Matt Bendoris. Skyhorse, $24.99 (312p) ISBN 978-1-5107-2578-2
In this cleverly imagined thriller from Scottish author Bendoris (DM for Murder), the normal world of Glasgow nurse Kelly Carter collides with the world of conspiracies, cover-ups, and deadly agents inhabited by terminal patient Mad Malky Monahan. Twenty years after Monahan engineered the car crash that killed Princess Diana in 1997, he hints to Carter that he knows how it happened and that he has a key piece of evidence. When a fire destroys the abandoned garage hiding that evidence, Carter realizes her fate is inextricably bound to Monahan’s. Meanwhile, sarcastic Connor “Elvis” Presley and food-loving April Lavender, who work for the declining Daily Chronicle’s special investigations desk, sniff a big story as Monahan tries to keep the sensitive information on public figures from all those who want it. Monahan proves amazingly resilient for someone supposedly dying, and Carter, a divorced mother of two, shows how tough she can be under pressure. Bendoris’s amusing send-up of conspiracy theories will resonate with many readers. (Sept.)
