former best friend appear not to have aged since she saw them 12 years ago is unravelled or do your best to work it out before the startling resolution.

It kept me guessing right to the very end, I love it when I can't solve the mystery!

Book 3:

The third book completing the set of 3 books, I was super excited to read. This Scottish author blew me away with his novel Breakers earlier this year so when I heard he had written a book about three women taking over the running of a funeral directors and private investigators (what a combination!) I had to read it.

It is a departure from his previous work but is fantastic and fascinating. The three women are three generations of the same family thrown into the business when they inherit the family business after a sudden death.

Can you deduce the books in question? Happy mystery solving!
