July 2015 Round-Up and Pick of the Month

Crime fiction books read and reviewed this month:

The Nine Tailors (Hodder & Stoughton, 2003) Format: Paperback Edition. First published in Great Britain in 1934 by Dorothy L. Sayers (A+)

The Yellow Dog (Penguin Classics, 2013) Format: Paperback. Translated by Linda Asher. Originally published in French as Le chien jaune in 1931 by Georges Simenon (A)

Summerchill (Constable, 2015) Format: Kindle Edition, by Quentin Bates (A)

The Black Dahlia (Cornerstone Digital, 2011) Format: Kindle Edition. First published in 1987 by James Ellroy (A+)

In Bitter Chill (Faber & Faber Crime, 2015) Format: Kindle Edition, by Sarah Ward (A)

And my choice for this moth pick of the month will be: A tie between two very different books but equally appealing: A classic mystery book, The Nine Tailors; and a modern classic ‘noir’, The Black Dahlia.

Anyhow all the books read have been worthwhile and are highly recommended.
