I enjoyed both books a lot, though of the two, I liked Northwest Angle a little better. Krueger really is a very, very good writer, and portrayal of character and the sense of place he gives in this series are outstanding. Though tempted to go on to the next in the series, I decided to take a break for some other reading.
First was The Reader – Sea of Ink and Gold by Traci Chee, the first in a new YA fantasy series. I’d seen a couple of good reviews, and thought I’d try it. I made it to about 30 pages before I gave it up and sent it back to the library. It just wasn’t working for me.
Looking about, I realized I had a short story collection I needed to finish (tune in next Friday for that). Now I’ve started Wycliff and the Three-Toed Pussy, by W.J. Burley. Published in 1968, it’s the first in the series. Last October, I read another of the Wycliffe books, Wycliffe and the Quiet Virgin, liked it, and thought it time to try another.
Barbara finished The Black Country, by Alex Grecian, the second book in the Scotland Yard Murder Squad series, about early days of Scotland Yard. She then read the latest Krueger, Manitou Canyon. She raced through it and said she liked it a LOT. Now she’s reading the third Murder Squad book, The Devil’s Workshop. She’ll finish that today and start reading Disclaimer by Renee Knight, which was given a strong recommendation by Deb, a commenter on this and other blogs. Thanks, Deb!
