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).
The Orphan Master is on my list of reads.ReplyDelete
