I need another Crime & Mystery novel, and I can't quell that feeling, as it turns out. sooo, one more book sneaked in before A Dance of Shadows. Alison Bruce will be a new experience for me, but she has a fairly recent novel out in paperback, while I, on the other hand, had previously acquired this older one. older one terrific...newer book will be that much more tempting! that's the hazy plan.
