In addition to Spike of Swift River, which was my last week Friday Forgotten Book, I read Amazing Fantastic Incredible: A Marvelous Memoir by Stan Lee and Peter David. The book covers the same ground as Excelsior! The Amazing Life of Stan Lee also by Lee and David, but this time in a graphic novel format. It was just okay.
Now I’m reading A Perfect Match by Jill McGowan, which is the first in the Detective Inspector Lloyd and Sergeant Judy Hill series. The second book in the series was a recent FFB, and sounded intriguing enough for me to find this one. I’m not far enough along to know if I’ll like it.
I’m continuing to read short stories, mostly from The Big Book of Christmas Mystery Stories. After all, ’tis the season.
Barbara’s finished A Fear of Dark Water by Craig Russell. Now she’s started The Dark by V. M. Giambanco. Barbara liked the author’s first book, The Gift of Darkness, which she tried after reading a review (probably in Mystery Scene). The Dark is the second in the series featuring Detective Alice Madison, who works in the Homicide Unit of the Seattle Police Department. A third book in the series, Blood and Bone, is soon to be published.
Hope you are all reading and enjoying the run-up to the holidays!
