I'm reading the hugely enjoyable The Killing Of Emma Gross by Damien Seaman. Hopefully after his sterling work at CrimeFest in Bristol recently he'll finally get a proper publishing deal as this book deserves it- and he's a thoroughly nice chap-and oh- very handy if you need any bacon smuggled abroad :0)

Stephen King's Dark Tower series. Bought the new one when it was released and thought I might as well read the previous seven again as well. I am currently half way through Wolves of the Calla. Brilliant series of books. Also worth a look if you do not like King's 'typical' horror novels.

I'm just starting POACHER (Sam Jenkins Trilogy) by Leon Mare, which is currently free at the moment. It is the first book in the series.

Am 75% through Hilary Mantel's Bring up the Bodies (sequel to Wolf Hall) and am absolutely gripped by her narrative. Her interpretation of Mark Smeaton's interrogation by Thomas Cromwell was chilling - I could feel the draught under the door, the smell of the fire in the grate and the creak of the floorboards - had the strong feeling I was there in the room.

Am hooked by this writer and have since downloaded several more of her novels.

I am now working my way the Inspector George Gently novels. Written in the 1950s I think, good old fashioned detective work complete with trilby and pipe. Nothing like the TV series starring Martin Shaw.

I have just downloaded The Blue Notebook Mia, after reading your info, these disscussions help to keep seniors, such as me upto date with what is happening in the world. I have never heard of James Levine, but after looking at his list of books, will be reading some of them.

About a third of the way through To the Grave: A Genealogical Crime Mystery #2 (Jefferson Tayte) - Steve Robinson's second novel. Don't think I'm going to get much housework done today!

Jill, Housework? Not when you can choose Steve's great book instead :-) I assume you read his first book which introduced us to JT? In the Blood: A Genealogical Crime Mystery #1 (Jefferson Tayte)
I am now looking forward to the next one which I am assured is already in progress :-) It will be on my Christmas Wish List that's for sure :-) Have a lovely day reading a great book :-)x

@ Lilian - yes, I loved the first book and had to pace myself with book 2 so I could start it at the weekend! Work gets in the way of my reading during the week!

Since finishing the gripping Bring up the Bodies - cannot wait for the next (final?) book - have read Fludd by Hilary Mantel. A completely different type of book - slightly surreal, slightly supernatural - which I couldn't put down once the story and characters took hold. There were suspicions about one of the characters who I warmed to despite this. Have three more Mantel's on my Kindle but decided to take a break - this hasn't worked out as I really want to be part of the worlds she creates so have put aside my charity shop tree books and will delve into A Place of Greater Safety during these bleak, cold "summer" days.

Stel.."Not like the TV series"

Is that in a good way?...I couldn't get on with the TV version, felt Martin Shaw's voice was all wrong if you know what I mean!...Like him though.

I have just finished
Never Buried: Leigh Koslow Mystery Series, Book 1

Enjoyed it and something I could read on the bus for 15 minutes.

Just started
Moon Over Soho: PC Grant Book 1 (Rivers of London 2)

Have read part 1 and will read number 3 at some point too.

I'm about 25% in to When The Cherry Blossoms Fall
I'm undecided whether or not to delete it or carry on reading....just in case it improves! It's not the story, it's just so badly edited and if it had a proofreader they need sacking! So many errors....it seems the author is aware of 'big' words but has no idea about the context in which to use them! There are words missing, so the reader is obliged to 'think' the word, and the wrong use of words changes the meaning of a sentence which means it has to be read twice to get the sense of it! Trouble is, the storyline is set during WWII in Liverpool (Bootle) and would normally be my type of book, but it's slowly driving me nuts:-) x

I am reading The Tyrannicide Brief by Geoffrey Robertson Q.C. Its the story of John Cooke the barrister who was prosecutor against King Charles I during the English Civil War era. He was the only barrister brave enough to take on board such an important and life threatening role at this time in history. King Charles I crime was at the time "Tyranny". The death of fellow Englishmen.
A true account and fascinating read on such a momentous time in history. The punishment for treason against the King, or even to disobey the King at the time, was Hanged Drawn and Quartered, in public which was a gruesome vision.
A must read for Law studentsThe Tyrannicide Brief: The Man Who Sent Charles I to the Scaffold

To me 'The Leopard' means this - The Leopard: Revised and with new material (Vintage Classics) so I was quite surprised when I clicked on your link!!!

I have added that to my wish list - sounds interesting.

For anyone who likes social history - there is a new book out today about divorce in the nineteenth century and how women succeeded in getting the law changed so that they didn't always lose custody of their children in the event of divorce. The Criminal Conversation of Mrs Norton It's a bit expensive at the moment but I'm sure it will come down in price. For anyone who enjoyed this Mrs Robinson's Disgrace: The Private Diary of a Victorian Lady this will be worthwhile getting.

Litigators (John Grisham) has dropped in price to the more reasonable 4.99 in line with the paperback price so I have purchased.

Why Don't We Do It in the Road? - very funny book with a serious side about life in the late Sixties. The author was apparently an art student at the time, so I guess this is fairly autobiographical. I'm enjoying it.

Sorry Damaskcat! This Jo Nesbo book is my favourite one so far and I hope it's not too grim! :)

I'm reading The Glass Apple, which was recommended on the forum. Enjoying it so far, but only 10% into it.
