One Sentence Review – The Corpse With The Garnet Face by Cathy Ace @AceCathy
The Corpse with the Garnet Face (A Cait Morgan Mystery) - Cathy Ace

The Corpse With The Garnet Face by Cathy Ace is just right for the summer season.

A little mystery on the beach or while traveling is a good thing.

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

The Corpse with the Garnet Face by Cathy Ace is written along the lines of Agatha Christie, and has Cait, Bud and other quirky characters with long buried secrets searching for answers in this fun cozy, with lots of suspects to muddy the waters and keep the mystery alive.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos  3 Stars

 

GOODREADS BLURB

 

The seventh book in the Cait Morgan series finds the eccentric Welsh criminologist–sleuth accompanying her husband Bud to Amsterdam to try to unravel a puzzling situation.

 

To Bud’s surprise, he discovers he has a long-lost uncle, Jonas, who’s met an untimely death. Bud’s mother assures him Jonas was a bad child, but, from beyond the grave, Uncle Jonas begs his nephew to visit the city he adopted as his home to delve into the life he built for himself there, founded on his passion for art.

 

With an old iron key as their only clue, Cait and Bud travel to Amsterdam to solve the cryptic message left by Jonas—and to honor the final wishes of a long-lost relative.

D jak dłużnik
D jak dłużnik - Sue Grafton

Kolejny kryminał z serii Alfabet Zbrodni, gdzie główną bohaterką jest kobieta...prywatny detektyw Kinsey Millhone. 
Dostaje ona niby proste zlecenie, ale w trakcie są komplikacje. Zleceniodawca okazuje się być kimś całkiem innym i ginie w dziwnych okolicznościach. A Kinsey zostaje wciągnięta w wir wydarzeń. 
Książkę przeczytałam w jeden wieczór. Zagadka mało skomplikowana, ale dosyć ciekawa. Czyta się przyjemnie, a główna bohaterka wzbudza w czytelniku sympatię.

My co-worker warned me this went downhilll
Justice League vs. Suicide Squad (2016-2017) - Joshua Williamson,Rob Williams,Tim Seeley,Jason Fabok,Riley Rossmo,Tony Daniel,Jesus Merino,Fernando Pasarin,Robson Rocha,Howard Porter,Giuseppe Cafaro,Christian Duce

I liked the first issue, but not enough to pay like four or five bucks for every issue.   (And then I'd have to buy the Justice League tie-ins, too.)   Also, I think said co-worker was right: this went downhill.   It because a convoluted mess with an unsatisfactory ending. 

 

Perhaps if they'd done some solid character work, but they didn't do that, either. 

 

The art was pretty, though, and the Killer Croc fight against Aquaman was funny.  I also didn't hate it.   Most of this made sense up until it didn't, up until it became a sprawling mass of why is this happening?

 

Glad it's over!

This panel
All-New Inhumans (2015-) #9 - James Asmus,Stefano Caselli

 

I won't be doing this too often, but there are some panels on rereads that I'll want to share.  Or quotes.   

 

This gets me every time.   Flint's response makes me laugh and Gorgon's admission gives me all the feels.   Not only is he a paralyzed warrior who feels useless due to that fact, he's just pretty much told the lady who wants his seed/baby that he hates the hoofs that Terrigenesis gave him and that they weren't transcendent due to their transformation, but rather experiments into living weapons by a fascist, alien society.   (Her argument is that they can touch transcendence, even accidentally.   They also try to get more powerful Inhumans by a form of eugenics, believing the more powerful, the more perfect, the closer to transcendence that Inhuman gets.   Gorgon is well known as a very powerful Inhuman from another Inhuman city/society, so gorgeous women are kinda all over having his attention.   The one who tried to seduce him was just the most opportunist amongst them.)

 

Gorgon also feels like such a failure that he doesn't speak to his son, by the way.   So y'know, that was a thing the lady who wanted his baby couldn't know, but also twisted the knife in a little more for him.   So that makes his statement more tragic, and yet... I still laugh at Flint ending his statement with 'surprising?'   That question mark makes it funny for me.   

 

Like what do you say to Gorgon in that situation?   Especially since Gorgon is now on trial for his wheelchair trying to kill said lady.   (Inhumans, it should be noted, not only have very advanced technology, they've had it for years before humans did.   Like they have flying cars, y'all.   And teleporting dogs, so a little sci-fi, a little living weapons sci-fi.)  He claims he can't control the chair, but it was still his responsibility so he went in peacefully and Flint was allowed to visit Gorgon in Utolan jail.   (And I very keenly remember what happened with this storyline.   I won't spoil it for anyone who chooses to read this series.   This series, and Uncanny Inhumans, were both written by Soule and were both excellent.  I suggest them both.   Uncanny focused more on Black Bolt, and had less diplomacy and more action - and I tend to like less diplomatic more action based comics the most.   So basically Uncanny was my favorite of the two, but only because it had character and action appeal.  And there's plenty of action in All-New, just more diplomacy/less time-travel crazy comic book shenanigans that I prefer that are in Uncanny.)

 

Loving, loving this massive reread.   I've read, lesse, 13 Inhuman related comics today.

Reread this
A-Force (2016-) #1 - G. Wilson,Jorge Molina

I'll probably end up reading this in alphabetical order.  For now, this has been read.    And it was fun, with Singularity still in Battleworld mode, trying to navigate a world that's forgotten her. 

 

It's funny, and Singularity is so optimistic and bubbly and cheerful and friendly to everyone - who isn't attacking her and her friends - that I love her.
