  1. Made a mistake on my entry...that should be Bev@My Reader's Block (Crocodile on the Sandbank)

  2. Two thrillers this week, 'The Lie' by CL Taylor and 'Daughter' by Jane Shemilt. They are both fast paced and engrossing.

  3. for me another book by Ben Aaronavitch, Rivers of London, A combination of fantasy and crime. Weird but it works
