***

I discovered Randall Silvis fairly recently and have read three of his books in a short time. He has a unique way of writing crime fiction, so I didn’t hesitate a second to read his new novel, A Long Way Down.

This is the third book in the DeMarco series, and it might be good to first read the previous two, Two Days Gone and Walking The Bones, especially as there are several references to both of them at the beginning. Plus, you can better understand the dynamic between the characters, which is an essential element in Silvis’s books—maybe even more in this one than in the others.

VERDICT: Crime fiction and borderline metaphysical. Try Randall Silvis now!

I found All is Not Forgotten and Emma in the Night to be great psychological thrillers, with good suspense, depth in characters, and excellent writing. I’m glad to present to you today The Night Before, the upcoming novel by the same author, Wendy Walker. I was lucky to win this book! Thanks to the generous publishers!

Don Quixote
For the 2nd part, I’m doing a read-along with Lory at The Emerald City. I’m sup[er super slow on this, the problem being, I read the book on the computer, as I have other books already going on 3 devices… and print of course. And all my work is already on the computer, so at the end of the day, either I’m tired of it, or I forget I need to spend more time there for Don Quixote!

If You Love Me: Serving Christ and the Church in Spirit and Truth
Wonderful book for all Christians.

The Night Before
I thoroughly enjoy this author. I have read All Is Not Forgotten and Emma in the Night.
In this one, it is so twisted, in a very good way, that so far, I don’t know if the main character is the culprit or the victim, or neither, or both!!

Talk To me
The subtitle tells you all this is about. So far, an excellent overview of the recent evolution in the field, and what’s coming.

READING NEXT

ExposedThe Sentence is Death

Exposed
This is for France Book Tours.
I have really enjoyed the author’s previous book, The 6:41 to Paris.

The Sentence is Death
This is the sequel to The Word is Murder. It should be good, just by judging by the clever titles. And this author is so amazing!

I should also be reading The Dream of the Red Chamber, by Cao Xueqin, which is my Classics Spin #20, but I still don’t know which edition I should choose!! Help please!

Sang Famille
Ah ah! Estories now has this book published last year!
I thoroughly like the suspense and twists, well as always in Bussi’s books.

J’ai dû rêver trop fort
So cool! I had to wait for a year to get the previous one on EStories, but his latest is already available! You should check EStories for your audiobook subscription – this is the only way I can listen to contemporary French novels. Cheaper than competitive companies, great app.
