Crime Fiction Pick of the Month 2012 – January


During January I’ve read six books, and I find quite difficult to choose only one, almost all excellent reads and above the three stars mark. But if I’m placed in a position to choose only one I’ll pick up Excursion to Tindari just a whisker ahead The Burning Soul

  • The Burnig Soul (Hodder & Stoughton, 2011), by John Connolly*****
  • Collusion (Vintage, 2011), by Stuart Neville****
  • Ciudad Santa (Almuzara, 2009), by Guillermo Orsi (English title: Holy City)***
  • Cop Killer (Harper Perennial, 2007), by Maj Sjöwall & Per Wahlöö (translated by Thomas Teal)****
  • A Place of Execution (Harper Collins, 2006, first published 1999), by Val McDermid****
  • La excursión a Tindari (Salamandra, 2004), de Andrea Camilleri (traducción de Maria Antonia Menini Pagès). Original title: La gita a Tindari (English title: Excursion to Tindari)

P.S.: If you want to see other people’s crime fiction picks of the month head over to Mysteries in Paradise for the Pick of the Month meme.

  1. I haven’t read your first three choices, Jose Ignacio – I’ll be reading the Orsi when the translated version is out in the UK. I liked the Camilleri and the McDermid – did not enjoy the McBain so much, thought it had dated compared with the Martin Beck series written in roughly the same era.
