The excesses of last week are past. This time I have just three things, two of them the result of a post by Evan Lewis [ HERE ] and a book that has been on pre-order. That’s a change for the better, isn’t it? Yes, of course it is. Here are the covers, you know the drill.
And Sudden Death by Cleve Adams [Crestwood Publishing, Prize Mystery Novels #5, 1942 digest-sized paperback, used] – mystery – an astoundingly good copy of this second of Adams’ novels, which originally appeared as Homicide Honolulu Bound.
The End of Everything by Megan Abbott [Little, Brown, 2011 hardcover, new] – mystery – I’ve had this on pre-order for some time, it came on the day the book was published. I’d read an excerpt and was hooked.
Sabotage by Cleve Adams [Penguin 1944 mass market paperback (2nd printing), used] – mystery – a very good copy of this 67 year old Penguin paperback, the first Adams novel featuring Rex McBride.
A note on the Rose City Book Fair, held Friday and Saturday, June 24-25. I didn’t buy a single book! As a matter of fact, I didn’t even go. So there.
