Not a thing, must be a Summer lull.
As mentioned last time, I went on a Sherlock Holmes pastiche run, reading The Will of the Dead by George Mann, The Stuff of Nightmares and The Gods of War both by James Lovegrove. I followed that up with a book that came in last week, Encounters with Sherlock Holmes edited by George Mann, a short story collection.
I read two books, The Web of Murder by Harry Whittington and The Kiss-Off by Douglas Heyes, a Steve Mallory novel, for next week’s July 11th special Friday Forgotten Book post on the femme fatale, though I’m not sure either one is a good fit for that subject, and sad to say I wasn’t wild about either one. Also, they have both already been reviewed, I come to realize, for FFB in the past. Unless I find something else by tomorrow, it’ll be one of those.
Barbara finished Norwegian By Night by Derek Miller, which was strongly recommended by Todd Mason. She also read Living Proof, a Charlie Resnick Novel by John Harvey. She has now started Evil in All Its Disguises by Hilary Davidson, another book we picked up at Left Coast Crime.
What new books did you get, and what have you been reading?
