  1. Thanks for the round-up Jose and delighted to see Craig Russell as your pick of the month. Interested to see that you have a review for Malcolm Mackay’s book in the pipeline- hope you liked it as much as me!

  2. Nice list(s) Jose. I haven’t yet read any Craig Russell books, though there are a couple languishing in the pile. nice to see you enjoyed the Lewis Winter book, and you’ve beaten me to the 2nd Laidlaw! Those Scottish boys can write! Have you tried Tony Black at all?
