– ‘The Magic of Wor(l)ds’ blog is a hobby, reviews and other bookish stuff on this site are done for free. –
Today I’m on the ‘Overturned’ blogtour, organized by R&R Book Tours.
To promote this book I have some ‘basic’ information.
About the Author :
Emily is a native of Boulder, Colorado, currently living in Glasgow, working as a freelance writer. She did a degree in psychology from Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, before she moved to the UK for more degrees, completing an MA in the history of science at Durham University and then a PhD in historical geography from the University of Glasgow. Her PhD examined the history of madness and of psychiatric provision in the Scottish Highlands and Islands. After a couple years spent discovering that postdocs in history were rarer than wolves in Scotland and working as a freelance horse trainer, she went back to uni for an MSc in journalism at Strathclyde University. She published her first novel, In the Canyons of Shadows and Light, in 2020.
When not writing, she can be found riding her horses, paddling a kayak on lochs and rivers, or somewhere on a mountain.

Alex Boswell, a young New York City detective, joins an elite Manhattan homicide squad in the late-1980s, the dawn of the crack cocaine epidemic that would see the tragedy of addiction and violence touching every corner of the city, destroying thousands of lives. As a young detective facing entrenched power structures and a grinding treadmill of violence and death, Alex finds himself driven into making unconscionable choices that will haunt him forever.
Two decades later, Alex must face his past when courts overturn the wrongful convictions of people he’d arrested, and a federal grand jury opens an investigation into police misconduct and abuses of power.
A soaring epic of life and death, power, injustice, and at its heart, humanity, unfolding on the New York City streets.
