May was the month of CrimeFest and thanks again to the organisers who worked so hard to provide such an interesting and informative event. It was great to see old faces, meet some of the people I only know through twitter and make new friends in the crime fiction community.
May was a mixed month for reading and my standout read was Anya Lipska’s Where the Devil Can’t Go. Set in London’s Polish migrant community it was a refreshing read from a debut author. Available, for now, only on kindle let’s hope that Anya gets published in print soon as I can think of at least two people I’d like to give a copy of this to.
The eight books I read in May for crimepieces were:
1. The Istanbul Puzzle by Laurence O’Bryan
2. Track of the Cat by Nevada Barr
3. Do No Harm by Carol Topolski
4. The Murder Wall by Mari Hannah
5. Track of the Cat by Mary Stewart
6. Wildfire at Midnight by Mary Stewart
7. Where the Devil Can’t Go by Anya Lipska
8. Burned by Thomas Enger
As usual, Kerrie over at Mysteries in Paradise is compiling a list of Book of the Month selections.
