Not a mystery, but one that has to do with many mysteries - A is for Arsenic: the Poisons of Agatha Christie. With her advanced training in pharmacology, Christie used poisons as weapon a lot and this book takes you through many of them, in alphabetical order, and describes how they kill, how Christie used them in fiction and how murderers used them in real life. I'm up to C is for Cyanide.

>3 Bookmarque: That sounds fascinating!

I just got my long-awaited library hold of Past Tense, the latest Jack Reacher. It's proving to be a fast read as usual.

Quiller KGB by Adam Hall. Released in 1989, prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall (which it predicts), the book and the author are inadvertently back in the news. The 13th outing for this ultimate British spy.

I just finished An Elderly Lady is Up to No Good by Helene Tursten, a five-story collection about a little old lady who solves problems in an unorthodox manner. I found it to be an oddly charming little book and I’m looking forward to trying more from this author.

Started the new year by reading the two latest Michael Connelly books - The late show and Dark sacred Night. Highly recommended. I like the new protagonist Connelly has introduced, Ballard.

Now I am working my way through Leif G W Persson Johansson and Jarnebring series - I discovered the first three books had been translated a long time ago, and ordered from the library. Currently re-reading Between summer’s longing and winter’s end.

Just finished one in a long time favourite series of mine-a Richard Jury mystery Dust by Martha Grimes

Yesterday, 8:45pm Top

I have just finished Transcription by Kate Atkinson. I liked it quite a bit particularly Atkinson's wit.

I am going to follow up by reading Beneath the Bleeding by Val McDermid. She's a favourite author but it's been quite a while since I read anything by her.
