A Lovely Way to Burn by Louise Welsh

Hello all - you may be aware of this book already but the author was interviewed on radio 4 this morning on Womans Hour. It's the first in a trilogy of books set in the very near future. Reviews are excellent.

A pandemic called 'The Sweats' is sweeping the globe. London is a city in crisis. Hospitals begin to fill with the dead and dying, but Stevie Flint is convinced that the sudden death of her boyfriend Dr Simon Sharkey was not from natural causes. As roads out of London become gridlocked with people fleeing infection, Stevie's search for Simon's killers takes her in the opposite direction, into the depths of the dying city and a race with death.

A Lovely Way to Burn is the first outbreak in the Plague Times trilogy. Chilling, tense and completely compelling, it's Louise Welsh writing at the height of her powers.

Re: A Lovely Way to Burn by Louise Welsh

It seems expensive 380 pages for $10.22 on kindle. Has any one here read it. Can they recommend?

Re: A Lovely Way to Burn by Louise Welsh

I've not read it yet, but it does sound a bit Survivor-ee

Re: A Lovely Way to Burn by Louise Welsh

It's £6.49 on Amazon UK on Kindle. Still quite expensive. Leave it a while?

I haven't read it so ...

Re: A Lovely Way to Burn by Louise Welsh

It is available from my local (Suffolk) library, tenth in line at the moment!
