Before I write up details of the other events I attended at CrimeFest 2013, I’ve realised that I’m late posting my pick of the month for May. When I cast my eye of the books I read in May, I can see that the vast majority were written by women which, although not deliberate, I’m pleased about. Three of the seven books were from Scandinavia, part of my reading for the 2014 Petrona Award. However, my pick of the month goes to an audio book. The Earth Hums in B Flat by Mari Strachan is beautifully written and the narration by Jenni Lea-Jones is a delight.
The seven books I read for crimepieces were:
1. Before I Burn by Gaute Heivoll
2. Thus Was Adonis Murdered by Sarah Caudwell
3. The Earth Hums in B Flat by Mari Strachan
4. In the Family by Christina James
5. Lifetime by Liza Marklund
6. The Hanging by Lotte and Soren Hammer
Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise is collating the pick of the month by other reviewers.
