>I've read eight of these ten, Jose Igacio, and like you I enjoyed them all very much indeed. Great choices. I will obviously have to read the other two, now!
>I've read 6 of your 10 Jose IgnacioThanks for participating
>I've only read 3 of these (Darkest Room, Mind's Eye and Savage Alter) but loved them all so I'm sure the rest of your list is good as well as you obviously have excellent taste. I do have Water Blue Eyes on the TBR pile and want to get to it soon.
>Jose Ignacio – You've read some terrific books this year, Jose!
I’ve read 8 of your 10 and agree with your judgement on their merit 😉
I’ve just finished Nesbo’s standalone, Headhunters, and highly recommend it – short, exciting, twisty/turny, funny, a bit extreme – and written in first person so a bit different for Nesbo fans, but you still have to concentrate on every sentence in case you miss a vital clue!
