The Pick of the Month, hosted by Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise, is a book meme. The purpose is to identify our crime fiction best read for that particular month. You can check HERE the contribution of other bloggers.
From my side March 2012 has not been a rich month reading-wise. I’ve finished five books only, but I did quite enjoyed almost all of them:
- Wash This Blood Clean From My Hand. Original title: Sous les vents de Neptune (2004). Spanish title: Bajo los vientos de Neptuno (Punto de Lectura, 2008), by Fred Vargas.****
- Grey Souls (aka By a Slow River). Original title: Les Âmes grises, 2003. Sapanish title: Almas grises (Ediciones Salamandra, 2010), by Philippe Claudel.**
- The Moving Target (Vintage crime/Black Lizard, 1998), by Ross Macdonald.*****
- Blood Spilt. Original title: Det blod som spillts, 2004. Spanish title: Sangre derramada (Booket, 2011), by Åsa Larsson. ****
- Retrato de familia con muerta (Family Portrait with Dead Woman) Diario Público 2011, de Raúl Argemí.****
And my preference, this month, goes to The Moving Target by Ross Macdonald
