as I had hoped, the J T Ellison story was one of the best ones in the collection. just one more to go - 'Looking for the Lost' by Ariel Lawhon'. I like the title.
it’s pretty addictive, and there’s a chance I’ll get it done tonight. as far as the revelations at the end go...I expect to be thoroughly tricked. again.
it was a great idea, Harry. almost worked. also very dangerous, for your recruit who helped with the plan. anyway...glad you’re thinking, because I have no line on this killer.
book is badass good. I am, nevertheless, occasionally pondering my next read - probably either Devil Sharks, or Seven Dead. not decided.
aw, the good times are definitely over - or on severe hiatus - for Harry. if that wasn’t true up to page 200, page 201 made it official.
another terrific entry in the series, so far.
I don't get to chill with one of my favorite regular characters in this series anymore, thanks to the events of the previous book...but this new person, journalist Mona Daa, is interesting. don't know if she'll be a regular in the books, yet. I mean...there is a killer on the loose (for now).
the facts in the case are gruesome. the facts have also been leaked. that means the pressure to solve is on. enter: Harry. yay!
an entertaining story from David Bell, but now I'm excited to have finally arrived at the doorstep of the J. T. Ellison tale, 'Catwood'. I confess an extra fondness for the title. but then again, it has "Cat" in it.
not putting this off any longer.
when I read Police, I thought for sure it was intended to be the last book in the Harry Hole series. I was both sad and happy; I would miss Harry...but his troubles seemed to be over, his creator seemed content to let him sail off into the sunset.
may finish this tonight.
this would have been a good one to save for the last few days to Halloween, but aw well, too late now. my own fault, because I knew it had a high reputation among the author’s novels, but I picked it for early-ish September anyway. I’m sure I can find something else for Halloween week. I hope.
I’m totally loving The Face That Must Die...reminds me a bit of a later one that I worship even more, The Count of Eleven. putting things in perspective, this one is not likely to top my Ramsey favorite, Nazareth Hill, but it would be a big deal if it did...because that’s my favorite Horror novel by anyone. I don’t think I’ve entered that zone, but I am very happy with this very chilling tale!
Campbell has always been a favorite of mine, and I seem to have latched on to one of his best books from way way back. absolutely loving this, and thoroughly creeped out.
three stories left.
the two I just read - ‘In Home Visit’, and ‘The Perfect House’ - were strong Horror entries; the book has decided to be a Horror parade towards the end, but I am hoping for one more Crime & Mystery tale that rocks. we’ll see. this book is running about a 3.5 rating with me, overall...which is up from the 3 stars I was planning to award based on earlier reactions. the collection has been more fun - scary fun - lately, even if it has never been brilliant (so far).
I really want a Horror novel right now. not a whole bunch, yet, mind you - if I’m going to binge-read Horror, it’s gonna happen in Oct., not Sept., as was the plan all along. but my way-back plan of possibly only doing Crime & Mystery all through September fell by the wayside, when I made time for some SF, and now that the Halloween Bingo is in full force amongst many here, all that Horror splashing about has got me in the mood for it too. right now. um, I mean right after two stories in Dead Ends (some of which has been Horror anyway), and maybe a graphic novel. so, okay, around the corner from right now.
