 ‘The Hypnotist’ by Lars Kepler

I hate to say it but..........if you loved Stieg Larsson, you’ll love this book. It has been hard to find anything that stands up to that brilliant trilogy, but this exciting novel can stand perfectly well on its own merits! The hypnotist of the story is Erik Maria Bark, retired and unwilling to be a part of this therapy any longer due to a disturbing experience 10 years earlier, he is persuaded to help a boy, a sole survivor and witness to the slaughter of his family and the disturbing carnage left behind. What he hears and knows, then places his family in danger. There is no tiptoeing through this book, it has extreme violence and nerve-racking scenes, it is fast paced with no time to relax – you really may need a change of underwear. A brilliant new fashioned psychological thriller.

Book Suggestion

 

Through the Wall

written by Anna Bligh

An uplifting memoir of resilience and strength from ex-Premier of Queensland, Anna Bligh.

Anna Bligh knows something about hard knocks and high walls. She was raised by a single mother in the working class Gold Coast, a young girl with a soon-to-be-estranged dad who struggled with alcoholism. She spent over 17 years in the rough and tumble of the Queensland Parliament (seven of them as either Deputy Premier or Premier) and she was the first woman to be elected Premier of an Australian State in her own right. In 2011, she led Queensland through the devastation of Australia's largest natural disasters. Her Party then lost the 2012 State election and Anna stepped down to start a new life, only to find herself diagnosed with cancer.

Writing with her trademark honesty, warmth and humour about the challenges that public and private life have thrown her, Anna reflects candidly - as a wife, mother, daughter, friend and political leader - on the lessons of leadership, resilience, community and family. 'It is not my bruises and scratches that I want others to see,' she writes in this inspiring, unflinching and engaging memoir about breaking through walls and overcoming obstacles, 'I want them to see the hole in the wall.'
