CBC Books reached out to Canadian writers for the books they recommend during uncertain times.
Catherine McKenzie is a bestselling thriller writer whose next book is You Can't Catch Me. The novel follows a disgraced journalist named Jessica Williams who forms a fast bond with a stranger also named Jessica Williams. Not long after, Jessica discovers that "Jessica Two" has stolen all her money and taken off.
McKenzie recommends reading the novel The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton.
"The book I'm recommending right now is The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. It's a big, complex murder mystery where the person who has to solve a murder has eight days to do so. The catch? He wakes up in a different body each day.
The world building and characters are fantastic here and it transported me for days.
"The world building and characters are fantastic here and it transported me for days. Agatha Christie, CLUE and magical realism all mixed into one superb package!"
