  • A Very Unique Murder Mystery

    I was very much looking forward to reading Heads You Lose , a murder mystery by Lisa Lutz and David Hayward. Lisa Lutz's Spellman series is one of my absolute favorite series of books and I was sure this new book would be wonderful even though it wouldn't feature the Spellman family. I wasn't...

  • Commander Jana Matinova investigates

    I've discovered a new mystery author and series to read! I was reading reviews of forthcoming books and very much liked what I read about The Magician's Accomplice by Michael Genelin. I looked to see if we had the earlier books in the series. We do, but they haven't been checked out and read...

  • The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

    Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s novels feature a very human hero and several cynical malevolent bad guys in sleazy film noir settings. They are ominous and foreboding.

Tommy and Tuppence are totally different than either. They are young and fun and out for adventure. The Secret Adversary (1922) is the book that...

  • Nancy Drew fans--don't miss this one

    After my gory blog about the Trilogy of Terror by Chelsea Cain I began to investigate what other books she had written. Funny I should use the term "investigate". This title Confessions of a Teen Sleuth: a Parody by Chelsea Cain caught my eye and I couldn't believe it was actually about...

  • The Mystery of the Secret Ingredient in the Chocolate Chip Cookies

    David Handler started it all. I had enjoyed his mystery series about the ghostwriter Stewart Hoag and his dog Lulu, so when he started a new mystery series, I was one of the first to read about Mitch Berger, a New York film critic, and Lt. Desiree Mitry, a Connecticut State Trooper. There are now six...

  • Elementary, my dear Peabody ...

    There are some books you read to stay current and informed, and some that you read because you "should" or you "have to". Then there are the books you read simply for the pure enjoyment of reading them. One of my favorite fun reads is the Amelia Peabody mystery series by Elizabeth...

  • The Author gave me... ...breakfast?

    You never know what you might find when you go exploring on authors' websites. Maybe there will be a contest - a chance to win a signed book or other prize.
