I read Tropic of Serpents by Marie Brennan, the second in the Lady Trent series. While I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the first book, I’m looking forward to the third, which will be out in March.
Also this week I read Behind That Curtain by Earl Derr Biggers, the third Charlie Chan novel (published in 1928). I like these novels and was not disappointed in this one.
I’m continuing to read short stories. I’ve already found a couple of the collections to be more enjoyable than the others and am focusing on them, and yet another I stumbled on. I read stories from Lights In the Deep by Brad Torgerson (3), Robots and Magic by Lester Del Rey (2), Grottos of Chinatown by Arthur J. Banks (1) and The Python Pit by George Worts (1).
Barbara has been reading a lot of books by two authors lately, Mark Billingham and Jeffrey Deaver. She just finished Deaver’s The Sleeping Doll. In Deaver’s The Cold Moon, with series protagonist Lincoln Rhyme, a new character was introduced, Special Agent Kathryn Dance. Sleeping Doll is Dance’s first solo outing and she has appeared in subsequent novels.
Barbara is now reading Buried by Mark Billingham and there’s yet another Billingham in the wings.
