A Perfect Flood by Luke Geraghty
British aid worker Eve Cavill has been kidnapped in Venezuela. Tortured within an inch of her life, Eve's mind drifts to the days and weeks before her capture - from the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf to quake-stricken Haiti and a love she's tried desperately to escape. For Eve hides a terrible secret. One that may yet prove her salvation...or her ruining.
A gritty twentysomething novel with a slick comic edge, A Perfect Flood is an intimate portrayal of a woman's psyche forced to the brink.
Apolo Drakuvich by G.W. Jefferies
Apolo Drakuvich captures the life of a petty criminal on a strange ride ranging from bizarre and senseless to utterly tragic. Revolving around parasitic journalism, media and government corruption, and a ruthless, conniving judge who milks the citizens out of millions of dollars, Apolo Drakuvich can be described as a compilation of untamed and sheer madness--captivating the readers' attention from beginning to end. With its raw descriptions, penetrating dialogue and crisp writing, this book is like no other.
Within all the madness that so epitomizes the life of Apolo, G.W. Jeffries presents a life of regret in epic proportions. Sitting in a jail cell, Apolo reflects, "One thing is for sure, I let it all slip away...so many opportunities lost." Apolo sadly examines the events and decisions of his life, and the paths he took and should have taken. Apolo seeks peace of mind and justice, but flashbacks of his past continuously haunt him; moreover, he seems to be victimized by a corrupt justice system everywhere he goes. As an offender, Apolo discusses pertinent issues of today's society, where it is next to impossible for offenders to live normal lives, despite the desire to do so. Essentially, law enforcement and authorities seem to systematically destroy the offender by placing constraints on the offender such as restrictions on where to live, GPS monitoring, registering as offenders on websites, and more.
