Reading right now:
“Skin Game” by Jim Butcher. This paranormal thriller series may not be a traditional mystery series, but it is highly entertaining and filled with terrific characters. This is Harry Dresden’s fifteenth appearance in what has been a wild ride. While Harry may have started out as a mild manned Wizard PI, he’s now Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness (Mab). In this latest edition of Harry’s exploits, he’s stuck making a deal with Mab for his life. He has to break into a high security vault to recover the Holy Grail from Hades, Lord of the Underworld. Fulfilling his promise to Mab involves working with friends and enemies alike and may just get him killed (again).
“The Devil’s Workshop” by Alex Grecian. This is the third book in the Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad historical mystery series. A prison break sends four or maybe five? murderers back out into the streets of 1890 London. Some of the escaped prisoners are men that the Murder Squad already put away and one of them may well be Jack the Ripper. One escaped prisoner proceeds to seek revenge on a Murder Squad member and his family. The book is said to be full of secret societies, underground tunnels, chase scenes, blood and gore. I can’t wait to read this one!
