EMBRACE THE GRIM REAPER by JUDY CLEMENS
Embrace the Grim Reaper - Judy Clemens

Audiobook

I'm not sure why the main character is running because what can they actually do to her. Is it because she doesn't want to talk to them? 

I did like that she might be the hands and feet for the (view spoiler)which makes future books more interesting. I just wish she wasn't so afraid of the big confrontation that is inevitably going to happen. 

3-1/2 stars

The Black Ice
The Black Ice - Michael Connelly

This is the second book in the Harry Bosch and what can I say: I absolutely love to read these novels. They are so engaging, at some point early on in the story I just have to continue reading. Add to this the excellent descriptions of Los Angeles and Harry´s intersting life story and I become one happy reader.

Reading progress update: I've read 44 out of 269 pages.
The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club - Dorothy L. Sayers

December and especially the beginning of December is always the most busy month at my work, so the last couple of days have been exhausting. It doesn´t help that we have been seriously understaffed on Friday and I´m looking forward to an understaffed Thursday. And we are not understaffed because of a lack of employees, but because the person who makes the working schedules doesn´t know how to plan properly. So yes, I´m a bit annoyed and I didn´t feel a lot like reading. I have watched movies the last three nights in a row, something which I haven´t done in ages.

 

Anyhow, I´m reading the fourth Peter Wimsey novel. I haven´t made a lot of progress just yet, but so far I´m liking it. I like how Sayer´s takes a look at WWI war veterans and the trauma they have to deal with.

 

I planned a Bosch novel for this book task, but this book has to be my call for the Veteran´s / Armistice Day.

The Black Ice - Michael Connelly

I´m hooked. I just want to sit down and read this book, so far it´s a splendid read. The only thing that annoys me is Harry being insta-attracted to the dead cops wife. Something is wrong with that women and I cannot believe that Harry is so gullible when it comes to her.

 

Also, Connelly´s descriptions of L.A. are excellent. I‘m not sure whether I want to visit L.A. or stay the hell away from it (I´m gravitating toward the latter):

 

There was a random feel to the dark, the quirkiness of chance played out in the blue neon night. So many ways to live. And to die. You could be riding in the back of a studio´s black limo, or just as easily the back of a coroner´s blue van. The sound of applause was the same as the buzz of a bullett spinning past your ear in the dark. That randomness. That was L.A.

There was flash fire and flash flood , earthquake, mudslide. There was the drive-by shooter and the crack-stoked burglar. The drunk driver and the always curving road ahead. There were killer cops and cop killers. There was the husband of the woman you were sleeping with. And there was the woman. At any moment on any night there were people being raped, violated, maimed. Murdered and loved. There was always a baby at his mother´s breast. And, sometimes, a baby alone in a dumpster.
