Getting the new month started.

Feb. 1, 2017, 7:01pm

Almost finished His Last Bow, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Will probably finish tomorrow.

Feb. 2, 2017, 2:06pm

I finished a reread via audio of Ngaio Marsh's Death at the Bar -- I had totally forgotten who the culprit was!

Feb. 2, 2017, 2:50pm

Reading Surrogate Thief by Archer Mayor a Joe Gunther series.

Feb. 3, 2017, 9:52am

Another reread for me is the first Appleby mystery - Death at the President's Lodging

Feb. 4, 2017, 2:33pm

Don't You Cry by Mary Kubica. Suspenseful but also predictable, a Harlequin romance version of a thriller, but one of my guilty pleasures.

Feb. 4, 2017, 3:14pm

Just started From Doon with Death yesterday. It's weird that most of the Wexford books I've ignored while I've read most of her stand alone books, both as Rendell and as Vine.

Now reading and enjoying The Coroner's Lunch by Colin Cotterill.

I need to thank somebody on LT for the good suggestion!

Feb. 5, 2017, 2:25pm

I read a really good thriller today; The Girl Before by JP Delaney

Feb. 5, 2017, 11:14pm

Feb. 9, 2017, 8:52am

I'm reading Identity, Ingrid Thoft's second Fina Ludlow mystery.

Sort of a crime story combined with the mysteries of familes, but a very good read: The Sleepwalker by Chris Bohjalian

Feb. 10, 2017, 8:18pm

I finished Identity, which I can't find in the long touchstone list. Pretty enjoyable, although a couple of the characters are kinda thin. I'm re-skimming Her Royal Spyness for my book club.

Feb. 10, 2017, 8:26pm

>14 Jim53:
Ingrid Thoft's Identity usually pulls it easily in such cases :)

Feb. 11, 2017, 11:45am

I am reading a Lew Archer book - The Wycherly Woman...

Feb. 11, 2017, 5:25pm

>15 AnnieMod: Thanks for the tip, Annie!

I think this book falls into the crime category, as the subject matter is human trafficking/sex slavery. The Girl Before by Rena Olsen. I know this crime exists, but somehow the characters in this book didn't draw me in or become believable to me.

Feb. 12, 2017, 8:15pm

Thin Air by Ann Cleeves. The sixth in her Shetland series.

Feb. 13, 2017, 11:01am

Finished Indigo Slam for the second time in 10 years - still good and enjoyable.

Feb. 13, 2017, 4:57pm

About to start The Big Clock.

Feb. 14, 2017, 5:19pm

Raiding the stockpile of Gideon novels by JJ Marric: Gideon's Week is my current bus book.

Bearbeitet: Feb. 15, 2017, 4:28pm

Still sick and still plowing through my pile of crime fiction books from the local library:
Ghost Girl by Lesley Thomson, which I quite liked
Fatal Act by Leigh Russell which was sort of ho-hum
Playing with Bones by Kate Ellis which was OK, but not outstanding.

Feb. 16, 2017, 2:00pm

My mysteries/crime for February so far have been The Victoria Vanishes, The Brutal Telling, and I'm currently reading The Third Man by Graham Greene.

Feb. 16, 2017, 9:33pm

I've read the first two books in Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver series, Grey Mask and The Case Is Closed. Enjoyable.

Feb. 17, 2017, 8:44am

Started Dust by Martha Grimes. The investigations are OK, but I love the eccentric and feisty children she includes in her storylines.

Feb. 17, 2017, 8:35pm

Moving on to The Secret Place, by Tana French.

Feb. 18, 2017, 12:19pm

Finished the second in this trilogy last night: The Lewis Man by Peter May. Really good.

Feb. 19, 2017, 2:46pm

Just finished The Drifter by Nick Petrie. This is his first novel and first in a series. I really enjoyed this book and plan to follow the series.

Feb. 19, 2017, 2:49pm

Just found out that The Drifter goes to a different author but don't know how to fix it. If you click on Nick Petrie it goes to the correct book.

Feb. 19, 2017, 3:45pm

Just finished The Nature of the Beast by Louise Penny. This finishes the first 10 of the Chief Inspector Gamache series that I have read in a row. A little cozier than my usual taste, but that I read them in a row is evidence of how enjoyable I found them. I liked the recurring characters and the Three Pines setting (though for a small village out in the middle of nowhere the murder rate is exceptionally high).

Feb. 19, 2017, 4:18pm

>33 jwrudn: It's a wonder there's anyone left alive in Three Pines.

Feb. 19, 2017, 9:10pm

I finished Snowblind and was underwhelmed.

Feb. 19, 2017, 11:56pm

I just finished the rather satisfying conclusion to the Camille Verhoeven trilogy from Pierre Lemaitre. Quite brutal but very gripping series of books.

Feb. 21, 2017, 1:44pm

Change of time and pace--1920's vaudeville is the backdrop for The Impersonator

Bearbeitet: Feb. 21, 2017, 1:49pm

I just finished I Will Have Vengeance, a good start to a series featuring a detective who gets communicative visions of murdered people.

Now I'm reading Six Wakes, featuring six clones in outer space who have to figure out who killed their prior bodies.

Feb. 22, 2017, 4:00pm

Reading Loyalty by Ingrid Thoft. Another new author for me. Really enjoying.

Feb. 22, 2017, 4:27pm

Sight Unseen by Robert Goddard. He's fab.

Feb. 22, 2017, 9:35pm

>39 cindysprocket: I've read the first two of those and enjoyed them. Rumor has it that the next two are better, so I'll be getting to them soon.

Feb. 23, 2017, 2:46pm

Finishing Nemesis By Catherine Coulter, Never Go Back By Lee Child and Ice Cold By Tess Gerritsen

Feb. 26, 2017, 6:19pm

I finished A Quiet Belief in Angels -- not my usual preferred style but very atmospheric.
