Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to be published.
This week mine is Carnival Of Shadows by R.J. Ellory.
Kansas, 1959. A travelling carnival appears overnight in the small
town of Seneca Falls, intriguing the townsfolk with acts of inexplicable
magic and illusion. But when a man's body is discovered beneath the
carousel, with no clue as to his identity, FBI Special Agent Michal
Travis is sent to investigate.
Led by the elusive Edgar Doyle,
the carnival folk range from the enigmatic to the bizarre, but none of
them will give Travis a straight answer to his questions. With each new
turn of the investigation, Doyle and his companions challenge Travis's
once unshakeable faith in solid facts and hard evidence.
As the consequences of what has happened become ever more disturbing,
Travis struggles to open his mind to a truth that defies comprehension.
Will he be able to convince himself that things are not what they seem?
Or will he finally reconcile himself to a new reality - one that
threatens to undermine everything in which he has ever placed his trust?
