review of The Postscript Murders by Elly Griffiths (coming in the US on March 2, 2021)

I would have loved to have seen more of Peggy… The Postscript Murders is the second in Elly Griffiths’ new series with Detective Sergeant Harbinder Kaur as the protagonist – although in this enjoyable read, the focus is actually just as much on an unlikely trio of amateur sleuths as it is on DS Kaur.  …

Review of Serpentine by Jonathan Kellerman (coming Feb 2, 2021)

A smooth as silk mystery that kept me reading late into the night… I am not fond of psychological thrillers.   And so, having read somewhere that Jonathan Kellerman’s main character in his main series is a psychologist, Alex Delaware, I just sort of wrote the series off, assuming that these were psychological thrillers.   And you …

The Graveyard of the Hesperides by Lindsey Davis is $2.99 today (March 1, 2021) in the US.

The Graveyard of the Hesperides is the fourth in Lindsey Davis’ spin-off Flavia Albia series, featuring Falco’s adopted daughter as the protagonist. I’ve quite liked the spin-off, maybe even a bit more than the original Falco series. Hmmmm…hard to say…probably depends on my mood at the time. In any case, Graveyard has dropped to $2.99 …
