It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organize yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.
What I read last week:
The Perfect Ending By: Rob Kaufman
Paralyzed by writer’s block, Scott Atwood (the award-winning, psychological thriller author ) realizes his career is over. He decides to end his life in a way that will thrill fans with his typical mind-blowing finale.
But just as Scott resolves to jump in front of a train, he comes up with a plot for his next bestseller — a thriller-suspense writer who wreaks havoc in other people’s lives to help create new ideas.
He starts by exposing his neighbor’s affair with devastating and lethal repercussions. His plan quickly spirals wildly out of control as the lines between fiction and reality get hazy and deadly.

Absolution By: Caro Ramsay
It’s twenty years since police detective Alan McAlpine has set foot in Patrickhill Station—and more than twenty years since he fell forever in love with the mute, faceless woman he called Anna as she lay dying in Glasgow’s Western Infirmary. Daily he’d watched over her, and they had begun to communicate with each other, she by moving her wounded fingers. Her fingers could not tell the sad, unseasoned police cadet her name, however, or name for him the father of her newborn baby girl or identify the assailants who had flung the acid in her once incomparably beautiful face. Or tell him how she’d smuggled a cache of uncut diamonds into Scotland.
Now McAlpine is back in Patrickhill, where he’s been summoned to head up the investigation of a disturbing murder case. Two women—their arms outstretched, their legs together and feet crossed at the ankle—have already died at the hands of a man the press has tagged the Crucifixion Killer.
With crimes in the present continually detouring both McAlpine and the elusive killer he pursues into an unredeemed past, the mystery in this steely, piercing psychological thriller is as gripping as its twists are surprising. And absolution proves to be extreme.

What I am reading now:
One Last Lie By: Rob Kaufman
“One Last Lie in a word is awesome, an incredible psychological thriller that has readers hanging on the edge during the explosive and thrilling final pages.”
One Evil Woman. Two Trusting Men. Three Lives Destroyed.
Angela is beautiful and charismatic on the outside. But on the inside, evil rages and she’s determined to get anyone and anything she wants. And now with her biological clock ticking, she seduces her old friend Philip, and his partner Jonathan, into having a child with her through artificial insemination.
As time passes, Angela’s mask of deceit slips away and she leads the fathers-to-be on a relentless, agonizing journey filled with lies, anguish and finally tragedy that forever changes the lives of everyone involved.
If you enjoy books like The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl and classics like Fatal Attraction and Misery, you’ll love this gripping thriller of fiction, a novel of pure suspense that will keep you on the edge… even weeks after turning the final page.
