In A Dry Season (An Inspector Banks Mystery) by Peter Robinson
I am reading the Inspector Banks series in chronological order and I must say this was the best yet, a thriller yes but with literary merit too. I found myself thinking about the story and its characters for several days after i had finished it.

I've devoured all McEwan's books but had read mixed reviews of this one. He is a that rare thing, a literary writer who creates completely absorbing and page turning novels. I loved the motif of the stories within the story throughout. His books are always unique and different to each other and this is no exception. I admired the way he described great sex (so different from 'On Chesil Beach' with its awkwardness) without ever descending into graphic detail, so much more erotic for its restraint. It's cleverly constructed and I found the characters believable and I am still thinking about the book several days later which is always a good thing.
Shatter the Bones (Logan McRae, Book 7) by Stuart MacBride
4.0 out of 5 stars My favourite yet, 12 May 2013
Having worked my way through the Logan Macrae books back to back this is my favourite yet. The last two were a bit too gruesome for me though I found them all page turners. Steel was slightly less irritating in this book than in the last two. I'd be really happy if she could get a diagnosis for her itching pits, and maybe some hydro-cortisone cream. Hopefully she will get caught out and sacked at some point.... SPOILER ALERT hope Sam recovers, enjoyed her character.
