a recommendation 'Kiss and Tell' by TJ Cooke

This book was reviewed by a former Guardian and Times writer and came across it on Amazon Kindle Store.

I  really enjoyed it, as much as I've enjoyed anything this year. Fresh style, interesting characters and great story. It might not be for hard boiled fans, though to be honest if you enjoy a good CF read you're bound to like it. Don't expect serial killers and cantankerous detecitves... do expect an investment in a great new character Jill Shadow and a book that increases with pace…

What in the World Is a Bouchercon?

I've given up telling people I'm going to Bouchercon next weekend, at least the people who aren't rabid mystery writers like me. Instead I say I'm attending a big meeting for mystery readers and writers in Cleveland. Most of the time that gets me a funny look that might mean, "I knew you were a little nuts."
