I read four really great novels this month.  City of Women is fabulous debut novel dealing with Nazi Germany.  I read The Stonecutter by Camilla Läckberg, and could hardly put it down.  It's a police procedural, Swedish style.  I loved it so much I downloaded her previous book, The Preacher, to take on my trip.  I was not disappointed.  The King of Lies is a legal thriller.  I hadn't read John Hart before, but I really loved this book; Hart has written three additional novels, and I'm sure I'll be reading them, soon.

Two of my reads this month were exclusively e-books.  Sucide Run is a collection of Harry Bosch stories; as usual, with Connelly, it was a great read.  Deep Down is a short story featuring Jack Reacher, before he retired.  It was also great.

Horror stories are not my usual read, but I like to read debut novels.  I am really glad I read Breed.  It was outstanding.  I highly recommend it.  The ARC had an endorsement from Stephen King!

On of my favorite fiction assassins is Keller, Lawrence Block's character in the Hit Man series.  The latest installment did not disappoint.  I love Keller.
