  1. José Ignacio – Oh, so many of those books look very good! Several (e.g. the Camillieri, the Meyer, the Connelly and the Bauer – and several others!) are on my list as well. I’ll be very keen too to see what you think of the end of Mackay’s Glasgow trilogy and of the McGeachin (one of my top authors).

  2. I have also cast a covetous eye on many of those – look forward to seeing what you think of them (and hope you can stick to your resolution).

  3. So many interesting titles have UK release dates but not US ones! It makes my wishlist keeping a little more complicated, but I have more than enough to keep my busy.

  4. Jose Ignacio: It is a list I would love to acquire but I am trying to limit purchases and it is so hard. I have so many books I want to read that I already own I am avoiding buying more books. However, I do not think I will able to stay out of bookstores much longer. I have bought but one book this month.

  5. That should keep you busy! I have a few of these already but have only read the Pizzolatto. Mackay has fourth book out if you want to increase to 21!

  6. Your wish list resembles much of my own wish list. I’ll have to bookmark this page to remind
    myself of books I want to get, and I’ll get looking for the reviews.

    Spent Sunday reading Camilleri’s latest book to come to the States, “Angelica’s Smile.” It’s
    definitely a typical Montalbano, with me smiling constantly.

    • Nice coincidence Kathy I read last Sunday The Dance of the Seagull, have to catch up with some Montalbanos I have still unread before Angelica’s Smile Wonder if she is the same Angelica that has appeared in The Dance.. for the first time.

  7. No. Angelica reminds Salvo of the Angelica in Orlando Furioso.
    I thought the two books before this one were too violent, The Dance of the Seagulls
    and Treasure Hunt. But of course, I liked them anyway.

    I’ve read several global books, but have fallen down on the job with Latin America.
    Any suggestions of translated books? I might read another Luis Alfredo Garcia Rosa,
    with Inspector Espinosa, whom I like quite a bit.

    • Thank you Kathy. I believe Garcia Roza is an excellent choice. I do have several on my TBR pile but just need the time to get to them. From Argentina one of my favourite writers is Ernesto Mallo, don’t know if you have read any of his books but Needle in a Haystack would be my suggestion if you have not read him yet. From Cuba my suggestion will be Leonardo Padura, another one of my favourite writers.
