The following reviews have been added to the review archive over on the main Euro Crime website.
New Reviews:

Maxine Clarke reviews A Place of Safety by Helen Black and concludes that she was "impressed by the author's commitment and her ability to tell a good story while maintaining a clear moral voice";

Laura Root reviews the second book from French sisters "Claude Izner" who continue their tour of Paris's tourist sites with The Pere Lachaise Mystery;

Amanda Gillies was disappointed with what she felt was the poor execution of a great idea in Michael Parker's The Devil's Trinity

and Michelle Peckham reviews the paperback edition of Bleeding Heart Square by Andrew Taylor writing that it's "a hugely enjoyable book, in which the many different threads, and rich detail, are skilfully woven together".
Previous reviews can be found in the review archive and forthcoming titles can be found here.

I enjoyed these reviews, Karen - I think I have a copy of Bleeding Heart Square, courtesy of CrimeFicReader, to read so only skimmed that one. Seems to be a nice variety of genres in this week's batch.
