Here are this week's new reviews and a reminder of February's competitions:
Maxine Clarke continues her series of reviews of Andrea Camilleri's Montalbano series, her latest being The Scent of the Night and whereas Maxine has many good things to say about her Italian book...
...Norman Price finds his Italian book a bit of a challenge, calling The Natural Disorder of Things by Andrea Canobbio "an exercise in self indulgent, pretentious rambling";
Terry Halligan reviews the latest thriller from Stephen Leather, Dead Men. This author is apparently very popular in prisons;
Maxine tackles another thriller - Requiem by Jack Ross set in Florida and the first in a series featuring a journalist. (As far as I'm aware the author is British)
and I review a new offering from Macmillan New Writing, the eerie Light Reading by Aliya Whiteley in which two RAF wives set off to solve the riddle of a suicide note and change their lives along the way.
