My recent reads have all been crime fiction although the Strawberry Thief is not really crime fiction.
Two Peter May books and two Robert Crais and one by Joanne Harris
Freeze Frame is another in the Enzo Macleod series, book #4.
“A promise made to a dying man leads forensics ace Enzo Macleod, a Scot who’s been teaching in France for many years, to the study which the man’s heir has preserved for nearly twenty years. The dead man left several clues there designed to reveal the killer’s identity to the man’s son, but ironically the son died soon after the father. It takes Enzo to a tiny island off the coast of Brittany in France, where he must confront the hostility of locals who have no desire to see the infamous murder back in the headlines. An attractive widow, a man charged but acquitted of the murder–but still the viable suspect, a crime scene frozen in time, a dangerous hell hole by the cliffs, and a collection of impenetrable messages, make this one of Enzo’s most difficult cases.“
A cracking read.
“Detective Sime Mackenzie finds himself on a murder case on Entry Island, a tiny isle in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The suspect, a newly-widowed woman named Kirsty, seems oddly familiar to Sime. What is their connection? And can Sime survive in the same unit as his ex-wife long enough to find out?”
This book alternates between two locations, one in present day Canada and the other in the 1800s in the Hebrides.
A good crime fiction read.
Elvis Cole and Joe Pike are joined by Suspect heroes LAPD K-9 Officer Scott James and his German shepherd, Maggie in The Promise which is Robert Crais 20th novel and it’s a great read. Perfect entertainment for crime fans and dog lovers everywhere.
