Though attending the mystery con took reading time away, I finishedthe second in Brodrick’s Father Anselm series featuring a barrister turned monk after a disastrous failure in court. Here he finds himself at the center of a mystery involving family, the long tentacles of deception and the relief found in retribution.
Though there is a surfeit of mysteries from LCC, there were things waiting at the library upon our return, and so I’m tackling those first. All of them, as it turns out, are science fiction / fantasy. I’m currently reading Old Venus, a short story collection edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozos.
Barbara was reading Firewall by Henning Mankell, a Kurt Wallender mystery, and her first try on this author. However, it was due back to the library before she finished and wasn’t available for renewal. After the con, she got it as an ebook and finished it in our Kindle for the Mac application. She liked it and will read another.
She got back to, and finished reading The Skeleton Road by Val McDermid, which also had to go back to the library before she was finished, and is now back. She reads most McDermid’s as released, unless they are short stories. Now another library book has popped up and she has started it.
