In this episode of the Hope Book Club, Georgia and Simone review their first crime novel of the year, Blood & Ink by Australian author Brett Adams.

In Blood & Ink, a professor finds himself as the main character of one of his student’s crime novels – come to life!

In Blood & Ink, a mild-mannered professor finds himself asking ‘how far will he go to save a life?’

Literature professor Jack Griffen has recently suffered a nervous breakdown. His wife has divorced him, and she and their adult daughter have moved to the USA. Into the void steps exchange student Hieronymus Beck, claiming to be the professor’s greatest fan. But everything changes when Jack finds Hiero’s list. Five sheets of paper. Five ways to commit a murder.

Georgia and Simone jump into just a few of the incredible themes explored in this book and talk about why they think the crime genre is so popular – all without spoilers, of course.
