March’s Book of the Month is THE HAT by Georgie Logan.
Callie Lewis, AKA Calista Constantinou, once a young thief and hustler, she became a ruthless businesswoman; pulling her firm up from the gutter of the criminal world and into the equally dirty domain of legitimate business. Now self-exiled on a small Greek Island, Callie lives a relatively simple and happy life, yet is haunted by her grief, loneliness and guilt that caused her to flee London forever.
Eddie Melane, formerly South London’s most notorious thief, funny, handsome and dangerous: a local hero. Settling down with the wrong woman and going straight were only the start of his problems. Then with a tragic event leaving him badly scarred, lonely and a broken man, Eddie now counts the days until he can escape his miserable life.
Renos Markides fled Cyprus as a boy when the Turkish invaded and arrived in London with nothing. A complex character, brutal and revered; he is now North London’s biggest villain. Known to be fair, Renos commands absolute loyalty from his men and operates on the principle of an ‘Eye for an Eye’.
Three People fighting their own personal demons and trapped in lives they never wanted are brought together by fate and murder. Whilst on their quest for vengeance they will confront the past that fate has dealt them, as well as dark secrets and the heartache of long forgotten love. Together they will redefine the very meaning of revenge, in THE HAT.
THE HAT is a British crime novel: a story of revenge, love and loss. The novel is split between life in a quiet, peaceful Greek village on an anonymous island and the completely contrasting dangerous streets of South London. The many vivid and varied characters of THE HAT take the reader on a gripping and absorbing journey spanning over 40 years and ending with a carefully cultivated climax that completely turns the concept of the revenge novel on its head.
The book is available in paperback and on kindle from Amazon worldwide.
