The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell
This story really pulled me in from the beginning. Rose , the narrator of the story begins as a very like able character but cracks slowly begin to appear as the story goes on and it does lead you to wonder just how reliable she is as the narrator. The story set in New York in the 1920's when home brew booze was being illegally sold in clubs and the police were busy trying to arrest those selling it. I really got a feel for that time in history in the city during the reading of this story, it was described very well, crime and glamour were combined here along with gangsters and the police who would try and take them down.. When the mysterious Odelie begins work in the same place as Rose, here begins a flawed friendship that is much too close to obsession, and crime with a little madness . A gripping story !
This book is due for release in June 2013 from lovereading.co.uk and other booksellers.
