Monday Mailbox is hosted this month by Mrs. Q Book Addict.
I received one book this week, an ARC from Titan:
by Ariel S. Winter
This is Winter's debut novel, due out from Hard Case Crimes via Titan Books next month.
Here's the description from Hard Case Crime's website:
...written in the form of three separate crime novels, each set in a different decade and penned in the style of a different giant of the mystery genre.
The body found in the gutter in France led the police inspector to the dead man’s beautiful daughter—and to her hot-tempered American husband.
A hardboiled private eye hired to keep a movie studio’s leading lady happy uncovers the truth behind the brutal slaying of a Hollywood starlet.
A desperate man pursuing his last chance at redemption finds himself with blood on his hands and the police on his trail...
Three complete novels that, taken together, tell a single epic story, about an author whose life is shattered when violence and tragedy consume the people closest to him.
I also managed to churn out three reviews this week:
The Orphanmaster, by Jean Zimmerman
The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, by Seth Grahame-Smith (For the record, I've now seen the film, and the film was ten times better than the book, which is not something one can say often).
