HEADS-UP ON THIS PAGE-TURNER

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- When I started in on this, the bold and brash tone of the narrator, Iris Carmichael, took me by surprise. Who is this woman? What a piece of work!

Iris is one half of the Carmichael twins, potential heirs to the Carmichael fortune. Things for Iris are not going to plan and she envies her sister's life with her perfect marriage, and despite being an identical twin, Iris knows she's not built in the same way as her sunny, easygoing sister, Summer.

As rock solid as the other 'Girls' (Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train), this is an absolutely engrossing read - a psych-thriller cocktail with a dash of Jekyll and Hyde and a garnish of Dynasty and Dallas (or Succession and Grand Hotel). A movie is on the way but by then you will know everything. EVERYTHING. Craig Kirchner

RICHELL PRIZE WINNER CHASES DEMONS

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Ruth McIver's novel won the Richell Prize 2018 for emerging writers and although I'm in the early stages of the book, I can see why it won and I've flagged this as one of my picks because the writing is of such quality and depth.

The scenario being laid out is of a young journalist revisiting a traumatic part of her life for an article she's been convinced by her Editor to write. The details surrounding this dark part of her life when, as a teenager, she was in the fold with wayward friends in a fug of drugs, bad sex and heavy metal that ended in a climactic murder that scandalised the nation. The media at the time spun stories of satanism, yet I feel we're on an unsettling journey towards knowing what really happened on that night. Craig Kirchner

(p.s. my brain insists on singing about not shooting the deputy)
