I plan to add the title of the second book to my OverDrive wish list
in the future. The Aussie narrator brings the tale to life for me.

Sampled the first few chapters of An Instance of the Fingerpost last night. I am intrigued.

I have just completed The Templars Last Secret by Martin Walker , his last book about Chief of Police Bruno of St Denis in the Dordogne. I learned quite a lot about the ancient cave paintings in the region and there was a good plot involving international terrorists descending on the town. Excellent as always.

Am into The Viking Funeral by the late Stephen J. Cannell. It's ok. Jargon-y and info dump-y. A bit too inside-baseball. Like see how much I know about how the police work? See my research. Trying to get past it.

Funny how everyone has her preferences. I can’t stand Scott Brick and won’t listen to anything he does.

You are so right ~ I never listen to any books read by Dick Hill.
Dick and Scott, however, have been two of the most sought after
and honored male narrators in audiobook publishing.

I'm reading Murder in Bloom, the fifth entry in Lesley Cookman's "Libby Sarjeant Murder Mystery" series. Cosy mysteries are not really my style, but pretty well plotted and well written, too.

I just finished the first Angela Marchmont mystery, The Murder at Sissingham Hall by Clara Benson. It was entertaining enough but I thought that the culprit was fairly obvious early on.

Just got David Putnam's The Innocents. Haven't read any of his books so I'm glad this is a "before the series" book. Now I can read them all in order. Just finished Elizabeth George's the punishment she deserves. A long, long heavy book; cant really figure out the title.

I had a couple of extra days off work so tackled Elizabeth George's latest tome: The Punishment She Deserves. I'd been losing interest in the last few books in this series, but I enjoyed this one.

I don't know if this one counts or not, though one certainly could make an argument that it is a thriller, but I just finished The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene. It was fantastic.

Discovering and enjoying a new "old" author, John Dickson Carr with Hag's Nook. Complete with vicar, cottage with a musty old library, haunted prison, young American traveler, and an endorsement by Agatha Christie on the back.

>35 gmathis: If you are just discovering John Dickson Carr (and liking his books), you should also look for books by Carter Dickson, which was one of Carr's nom de plumes.

>36 leslie.98: Several of them have been offered on Member Giveaway, which is how I stumbled on the first title.

If you're a M*A*S*H fan, there's an episode where the camp is so bored they tear apart a mystery novel called "The Rooster Crowed at Midnight" and pass it around chapter by chapter...as I read Hag's Nook, I keep envisioning Hawkeye and Charles Emerson Winchester reading this one aloud. :)

>39 rocketjk: Indubitably!

>40 rabbitprincess: Y'all are just making me smile. Dr. Gideon Fell, our intrepid amateur raconteur and sleuth is said to be loosely based on G.K. Chesterton, which is another little smile-inducing tidbit.

I finished the 3rd Philip Marlowe book, The High Window. Convoluted (as all of Chandler's plots are!) but more realisitic than the first 2 imo.

I just finished An Empty Death by Laura Wilson and thought it seemed vaguely familiar...according to my records in LibraryThing, I had read it 7 years ago! Not great, but not bad at all.
