Philip Elliott My darkly comic hardboiled mystery novel Porno Valley comes out in August, the follow-up to Nobody Move which won Best First Novel in the Arthur Ellis Awards. It would be awesome if interested readers added it to their Goodreads or maybe even pre-ordered it and made my day!

Right now myself, I'm about to read book #3 of Joe Ide's amazing IQ series.

Amy Great week to start Murder on the Orient Express by Ms. Christie. Currently on Audible Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson.

Christina All copies of Moonflower Murders by Anthony Horowitz are in use at my library. Apparently the Mystery & Thriller week promotion is to sell recent stories of those genres. I will read Oscar Wilde and the Return of Jack the Ripper: An Oscar Wilde Mystery by Gyles Daubeney Brandreth as it's a physical book that I borrowed from the library and didn't have to wait weeks or months to get.
