Review

'After a good many books which seem to be recycling...Aliya Whiteley's Light Reading is refreshingly different.' -- Sunday Telegraph

'Light Reading is an absorbing read, laced with black humour and full of twists...' -- Eurocrime

'Light Reading makes an interesting read and I believe that Aliya Whiteley is one to watch within the crime scene.' -- It's a Crime!

'Pru is a marvellous creation and Aliya Whiteley is a novelist with genuine flair.' -- Tangled Web

'Whiteley's prose is elegant certainly and insinuates itself into the reader's consciousness with a deceptive ease and lightness of touch.' -- Black Static

`A weird page turner with a surprising ending' -- Now magazine

`This dark detective story is full of mystery and intrigue with a truly shocking twist.' -- My Weekly --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Hardcover.

Book Description

Prudence Green is a troubled woman. Stifled by her existence as an RAF wife, she’s dying for a bit of excitement. When one of the other women on the base commits suicide (having discovered that her husband is having an affair with a male comrade in Iraq), Pru and her best friend Lena are prompted to set off on a memorably surreal journey – a criminal investigation, a search for love and an exploration of Pru’s own dark past. The discontented pair escape the base and arrive in a blighted seaside town, Allcombe, determined to find out the truth behind the supposed suicide of one-time TV star Crystal Tynee. But as they explore the lawless town, Pru and Lena find that Allcombe hides more than one hideous secret. Light Reading is a wickedly clever detective story and a pitch-black mystery, seething with grotesque and unforgettable characters, and concluding with a twist that will leave you breathless. ‘Full of mystery and intrigue with a truly shocking twist’ My Weekly
