I think I mentioned that I had received my latest issue of Mystery Scene last week and finally I sat down to read it and added some new mysteries to my wish list.
- The Devil’s Whisper by Miyuki Miyabe. An eerie tale that recalls some classic Japanese horror films.
- Variations on Murder by A.C. Baantjer. An Amsterdam police detective.
- London Frog by Joseph Pittman. A crime caper.
- The Widening Stain by Morris Bishop. Reprint of a Golden Age classic.
- Absolution by Caro Ramsay. A police procedural and psychological thriller.
Let me know if you’ve read any of these and recommend them. And, if you can’t get enough of mysteries be sure to check out January Magazine. They are doing a best of 2007 Crime Fiction report. I just realized that the only one I’ve read from their best of list is one of the books I least liked this year. Ah well, there are a lot of books on here that I’ve heard of and that sound good so I’d still give some of those a try.
