From The Review Pile (4) / Throwback Thursday

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday. The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review. (or any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

I am showcasing All He Saw Was The Girl by Peter Leonard. I received it in April for a book tour by Partner in Crime Tours

Book Blurb:

McCabe and Chip, two American exchange students, are about to become embroiled with a violent street gang, a beautiful Italian girl, and a flawed kidnapping plan.

Sharon Vanelli’s affair with Joey Palermo, a Mafia enforcer, is about to be discovered by her husband, Ray, a secret service agent.

Brilliantly plotted and shot through with wry humor, All He Saw Was The Girl sees these two narratives collide in the backstreets of Italy’s oldest city.

I have read  Voices of the Dead by Peter Leonard and really liked it. Going by that I think, All He Saw Was The Girl  is going to be good novel too.

Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books!

It’s the nature of book blogging to focus mainly on new releases, but there are thousands of great books out there that haven’t seen the “New Releases” shelf in years. We hope to be able to bring attention to some older titles that may not be at the top of the current bestseller list, but still deserve a spot in your To-Be-Read pile.

Here I am showcasing a forgotten writer.  His has 60 novels to his credit. His novels are now collecters' item! I own 5 and feel so good.

George Warwick Deeping (1877–1950) was one prolific English novelist and short story writer. His most famous novel is Sorrell and Son (1925). He was born in Essex into a family of doctors. He studied in Trinity College and finished his medical studies at the Middleton Hospital. After attaining success as a writer, Deeping gave up his job as a doctor and become a full-time writer. He wrote Historical Romances in his initial years of writing.

Deeping was a master storyteller. His words hold interest. He could get into the heart of matter. He seems to have been forgotten as of now. He is one author who needs to be re-discovered. His works need to be widely read.

Many of his works can be found for free in Read Any Book. Do check him out!!
