This is a light release week and I’ve only managed to find two titles, both mysteries, I consider worth pointing out.
The Thing About Thugs by Tabish Khair is the author’s US debut, and the novel is a unique blend of mystery and history. The story takes place in Victorian London and follows Amir Ali who has emigrated to take part in phrenological research. Ali, a member of the Thugee cult (or so he has told people), must soon prove his innocence as a series of murders occurs in the city.
