I review Donato Carrisi's The Whisperer, tr. Shaun Whiteside which has won several prizes in Italy;

Maxine Clarke reviews Jacques Chessex's A Jew Must Die, tr. W Donald Wilson published by Bitter Lemon Press ;

Michelle Peckham reviews Grant McKenzie's debut novel: Switch, a thriller set in the US;

What a good selection of reviews - and a very warm welcome to Lizzie Hayes as a EC reviewer. I am glad to read that there is still some high life in Greece ;-)
