Mortmain Hall | Martin Edwards

This is historical crime fiction set in England in 1930. It is the second in a series about a young women called Rachel Savernake, who is an amateur detective. She tries to solve a series of possible murders, that at first are deemed not murder. She is joined by journalist Jacob Flint. She goes to an estate, Mortmain Hall with she tries to solve the case like in an Agatha Christie style. I enjoyed it, I did not figure out the murderer. #crimebooks

This was a good thriller, really had no idea who was the culprit. I enjoyed that it was set in the Swiss Alps too. #crimebooks

This is the 21st book in the series, it deals with the death of a women back in 1978, plus Daryl Christie, who took over from Big Ger Cafferty on the gangster side of Edinburgh is attacked. DI Clarke and DI Fox are to investigate, plus Rebus does his own meddling as a civilian. Another good and enjoyable book from Ian Rankin. #crimebooks

My favorite read in January, I loved it. Set mostly on a merchant ship sailing from Dutch East Indies to Amsterdam. On the ship is Samuel Pipps, the greatest detective, but under arrest. It then befalls to his friend and bodyguard to solve the mysterious happenings and murder on the ship. It has supernatural elements, a stalker leper and much more! #crimebooks

This was the first time I read a Vera book. I loved her Shetland series. I liked this one, this involves some of Vera's distant relatives and of course murder. Vera is such a great character and of course in the tv show which I also watch, she is brought to life brillianty. #crimebooks
