Manhattan Is My Beat | Jeffery Deaver
Pickpick

Love the sweet, quirky, childlike, imaginative, rose-colored glasses life, tomboyish protagonist! She's inductive into my hall of fav female characters. This series is early, and thus, different, more cozy, lighter, and more noir-ish, than his more gritty Lincoln Rhyme crime thrillers. Read if you love old Hollywood, childlike perspective of pursuing adventures+ treasure hunts, film/ pop culture/ philosophy references, discussions on being oneself

PageShifter Wow!! Have fun!! Too bad I have not read the first eight books so can't join 😒 3d
Andrew65 @PageShifter Yes a group of us that have read the series together and this one is next for us. If you haven‘t read them it is a good series but quite dark. 3d
PageShifter I love dark stories 👍 3d

Atmospheric Australian crime fiction that kept me turning the pages to find out "whodunnit".

Thank goodness for tv executives, otherwise I might never read any of my books. 😉 Karen Pirie is a rather minor character in this; she doesn‘t even appear until about 45% in. I‘m hoping that is rectified in subsequent installments. McDermid is such a pro though, it was still a good read. And now I have yet another series on the go which is useful for when my brain can‘t handle anything else. #StartASeries

This the third book in the Barbarotti series, and another total comfort read for me. Valdemar Roos, 60 years old, decides on a new direction, a secret life in the woods.. An unusual man who keeps us guessing. I cant say much more , spoilers! ( I wouldn‘t even read the blurb, they tell you way too much). I think the picture on the cover sets the mood.

Second book finished for #SuperSeptember

I found this one of the more enjoyable books in the series and saw a pick uop in the series after the last book or two. Hopefully this continues. Good to see a book where Rhona‘s relationship with Liam was explored more. Good plotting and look forward to the next one.

Tove_Reads Yes, I liked this one! Read the next Chris Carter, a Coban you haven‘t read (if there is one), or start the fabulous Lottie Parker series by Patricia Gibney - you‘ll be out of the slump in no time!! 1w
Tove_Reads Oh, and in October we‘ll be reading 1w

This was a good read - #Two4Tuesday I would suggest Leonard's character Mitchell from this book to play Chili Palmer from Get Shorty! I think this book reads like a preview of things to come in his other books -

#SuperSeptember #BookSpinBingo one more book to go -

Thanks for hosting @Andrew65 and @TheAromaofBooks and thanks for the tag @TheSpineView

Make a great day everyone - 🙂
