Euro Crime’s first weekly book-review post of July included my review of Blood in the Water, Gillian Galbraith’s debut. This book has been likened to one of Ian Rankin’s Rebus series, so check out my review to see if I concur. Other reviews this week include Karen Meek (aka Euro Crime) on Jo Nesbo’s The Redbreast; Terry Halligan on How to Kill by Kris Hollington and Geoff Jones on Bangkok Haunts by John Burdett. You can also enter the competitions to win some readable books.
And, as it seems I once again blinked and missed a week, you can also read my review of the excellent Sun and Shadow by Ake Edwardson here. Also last week on Euro Crime, Pat Austin reviews Illusion by Daniel Boyle, Fiona Walker enjoys The Chemistry of Death by Simon Beckett, Jan Harris is disappointed by The Tainted Relic and Karen herself enthuses about Karin Fossum’s Calling Out For You. (I haven’t read this particular Fossum book, but I’ve very much enjoyed earlier ones. The Simon Beckett is a good read, too — not the very best of the genre, but pretty good.) For another Euro Crime take on Sun and Shadow, read Karen Chisholm’s review here.
