Hi all,

So, just as I’m sinking my teeth into my new novel, the ‘flu arrives in the Thomas household. Not a pretty sight! However, having battled manfully *cough* through it (and using the time to catch up on some well overdue reading), I was ready to tackle a new chapter today… and then the copy edits for my previous novel arrived. Maybe tomorrow, then…

Right, back to the poll. Check out this week’s winner (yes, there is a clear winner this week!)

Here’s the result of last week’s Poll:

Caimh McDonnell nails the top spot again – this time with his second novel in the Dublin Trilogy; The Day That Never Comes.

Sarah Pinborough’s Behind Her Eyes snatches the runner up spot (the second time this novel has appeared on the podium, too!)

Here’s this week’s Poll:


More About This Week’s Winner:

The Day That Never Comes – Caimh McDonnell

the-day-that-never-comesRemember those people that destroyed the economy and then cruised off on their yachts? Well guess what – someone is killing them.
Dublin is in the middle of a heat wave and tempers are running high. The Celtic Tiger is well and truly dead, activists have taken over the headquarters of a failed bank, the trial of three unscrupulous property developers teeters on the brink of collapse, and in the midst of all this, along comes a mysterious organisation hell-bent on exacting bloody vengeance in the name of the little guy.
Paul Mulchrone doesn’t care about any of this; he has problems of his own. His newly established detective agency is about to be DOA. One of his partners won’t talk to him for very good reasons and the other has seemingly disappeared off the face of the earth for no reason at all. Can he hold it together long enough to figure out what Bunny McGarry’s colourful past has to do with his present absence?
When the law and justice no longer mean the same thing, on which side will you stand?
The Day That Never Comes is the second book in Caimh McDonnell’s Dublin trilogy, which melds fast-paced action with a distinctly Irish acerbic wit.

*Every week I extract all the novel titles from my ‘Round Up Blog‘ and enter them into a poll. If a novel is not on the list it is because it didn’t appear in my blog during the week stated at the top of the poll. I’d love to know which novel (not review) was your favourite. If you haven’t read any of them, pick the one you would choose to read instead.
