What (am I currently reading)?
I am currently reading the thriller Whistleblower by Owen Mullen. Re-reading to be exact, as it was previously published as Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead. This new version is being published by Boldwood Books on 12 August 2021, and is the 3rd book in the Charlie Cameron series – though all can be read as stand alone.

WHEN A MEDICAL WHISTLEBLOWER GOES MISSING, PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR CHARLIE CAMERON AGREES TO TAKE ON THE CASE.
Gavin Law exposed a tragic case of medical malpractice but now he’s missing. It’s just another case for Glasgow PI, Charlie Cameron, until he comes to believe Law was murdered.
Did the disgraced surgeon abandon his sacred oath to become a killer? Or did the hospital itself have Law permanently silenced? As Charlie digs deeper, he discovers just how bad the world of medicine could be for his health.
Across the city, gangster Sean Rafferty is preparing to exploit the corrupt city council through a multi-million-pound leisure development known as Riverside. The project will be good for Glasgow. But not everybody is keen to work with Rafferty. With more than money at stake, Sean will do anything to get his way. So, when Charlie’s investigation gets tangled up with Sean’s business, someone’s going to need a doctor…or an undertaker.
Owen Mullen is a best-selling author of psychological and gangland thrillers. His fast-paced, twist-aplenty stories are perfect for all fans of Robert Galbraith, Ian Rankin and Ann Cleeves.
This book was previously published as Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead.

While (I am reading it)
Its steamy hot here in Austria – with frequent evening thunderstorms and heavy rain. Therefore most of my walking is taking place high up the mountains where it is a little cooler. Cows on the path are a hazard for walkers, but even more so for cyclists, as this photo shows.
All the best, Emma
