    Story

    The Tamuli is a good series if you can get beyond the clumsy pronunciation of some words by the narrator - however, in this book I particularly loved the way he portrayed the Trolls - what fun! Favorite characters still appear, heroes wrestle with the bad guys and somehow succeed despite the odds - all the usual elements of this genre are there. I didn't want the story to end.

    Detective Constable Janet Scott is subtle and reliable, a diplomatic thinker with a wry sense of humor. She’s put in the time and seen it all, but has no desire for the boss’s job - she loves her own too much. Rachel Bailey couldn’t be more different - she’s energetic, impulsive, and ambitious, and has just been transferred to the Manchester murder squad.

    Story

    I do hope that this is the first in a series! The narration is excellent. Three compelling women are the main characters ... All are very human...they have flaws, problems and troubles from their pasts - but they are strong, effective detectives. The story line is good, but the strength of this book is the tightly woven way that the author reveals who these women are and their back stories. I want to meet them again and see how their lives unfold, so..... More please.

    International superstar Jussi Adler-Olsen, with more than fourteen million copies of his books sold worldwide, returns with the fourth book in his New York Times best-selling Department Q series, about a perplexing cold case with sinister modern-day consequences. In 1987, Nete Hermansen plans revenge on those who abused her in her youth, including Curt Wad, a charismatic surgeon who was part of a movement to sterilize wayward girls in 1950s Denmark.

    Story

    This is a great series, I thoroughly enjoy the humor, the characters and of course the carefully crafted thrilling plots. Carl, cynical, sardonic and oh so human, the mysterious and totally lovable Assad, loopy Rose and her alter egos, tortured Hardy and all the regular cast are here … and they dive into the ugly and shocking world of eugenics - past and present. Yes about two thirds of the way through the foreshadowing of 'whodunnit' is there - but that does not take anything away from the story. I can hardly wait for the next time we visit Carl et al - because Adler-olsen makes you care about them all!

    Perhaps best known for his No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith delights fans around the world with his warmhearted 44 Scotland Street novels. In the series’ sixth entry, the residents of 44 Scotland Street grapple with problems both trivial and severe, but none so great as when six-year-old Bertie Pollock - who longs to be seven - mislays his mum and learns a valuable lesson about wish fulfillment.

    Oh how I revel in the daily lives of the folk who live in the vicinity of Scotland Street! Poor benighted Bertie dealing with his horrific mother and demonstrating great insight into baby Ulysses' allergic reaction to her, insecure Matthew (How will he and Elspeth ever cope? Hopefully AMS will tell us in another episode soon), Cyril - the wonder dog, Angus, Domenica, and of course the indomitable Big Lou - how I enjoy them all. Full of gentle wit and cutting humor both, this book is a delight so cleverly written, as are all in this series.

    Peter Diamond, head of Bath CID, takes a city break in Vienna, where his favorite film, The Third Man, was set, but everything goes wrong, and his companion, Paloma, calls a halt to their relationship. Meanwhile, strange things are happening to jobbing musician Mel Farran, who finds himself scouted by methods closer to the spy world than the concert platform. The chance of joining a once-famous string quartet in a residency at Bath Spa University is too tempting for Mel to refuse. Then a body is found in the city canal, and the only clue to the dead woman’s identity is the tattoo of a music note on one of her teeth.

    In the middle of a rainy Swedish summer, a little girl is abducted from a crowded train. Her distraught mother was left behind at the previous station in what seemed to be a coincidence. The train crew was alerted and kept a watchful eye on the sleeping child. But when the train pulled into Stockholm Central Station, the little girl had vanished. Inspector Alex Recht, assisted by the investigative analyst Fredrika Bergman, are assigned to what at first appears to be a classic custody fight. But then the child is found dead....

    Story

    Ohlsson has created an interesting cast of characters in this book - with an interesting, if depressing, storyline. However, the narrator spoiled this for me - she is wonderful with the Swedish accents when reading dialogue, but why she used an affected and pompous (and at times incorrect) English accent to narrate the body of the book is beyond me - maybe it's because I am English myself and am more sensitive to this, but it may have been better if she had stuck to her native Canadian.

    A real treat! This was my first Reginald Hill and I will be on the look out for more. Tightly plotted, lots of lovely twists and turns. Characters are developed with a palette of dry, wry humor - although the male villains are treated more kindly in this than their female co-conspirators. Excellent narration, Jonathan Preeble delivers this book with skill and style. My favorite character? The dog! You'll see .....

With no clues as to the dead man's identity, Chief Inspector Karlsson again calls upon Frieda for help. She discovers that the body belongs to Robert Poole, con man extraordinaire. But Frieda can't shake the feeling that the past isn't done with her yet. Did someone kill Poole to embroil her in the investigation? And if so, is Frieda herself the next victim?

    I'm addicted - more please! In the second of the series we get to know more of the lives, trials and everyday cares and woes of the enigmatic, and oft times foolhardy Frieda, as well as her friends and colleagues in her tenuous police 'partnership'. Intriguing plot and the shadow of the psychopathic villain from the first book hovers throughout ... just scrumptious!

    Frieda Klein is a solitary, incisive psychotherapist who spends her sleepless nights walking along the ancient rivers that have been forced underground in modern London. She believes that the world is a messy, uncontrollable place. The abduction of five-year-old Matthew Farraday provokes a national outcry and a desperate police hunt. And when his face is splashed over the newspapers, Frieda cannot ignore the coincidence: one of her patients has been having dreams in which he has a hunger for just such a child.

    Abbey of Ruac, rural France: A medieval script is discovered hidden behind an antique bookcase. Badly damaged, it is sent to Paris for restoration, and there literary historian Hugo Pineau begins to read the startling 14th-century text. Within its pages lies a fanciful tale of a painted cave and the secrets it contains - and a rudimentary map showing its position close to the abbey. Intrigued, Hugo enlists the help of archaeologist Luc Simard and the two men go exploring.
