[Reviews] Two for the Dough

I laughed so hard and so often that I almost didn't care how disappointing the central mystery actually was.

[Reviews] The Bookman's Wake

The best Cliff Janeway story you're likely to ever read, and a terrific mystery novel by nearly any standard.

[Reviews] The Bookwoman's Last Fling

The Bookman's Promise

I rather enjoyed "Booked to Die," the first novel from John Dunning. It tells the story of a police officer who retires from the job (under a bit of a cloud) and opens a bookstore. Unfortunately, even with the change of profession, he can't seem to stay away from criminal types who maybe want to kill him. The local library has most of the rest of the series on hand, but not the second book, so I decided to keep reading and that led me next to "The Bookman's Promise.

Dead Line

I only read "Dead Line" because I really like the author's series of "Good Thief" books, but the library didn't have the newest one on hand. In fact, though Chris Ewan has written several other books (including "Safe House," which supposedly is amazing), the only other work of his that the library had on the shelf was... this one.

"Booked to Die" is the first entry in a series of novels that hasn't seen a lot of installments despite garnering a fair bit of critical acclaim. I couldn't resist giving it a shot, and I'm glad I did.
