Thursday! Are you ready to talk about what you've been reading this week? I'd love to know.
CrimeReads said about the book.
"Like the rest of the state of Ohio, Columbus has been hit hard by the opioid crisis, and the stories included in Akashic's ode to the city are as full of misery as the city currently is in real life. Moments of humanity shine through in many of the tales in this collection, and epic takes on pride and greed make many of the stories in this collection go beyond small miseries into the realm of Shakespearian tragedy. Urgent, beautiful, and not to be missed."
--CrimeReads, included in CrimeReads' Most Anticipated Crime Books of 2020
I wouldn't call these crime stories "beautiful". In fact, the first one was so gritty, I didn't pick up the book again for a week. But, my family is all in Ohio, so I know some of the spots written about in the book.
And, I certainly can't review it right now, but I also read, for review, Craig Johnson's next Longmire book, Next to Last Stand. Craig is one of my two favorite storytellers. When I read one of his books, I can hear Craig "reading" it to me. It's due out Sept. 22. Watch for it!
