And we’re reading Jane Cleland’s BLOOD RUBIES and James W. Hall’s THE BIG FINISH!
BLOOD RUBIES by Jane Cleland
“Pleasing … The best part of this cozy is the knowledgeable discussion of antiques, including the eggs. Cleland has a knack for explaining things clearly without coming across as pedantic. Feline aficionados will enjoy Josie’s conversations with her cat.”–Publishers Weekly
THE BIG FINISH by James W. Hall
“Edgar-winner Hall’s heart-pounding 14th Thorn novel (after 2013’s Going Dark) takes the hard-bitten Florida PI to Pine Haven, N.C., where Thorn’s newly discovered son, Flynn Moss, and his fellow Earth Liberation Front activists target a hog factory farm in an “action” that goes awry. Hall keeps the tension mounting as motives and alliances shift with the foul-scented wind. Even as violence looms, Hall’s talent for description adds a balancing, poetical note.”–Publishers Weekly
“As always, Hall combines absurdist mayhem with remarkably subtle character interaction. Thorn is a stripped-down hermit version of Travis McGee, but like Trav, he makes a fine avenging angel.”–Booklist
