Short Takes 4/6/17

Today's mail brought me a review copy of The Bronx Kill by Philip Cioffari, an author with whom I am not familiar. "The complexity and durability of friendship stand at the heart of . . . an extraordinary novel that earned high advance praise from Kirkus Reviews."

Blogger/Librarian Marlyn Beebe posted a link to Facebook that I just had to share. Check out 100 Must-Read Books with Plot Twists. I've actually read 20 of these titles and they are all as advertised!

Excerpts from SinC Links:

The mystery world mourns the death of Colin Dexter, creator of Inspector Morse and the inspiration behind “Lewis” and “Endeavour.” HIGHLY RECOMMENDED READING

The Play That Goes Wrong” upends the mystery whodunit. This knockabout mystery farce from London trades on the perverse comfort of watching things go smash in a safe, contained environment. ONE OF THE PRODUCERS IS A COLLEGE CLASSMATE.

NY Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris is launching a new fantasy series set in a fractured America. The first book in the trilogy, TEXOMA, will debut in 2018. JUST READ MY FIRST (AND LAST) AURORA TEAGARDEN.

Early in March, SinC released the 2016 Monitoring Report, the annual report which highlights media coverage of books by female crime novelists. It has been at the cornerstone of the Sisters in Crime mission for 30 years. I MONITOR DEADLY PLEASURES FOR THIS PROJECT.
