My name is Danielle, I’ve been blogging almost two years and I started because I was reading all these incredible books but those around me were not, so the blog was started as a way to find like minded people who I could talk books, recommend books and find books with. My favourite book genre is thriller, but I do love a rom-com or a fantasy novel. I blog at The Reading Closet.
Mary Picken reviews books at her blog, Live and Deadly (liveanddeadly.net). She reads mainly crime interspersed with literary and historical fiction. A former Head of Communications with the BBC, Mary began book-blogging at the end of 2014 and now has over 4,000 blog followers. She regularly undertakes blog tours, attends book festivals and is often to be found swooning over books and author stalking on social media.
A Song of Isolation by Michael J Malone
Film star Amelie Hart is the darling of the silver screen, appearing on the front pages of every newspaper. But at the peak of her fame she throws it all away for a regular guy with an ordinary job. The gossip columns are aghast: what happened to the woman who turned heads wherever she went?
Any hope the furore will die down are crushed when Amelie’s boyfriend Dave is arrested on charges of child sexual abuse. Dave strongly asserts his innocence, and when Amelie refuses to denounce him, the press witch hunt quickly turns into physical violence, and she has to flee the country.
While Dave is locked up with the most depraved men in the country and Amelie is hiding on the continent, Damaris, the victim at the centre of the story, is isolated – a child trying to make sense of an adult world.
Breathtakingly brutal, dark and immensely moving, A Song of Isolation looks beneath the magpie glimmer of celebrity to uncover a sinister world dominated by greed and lies, and the unfathomable destruction of innocent lives … in an instant.
