Wishlist Wednesday #11


Welcome to my eleventh Wishlist Wednesday post for the awesome blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper 

This week my WW book is The Ninth Life of Louis Drax by Liz Jensen

Nine-year-old Louis Drax is a problem child: bright, precocious, deceitful, and dangerously, disturbingly, accident prone. When he falls off a cliff into a ravine, the accident seems almost predestined.

Louis miraculously survives - but the family has been shattered. Louis' father has vanished, his mother is paralysed by shock, and Louis lies in a deep coma from which he may never emerge.

In a clinic in Provence, Dr Pascal Dannachet tries to coax Louis back to consciousness. But the boy defies medical logic, startling Dannachet out of his safe preconceptions, and drawing him inexorably into the dark heart of Louis' buried world. Only Louis holds the key to the mystery surrounding his fall - and he can't communicate. Or can he?

It's been ages since I read a decent psychological thriller and this one sounds great. It was on on Amazon Daily Deal this week and I missed it! I hope I can pick it up sometime but wish I'd managed to get it when it was on offer.
