It's Monday! What Are You Reading?



 
It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. For this meme, bloggers post what they finished last week, what they're currently reading, and what they plan to start this week.
My comments are not meant to be recaps of the story lines as I include a link to Goodreads for their synopsis of the book. I am merely stating how I felt about the book without giving any spoilers.
My 2013 reading list can be found here.


FINISHED THIS WEEK:


Mammoth Books Presents the Best British Crime Omnibus: Volume 7, 8 and 9

Synopsis here.

OK I didn't actually read the entire book. I skipped over some stories. Some stories were great others just mediocre. Some just read like a draft that never should have seen the light of day.

STARTED THIS WEEK:
Watching The Dark (Inspector Banks, #20)

DCI Alan Banks is back – and this time he’s investigating the murder of one of his own.
 
A respected officer convalescing at the St. Peter’s Police Treatment Centre, DI Bill Quinn, is killed by a crossbow while on the facility’s tranquil grounds, and the initial investigation uncovers compromising photos in his room. Soon after, Professional Standards Inspector Joanna Passero arrives in Eastvale and insists on working the case alongside a reluctant Banks, who’s convinced a police officer shouldn’t be deemed guilty without proper evidence.

But the more they learn, the more likely it seems that Quinn wasn’t all he was reputed to be, that his murder is linked to another vicious crime in Yorkshire and to a cold case – the disappearance of a nineteen-year-old English girl, Rachel Hewitt, in Estonia six years earlier. 

Intricate, engrossing, and psychologically tense, the twentieth book in the internationally bestselling series by award-winning author Peter Robinson may be the most suspenseful Banks mystery yet

  1. I love short story collections - but so agree that sometimes, the stories are so uneven. Hope you enjoy your reads this week.
