I don‘t think I‘ve ever read P.D. James before. I‘m not sure how I made that omission, but I decided to give this book a try over Christmas. I liked it, but didn‘t love it. I think I‘m just more used to Agatha Christie‘s lighter style. To be fair, I liked these stories enough to want to give a James full-length novel a try before I make a final judgement on her writing. I‘d still recommend this collection.

It‘s been awhile since I‘ve listened to a Bosch novel — this one is Bosch & Ballard, and it is narrated by both Titus Welliver and Christine Lakin. Both are great narrators, but I still have not made up my mind if I like Ballard as a character. #audiowalk

I‘ve been wanting to read about Agatha Christie for years, and this graphic novel was a great start. I liked that her characters made appearances.

Short story telling how Agatha got her start in PR and detective work.

I still find Ms. Beaton's style a bit clunky, so having read two novels and now a short story, I'm in no hurry to look at her other works.

P. D. James is not an incredibly celebrated author for nothing. She has such skill. Beautiful descriptions, a couple of surprises... great set of stories.

very dry - probably due to exhaustive descriptions- accounts of possibly-explicable OOPs, occurrences, and accounts of odd experience. Worth a read if you enjoy Forteana and want to fill in gaps.

I finished, although the last 50% was a bit of a chore. Deserves a solid so-so as I could not guess what the twist would be, as there‘s always a twist in Deaver‘s books. The picture is of the Hope Diamond. The cutting edge title refers to diamonds.
