Mystery Book Group Night

My mystery book group met tonight for our monthly book discussion and also for dinner and a book exchange. We have these special extended meetings twice a year. We discussed the book Three Seconds by Roslund & Hellström.

I found the book to be ok. I know some reviews likened it to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but I thought the Larsson book was better.  I’ll try to post a review tomorrow and tell you more about it. Overall the book group thought it was a good thriller but not necessarily on par with the Larsson book.

From the book exchange I got these books to add to my shelf:

  • The Day Is Dark by Yrsa Sigurdardottir. I’ve read a couple of her books and I believe this is the fourth one so I was excited to get this one.
  • The Game by Laurie R. King. This is one of her novels in the Sherlock Holmes & Mary Russell series of which I’ve not read any so this may be on my shelf for a while.
  • Though Not Dead by Dana Stabenow. Apparently there have been 17 previous Kate Shugak novels. Oh my, this one will be on my shelf for a very long time as I like to read a series in order.
  • Christine by Madeleine Masson. A biography of one of the most successful women agents of the Second world War. Did not realize this was a biography until now. Interesting.

Next month we’ll be discussing The Inquisitor’s Key by Jefferson Bass. And, I’m very excited because I just saw that NPR is back with their Crime in the City feature.
