Last time I had just begun, and now I’m just over a third of the way through, the over 400 page Ten Years Beyond Baker Street, by Cay Van Ash. It’s a book I’ve been intending to read for more than a decade, and I’m still enjoying it.
Other than that, I’ve read just a handful of short stories.
Barbara was reading Hades by Candice Fox, a book she saw in a Mystery Scene review. She gave it up, saying it was too gruesome and dark, even for her. It turned out to be not a mystery, but rather straight horror, not her favorite.
Now she’s trying another she saw reviewed there, The Day She Died by Catriona McPherson, a new author to her. She reports this one is also very, very dark. Though the book won an Anthony in 2015 for best paperback original, she’s not sure if she’ll finish it. For her next book, she’ll certainly be on the lookout for something a little lighter. I’m recommending something by Andrea Camilleri, but we’ll see what she comes up with.
So how about you?
