|Never hide from a good book|

Reading right now:
“The Skin Collector” by Jeffery Deaver. This is the 11th book in the Lincoln Rhyme series which has Rhyme’s group of special investigators for the NYPD searching for a murderous tattoo artist who is using poison instead of ink. I like this series, but it was really depressing when Lincoln was thinking of killing himself and now “The Skin Collector” is very reminiscent of “The Bone Collector” which was the first book in the series. I’m hoping that it picks up, but so far I’m not thrilled.
“The Red Chameleon” by Erica Wright. I am really looking forward to reading this debut mystery from poet Wright. Private Investigator Kat Stone is following an unfaithful husband who ends up shoot to death. As a former NYPD undercover detective, she has friends in the department who bring her into the investigation. This novel is supposed to be funny and engaging. I love the idea that Stone is great with disguises and gets help from her best friends, a drag queen and a gifted wig maker, to make the disguises even better. It sounds like fun.
