Better late than never! January was a great month for reading. Not a turkey in the batch.
I loved The Second Girl by Swinson. Who wouldn't love a retired detective with a taste for the forbidden? "Like Dennis Lehane and Richard Price, David Swinson gives us a gritty urban crime novel populated with morally complex, utterly believable characters. Swinson knows how to build suspense, and he has a great ear for the patois of the streets, but it is detective Frank Marr's tightrope walk between his noble and darker impulses that makes The Second Girl such a rewarding read from start to finish."—Ron Rash
One of my reading vices is Scandinavian crime novels. Anne Holt is a master; if you haven't read her I really recommend her writing. Blessed are Those Who Thirst was great.
Did you know that Mitch Albom is a songwriter and musician, in addition to being a best-selling author? The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto combines Albom's love of music with his great writing, I loved this tale and I bet you will, too!
