August was quiet in relation to crime fiction events for me, with the exception of the excellent launch of Martin Edwards’s new book, The Frozen Shroud. However, my reading continued at a slower pace and all the books that I finished were of a high quality, mainly I suspect I only read what I really wanted to. Three of this month’s books were by ‘new to me writers’: Martin Edwards, Linda Stratmann and A D Garett. I hope to carry on reading all of these authors.
My book of the month is Jan Costin Wagner’s Light in a Dark House which is continuing a high quality series which is a must read for me, although the book wasn’t quite up to the standard of earlier ones.
The five books I read for Crimepieces were:
1. Everyone Lies by A D Garrett
2. Cold Hearts by Gunnar Staalesen
3. The Frozen Shroud by Martin Edwards
4. Light in a Dark House by Jan Costin Wagner
5. A Case of Doubtful Death by Linda Stratmann
I have some cracking books set for September, so fingers crossed….
