The Bedside Table Stack #6

Things are taking a turn for the serious this month on the Bedside Table roundup, with offerings of murder, redemption, mysteries and lies. Perhaps the turning of the seasons is influencing my reading choices as the evenings are slowly darkening? Take a look at the books that will be appearing on the blog over the coming months:

The Son by Jo Nesbo. Having read a few of Nesbo's Harry Hole detective stories I was looking forward to picking up this stand-alone novel. The son of a disgraced police officer has spent twelve years of his life in prison in exchange for all the free drugs he can muster. Sonny has never been interested in living his life but when a confession from another inmate reveals secrets about his fathers suicide, Sonny decides those responsible must pay.

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty. I first discovered Liane Moriarty last year and love her take on family dramas. In this book, three families are connected by an event that one husband caused twenty years ago. His secret will rock his wife to the core and change the lives of his family, and others forever.

Burial Rights by Hannah Kent. Agnes Magnusdottir is awaiting execution over her part in the brutal murder of two men. But as her final days loom closer, Agnes' story is revealed to Toti, a young assistant reverend who is determined to salvage her soul before her death.

The Painted Sky by Alice Campion. I was lucky enough to win a copy of this in a Twitter giveaway but there has been plenty of hype surrounding The Painted Sky that I really am excited to read it. Written by five women under the pseudonym Alice Campion, this Australian novel follows Nina's search for understanding about her father's disappearance. After inheriting her Dad's property and farmhouse, Nina finally has a chance to solve her mystery.

Have you read any of these?
