One of the biggest mysteries on Amazon isn’t a book. It’s why some good books are almost completely ignored. I found another example. This time, two non-fiction titles by author Danny Vendramini. In each book, the author has put forward a sensational premise about a (literally) world-changing subject and… crickets. With ideas so controversial he’s been denounced as a new Erich von Daniken, I’d expect to see hundreds of reviews, not twenty-seven and zero respectively. Yes, ZERO reviews of a book that proposes a hidden evolutionary process. What the heck?

I spotted Saints & Strangers in the Amazon ‘also-bought’ list for Screw Friendship. The title was released in July and only had one review, so it fit one of my review criteria. I then read the first couple of pages and it was clearly professionally written. Sold!

Mother, Delirious is a first novel by fellow Scot, Donna Harrower. I discovered the book when the writer followed me on Twitter and I was quickly sucked into a tightly woven and rewarding medical crime thriller.
