Here are this week's new reviews, website updates and a competition reminder:
Maxine Clarke admits she's read Andrea Camilleri's Montalbano series out of order but I shall hopefully post her reviews in order, continuing with the second in the series, The Terracotta Dog;
Declan Burke reviews Julius Winsome by Gerard Donovan - another Irish author setting his book in Maine;
My latest audio book review is of A Passion for Killing by Barbara Nadel read by the marvellous Sean Barrett who also does the Wallander books;
Sunnie Gill reviews the latest Inspector Banks book, Friend of the Devil by Peter Robinson, which appears to be to the same high standard as his earlier books
and Maxine reveals that The Man Who Went Up In Smoke by Sjowall and Wahloo the second in the classic Martin Beck series is good enough to allow a swift purchase of the rest of the set.
