The Most Memorable Books: 2014

Because it's been such a stellar year for Crime Fiction - a Most Memorable of the Year List before Christmas seems like a plan in case anybody is thinking about books to spoil themselves / friends / family with. Of course the year isn't over yet and I fully expect a few more "memorables" between now and the end of December, if the previous 11 months have been any indication.

The ones that simply will not go out of my head:

Currently Reading - Death Can't Take a Joke, Anya Lipska

Author Name: 

The second book featuring DC Nat Kershaw and PI Janusz Kiszka, I've been looking very forward to this one. Following the pattern as well, I'm listening to Chopin (predictable I know but I couldn't think of another Polish composer in a hurry).

From the Blurb:

When masked men brutally stab one of his closest friends to death, Janusz Kiszka – fixer to East London’s Poles – must dig deep into London’s criminal underbelly to track down the killers and deliver justice.

CR - Where the Devil Can't Go - Anya Lipska

Author Name: 

No idea why I picked up this book - but very glad I did.

From the Blurb:

Janusz Kiszka, unofficial 'fixer' to East London’s Polish community, and a man with his own distinctive moral code, has been hired to track down a missing waitress. Meanwhile, DC Natalie Kershaw, a rookie detective who’s not afraid of breaking a few rules, investigates the suspicious deaths of two Polish girls.

They hail from very different worlds, but Kiszka and Kershaw are set on collision course…
