2011: Read this!

Ahhh, at last -- I can update what I was talking about a bit ago. I'd really wanted the cover, but it wasn't posted yet.

Dark and engrossing... Continuing where we left off in Edge: Point. Amazing book, and Point is my candidate for best book of 2011. No spoilers, but I think you should read Edge first.

A good book...

A new penpal got me into J.D. Carr mysteries. My second novel was The Crooked Hinge.

It's really really good. I sat down and didn't get up, except for a drink of water, and then sat back down and read it straight through. Amazing.

I haven't found the detective, Dr. Gideon Fell, as engrossing as some others -- say Joe Leaphorn, Miss Marple, Mr Campion, Ellery Queen [you knew I'd mention Ellery!]. I like listening to Fell. He's nice.

But Carr's writing is engrossing. :>

Next week: World Fantasy!
