One of the things I often do on the first of the month is to look at Stop, You're Killing Me! for a list of books coming out this month. Then I dream.
This month, just on the basis of descriptions, I have high hopes for Owl Killers.
I also notice there will be a new Agatha Raisin mystery. So far, I continue to let the sort of bumbling Agatha and her friends frustrate me.
I also wondered about R. J. Ellory's A Quiet Belief in Angels. Ken Bruen has called the book, "A riveting mystery; as compelling as it's moving. Beautifully written, with a bleak poetry that makes you yearn to read aloud. Think Salinger meets Chandler."
It is fun to look over the list of upcoming books. Do you see books that look good to you?
