Grime and Punishment (Jane Jeffry, #1)Grime and Punishment by Jill Churchill

Three stars is a bit low but four would have been too high. I found the book okay but nothing special. If grades were used instead of stars I'd award the author a B-. The protagonist is a mother with three kids... Read more of this blog post »

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
