I fought reading this book for a while, until I was able to get this from Amazon for a 1¢ (plus shipping, of course).

When “Agatha Christie” appears on the cover larger than the name of the novel and the actual author is tucked down at the bottom, it

You Know Who Killed Me by Loren D. Estleman
Rate this book
Clear rating
This novel is the 24th mystery in the Amos Walker series by an amazingly prolific writer, and I’ve read them all. I even own all of them, and I don’t do that often. Estleman must be a clone of Raymond Chandler, or at least as close to being one as a ...more

How timely! It is Christmas and here is a book set at Christmas. It is dark and dreary here, just the way Erlendur likes it. I myself don’t know how people north of the Red River stand long, cold, lonely winters. Erlendur is born to it; he may even t ...more

The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher by Kate Summerscale
Rate this book
Clear rating
In this book’s review in the New York Times Book Review, Marilyn Stasio dubbed this a True-Lit-Hist-Myst. It is the story of a true crime, committed in 1860, so it is also history, and is truly a mystery, because we cannot, at this remove, ever know ...more

Jar City by Arnaldur Indriðason

Jar City, the first entry in the Reykjavik Thriller series, is one of the most compelling mysteries I have read in a while. I actually had to sit down, or lie down, to read this book, rather than reading it on the run, as I have read several recent b ...more
