Waiting on Wednesday 02/12/20

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

The Split by Sharon Bolton (April 28, 2020 by Minotaur Books)

I’ve been featuring a lot of fantasy/sci-fi lately, so I think it’s time for another thriller pick! Or should I say chiller pick? It’s no secret that I love stories that take place in icy, remote settings and I don’t think it gets icier or more remote than a lonely island in the Antarctic. I think that’s why I love the UK cover so much, which I’ve decided to showcase here alongside the US edition (left), because it’s just so intense.

“Tense, gripping and with a twist you won’t see coming, Sharon Bolton is back in an explosive new standalone thriller about a woman on the run in The Split.

No matter how far you run, some secrets will always catch up with you…

The remote Antarctic island of South Georgia is about to send off its last boat of the summer – which signifies safety to resident glaciologist Felicity Lloyd.

Felicity lives in fear – fear that her ex-husband Freddie will find her, even out here. She took a job on this isolated island to hide from him, but now that he’s out of prison, having served a term for murder, she knows he won’t give up until he finds her.

But a doctor delving into the background of Felicity and Freddie’s relationship, back in Cambridge, learns that Felicity has been on the edge for a long time. Heading to South Georgia himself to try and get to her first is the only way he can think of to help her.”

  1. “He loves her. He’ll find her.” Wow, such an emotionally charged statement – uplifting and romantic or terrifying and creepy, depending on the context!


  2. I also love cold, dark settings, and the description sounds great. But when I saw the setting was South Georgia island that also interested the photographer in me, as that’s been a very popular photographic destination (sort of like Iceland has become). And I do love that UK cover. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, added to my TBR.
