So busy at the moment, so this is going to be a very quick book of the month.
Insert something here about Brian Flynn – seems I can’t write a post at the moment without plugging the books that are coming out on October 7th – I just might write more on that in the coming days.
Twelve books, which sounds good, but a number were left over from August. They were:
- Rope’s End, Rogue’s End by E C R Lorac
- The Loss Of The Jane Vosper by Freeman Wills Crofts
- It Walks By Night by John Dickson Carr
- The Perfect Murder Case by Christopher Bush
- The Measure Of Malice edited by Martin Edwards
- The Hangman’s Hold by Michael Wood
- The Great Merlini by Clayton Rawson
- Dark Truths by A J Cross
- The Horror At Wardens Hall by Charles Wogan
- The Long Call by Ann Cleeves
- The Hooded Gunman by John Curran
- The Body In The Road by Moray Dalton
No time for the quick comments, but basically all good reads from the Golden Age, apart from Charles Wogan’s effort, which is a bit disappointing, and Moray Dalton as it’s a bit disjointed. Best modern novel was easily Ann Cleeves’ book, but Book Of The Month? Well, if you can afford it, it’s The Hooded Gunman, but otherwise, The Measure Of Malice is easily my favourite of the BL short story collections, so let’s call it a dead heat between those two.
Right, back soon, with as many reviews as I can fit around work at the moment. Half-term isn’t too far away…
