|Pick of the Month July 2012|
I caught up with some favourite authors too - Agatha Christie, Peter Lovesey, Michael Stanley, Ian Rankin, Donna Leon, Aline Templeton, and Elly Griffiths. Regretfully no Australian authors, again, But I'm rectifying that now by reading Michael Robotham's latest.
- 5.0, COP TO CORPSE, Peter Lovesey - library book
- 4.4, MRS McGINTY'S DEAD, Agatha Christie
- 5.0, DEATH OF THE MANTIS, Michael Stanley - Kindle
- 4.5, THE THIEF, Fuminori Nakamura - audio book- translated
- 4.5, A BALI CONSPIRACY MOST FOUL, Shamini Flint - audio book
- 4.1 THE KILLINGS ON JUBILEE TERRACE, Robert Barnard - audio book
- 4.3, ACCIDENTS WAITING TO HAPPEN, Simon Wood - kindle
- 4.6, THE MIND'S EYE, Hakan Nesser - library book- translated
- 4.7, THE IMPOSSIBLE DEAD, Ian Rankin - Library book
- 4.4, QUIETLY IN THEIR SLEEP, Donna Leon - Kindle
- 4.0, BODY ON THE STAGE, Bev Robitai - Kindle- New Zealand author
- 4.5, A ROOM FULL OF BONES, Elly Griffiths - audio book
- 4.2, THEY CAME TO BAGHDAD, Agatha Christie - Kindle
- 4.6, LAMB TO THE SLAUGHTER, Aline Templeton - library book
Both are police procedurals but widely separated by setting but the main detectives have a lot in common including their size.
COP TO CORPSE is Peter Lovesey's latest, and I truly think with this one that it doesn't matter if you haven't read the earlier ones, but you'll want to afterwards.
DEATH OF THE MANTIS is #2 in the Kubu series and you really would be advised to read #1 first.
Both are terrific reads.
