New to me authors January – April 2014

I read nine books by new to me authors during the last quarter. My best discovery was The City of Shadows by Michael Russell by a whisker over Visitation Street by Ivy Pochoda.  And I was also glad for having read and/or discovered some writers of the calibre of Pascal Garnier, Ed McBain and Friedrich Dürrenmatt.
