Reading Right Now:

            “The Good Cop” by Brad Parks which is part of his award winning Carter Ross series. Ross, investigative reporter with the Newark Eagle-Examiner, is always in trouble with the local police, with his boss, and with the women in his life. The series is funny and suspenseful. I loved the first two books “Faces of the Gone” and “Eyes of the Innocent.” Wasn’t as thrilled with the third book, but have high hopes for “The Good Cop” which sounds really exciting and centers around a cop’s suspicious suicide.
On Hold Right Now:

            “The Boyfriend” by Thomas Perry which is a stand-alone novel and introduces Jack Till a retired cop who is now a PI. Perry is well known for his Jane Whitefield series (Jane helps people disappear). Bestselling author Thomas Perry has a good 20 novels under his belt, has won several awards, and the Independent Mystery Booksellers’ Association included “Vanishing Act” in its “100 Favorite Mysteries of the 20th Century.”

Special Interest:

Ruth Ozeki may not be a mystery writer, but she is remarkable. If you want some amazing books to read pick up “My Year of Meats” and “All Over Creation.” Her new book “A Tale for the Time Being” just came out and I can’t wait to read it. I have waited forever for her to write a new fiction book. Her other two books dealt with food production (one with the beef industry and the other genetic engineering of food).

New books In April:
Susan Wittig Albert: “Widow’s Tears.” (21st in the China Bayles series.)
David Baldacci: “The Hit.” (Second in the Will Robie series.)
Anne Perry: “Midnight at Marble Arch.” (28th in the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series.)
Aimée & David Thurlo: “A Time of Change.” (First in the new Navajo Rez Mystery Series.)
T. Jefferson Parker:  “The Famous and the Dead.” (Book six in the Charlie Hood series.)
Jacqueline Winspear: “Leaving Everything Most Loved.” (Tenth in the Maisie Dobbs series.)
