    The turning tide is a complex crime thriller that follows erykah, who has a penchant for unwise decisions where men are concerned, through a rabbit hole of consequences leading to a dramatic and heart-pounding conclusion.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Erykah — who has tried to overcome a media-circus past by burying herself in a traditional life — finally decides to let go of her loveless marriage and pursue happiness with her girlfriend and rowing partner until her husband reveals he's won $20 million in the lottery.

    At first i wasn't sure if i liked the protagonist, she did not seem very sympathetic.

    Readers of brooke magnanti's previous work will be unsurprised by the sharp observational humour on display here, and there are some pointed observations about what it's like to have been at the centre of a media furore (her main character, erykah, spends her life dreading the digging up of her youthful involvement with a murderous boyfriend), but these are carefully couched within a highly intricate, page-turning plot, starting with the discovery of a very decomposed corpse in the highlands, moving through political shenanigans set in post-indyref scotland, and peopled with intriguing characters like a moustachioed ex-army officer who's become the figurehead for a sort of scottish ukip, a grumpy scottish pol who would rather spend her valuable time in westminster than with her constituents, a missing geologist whose work on scottish mineral deposits may have led to his demise, a london radio talkshow host whose programme seems to be somehow involved with this murderous conspiracy, and - most of all - the very relatable protagonist, erykah, who starts out as a middle-aged woman trapped in a loveless marriage but by the end of the book has seen and done things she never would have believed possible.

    Stay for the trenchant dissection of the media and political machine.
