Currently Reading - The Last Exile, E.V. Seymour

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

I may be very behind with writing reviews at the moment, but there's nothing at all like the dreaded lurgy to get you way ahead with reading.  This is the first book from E.V. Seymour (the next book - The Mephisto Threat was released in July 2009).

From the Blurb:

After acting on false intelligence, officer Paul Tallis shoots a suspected terrorist in a Birmingham shopping centre.  Suspended from his job, his career is over.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

This book has been lurking on Mt TBR for a while, and was exactly the thing as a fun, quick filler read for the early days of December, where it's actually RAINING here (YEAH)

From the Blurb:

He's tall, he's dark and, like the shark, he looks for trouble.

Or so he wishes.  For with Queen Elizabeth newly established on her throne the now elderly secret agent is reaching the end of his scandalous career.  Despite his fast-approaching retirement, however, queer events leave Box unable to resist investigating one last case.

Book Title:

This is the 4th book in the Ed Loy series - a book I've been very much looking forward to.

From the Blurb:

Ed Loy has made some changes.  He has moved into a flat in Dublin's city centre, leaving the family home behind.  Maybe now he can break free from the ghosts of his past.

But when a fifteen-year-old murder case is re-opened, Loy is hired by the victim's daughter to investigate the suspects ignored by the first investigation; a rich property developer, an ex-IRA man and Loy's least favourite sociopath, George Halligan.

Currently Reading - Italian Shoes, Henning Mankell

Not a crime novel, this is an book about life, love, loss, redemption, reparation and restoration.  Thought-provoking, sad, reflective, fascinating.

From the Blurb:

Once a successful surgeon, Frederick Welin now lives in self-imposed exile on an island in the Swedish archipelago.  Nearly twelve years have passed since he was disgraced for attempting to cover up a tragic mishap on the operating table.  One morning in the depths of winter, he sees a hunched figure struggling towards him across the ice.  His past is about to catch up with him.

Currently Reading - Into the Shadows, Shirley Wells

New book from a new author - being read for a discussion on Murder & Mayhem.

From the Blurb:

When Rodney Hill, wrongly arrested for a series of murders, hangs himself, Jill Kennedy, the forensic pscyhologist whose profile led to Hill's arrest, gives up her work with the police and moves to the peaceful village of Kelton Bridge to write self-help books, enjoy a quiet life with her cats and perhaps an occasional flutter on the horses.
