Reviews during my absence

Although I am unable to blog just now, I see I have been busy reading and reviewing in my literal and virtual absence. Here are some of the books I’ve reviewed for Eurocrime in the past few weeks, with a link to the review in each case. I can manage stars, so I’ve rated the books with stars here:

The Midnight Choir by Gene Kerrigan (brilliant)****

The Death List by Paul Johnson (OK)*

The Shadow Walker by Michael Walters (very good)***

The Bone Garden by Kate Ellis (good)**

The Princess of Burundi by Kjell Ericksson (very good)***

You can read more of my reviews, and reviews by lots of other people, on the excellent Eurocrime website (and associated blog), which also provides competitions, news, author information and more about fictional crime — with a European accent.
