I’m taking part in the Blogging From A-Z Challenge April 2017 with the theme of books. I’ll be blogging about the books on my Goodreads shelf that I’ve read or want to read.


Today’s letter is X and the book I’ve chosen is XO by Jeffrey Weaver. I must confess that I haven’t actually heard of this book until I went looking for a book beginning with X for this blogging challenge.

Here’s the Goodreads blurb:

18221054Kayleigh Towne is a beautiful and successful singer-songwriter, and Edwin Sharp is her biggest fan. When she replies to one of his fan letters with ‘XO’, Edwin is convinced she loves him, and that her latest hit song ‘Your Shadow’ was written for him. Nothing Kayleigh or her lawyers can say persuades him otherwise. Then the singer gets an anonymous phone call; it’s the first verse of ‘Your Shadow’ playing.

Soon after, one of the crew is horribly murdered. Kayleigh’s friend Kathryn Dance, a special agent with the California Bureau of Investigation, knows that stalking crimes are not one-off occurrences, and, sure enough, more verses of the song are played as warnings of death to follow. With a little help from forensic criminalist Lincolyn Rhyme, Dance must use her kinesics and investigative skills in an attempt to find the killer before more people die.”



What do you think of my choice for the letter X?

Have you read this? What would you have chosen?
