What Are You Reading?
It's Thursday! I love to read what you're all reading for the week. I'm halfway through a book that Jeff's going to love. It's a collection, The Usual Santas: A Collection of Soho Crime Christmas Capers. It's broken into three sections, but I'm only partway through the second one. They are: "Joy to the World: Random Acts of Kindness at Christmas", "Silent Night: The Darkest of Holiday Noir", and "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus: And Other Holiday Secrets". That second section? There are some very dark stories, but that's why it's called "noir". Peter Lovesey wrote the foreword, and a perfect concluding story (I cheated and read it early). Authors include Tim Hallinan, Colin Cotterill, Stuart Nevill, Sujata Massey, Cara Black. There are eighteen stories in this outstanding collection. You have time to save your pennies. It comes out in October.
