Crime Fiction Pick of the Month September 2012


The purpose of the Pick of the Month meme, hosted by Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise, is to identify our crime fiction best read for each particular month. You can click HERE to find the contributions of other participants.

In September 2012 I read five crime fiction books. You can find my review by clicking the book title.

  • The Cipher Garden by Martin Edwards. First published 2005****
  • Black Out by John Lawton. First published 1995 ***
  • The Nameless Dead by Brian McGilloway. 2012 ****
  • The Thief by Fuminori Nakamura. Translated by Satoko Izumo and Stephen Coates, 2012.****
  • Burned by Thomas Enger. Translated by Charlotte Barslund, 2011. My review will be posted soon.****
  • I would like to highlight all of them. But my personal preference is for The Nameless Dead by Brian McGilloway.

    1. I’ve heard a lot about your pick of the month Jose. I need to try it sometime. Of your others, I have read ‘Burned’ which I enjoyed.

    2. I liked Burned and The Cipher Garden too, but would not argue with your choice of The Nameless Dead for book of the month. (Have not read the other titles.)

    3. José Ignacio – Some fine choices there! But like Maxine I wouldn’t argue with your choice of The Nameless Dead. I’m glad that you had mostly very good reading experiences too.

    4. I have only read two of the Brian McGilloway and my husband just finished the third one. So I have a lot to look forward to. I loved all of the John Lawton series about Inspector Troy. The Thief sounds very interesting.
