I must be because mysteries are building my book stack. Here’s a few climbing to the top.
American Fire by Monica Hesse
This is nonfiction true crime reporting involving arson on the rural Virginia Coast. The critics are raving. The first 20 pages indicate it will be a page-turner with much information about the community and the crime.
The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny
The print is small in this edition published in 2009, but I always like her books and have not read any of the early ones. Again the reader will find a suspenseful tale lurking in the village of Three Pines located in Quebec.
Camino Island by John Grisham
Likely the first one I’ll crack in this stack. From Princeton to Florida, it sounds exciting. Not sure where Camino Island is located but I always enjoy his Florida settings. This mystery is currently topping many best seller lists.
The Late Show by Michael Connelly
Readers will meet a new LAPD female detective. She works the overnight shift hence the title. There’s often some heart in Connelly’s police procedurals so I’m looking forward to this one, though I don’t yet have it in hand.
