I started this year reading five crime fiction books and two short stories. The two short stories were from a new-to-me author Paul D. Brazill. If you enjoy short stories with a noir accent, I highly recommend them. You can also see my reviews by clicking on the book’s title:
The Black Box by Michael Connelly.***
Seven Days by Deon Meyer. Translated by K. L. Seegers.****
Standing in Another Man’s Grave by Ian Rankin.****
I Hear the Sirens in the Street by Adrian McKinty.****
Death On A Hot Afternoon (Short story) by Paul D. Brazill.****
Red Esperanto (Short story) by Paul D. Brazill.****
L’Hora Zen, by Teresa Solana. English title: The Sound of One Hand Killing.**
My preference is split between Seven Days and Standing in Another Man’s Grave. But I’ll go for Rankin by a paltry margin.
