"Think there would be any interest in discussing the treatment of alcoholism in crime fiction? The reason this came to mind is that I'm reading one of Jo Nesbo's books, and Harry Hole doesn't behave like any alcoholic I have known."
"Season 2 of Broadchurch should be starting soon. I'm a big Tennant fan, too.
I've been watching a series called Crime Scene Cleaner on the MzH TV channel. It's a German 30-minute show. Each show sees the cleaner on assignment, during…"
"Finished another Camilleri's, "Rounding the Mark." He always makes me laugh, and his characters are like friends.
"The Player" by Brad Parks. This is his fifth, the books are well written first-person narratives.
"Karin Fossum's latest, The Murder of Harriet Krohn, is not so good. Perspective shifts between the murderer and third person following the police inspector. I think the problem is that there was nothing about the murderer to like.
"I found a British author, new for me, who has written a slew of police procedurals. His name is Peter Turnbull, and his books are on the brief side, around 200 pages. Tidy little mysteries featuring a likable detective inspector."
"There are about 25 favorite authors who seem to write a book each year, so I read those for sure. When I discover an established author, I'll go back and read their books in publication order. At the end of each Kindle book, there are suggested…"

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”
Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."
Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"
The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.
Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.
The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.
