Reading progress update: I've read 11%.
Every Dead Thing - John Connolly

As she touched me, I heard and felt, deep within myself, the blade cutting, grating, separating muscle from joint, flesh from bone, soul from body, the artist working on his canvas; and I felt pain dancing through me, arcing through a fading life like a lightning flash, welling like the notes of a hellish song through the unknown girl in th Louisiana swamp. And in her agony I felt the agony of my own child, my own wife, and I was certain that this was the same man. Even as the pain faded to its last for the girl in the swamp, she was in darkness and I knew he had blinded her before he killed her.

"Who is he?" I said.

She spoke, and in her voice there were four voices: the voices of a wife and daughter, the voice of an old obese woman on a bed in a wine-dark room, and the voice of a nameless girl who died a brutal, lonely death in the mud and water of a Louisiana swamp.

"He is the Travelin´ Man."


11% into the book and I´m hooked. This book is dark, creepy, mysterious, brutal and utterly compelling. I have to devote a considerable amount of time to it tomorrow.

Dead Wrong
DEAD WRONG a gripping detective thriller full of suspense - HELEN H. DURRANT

Dead Wrong introduces us to detectives Calladine & Bayliss in the start of a new series of police procedurals. A lot has been said and done in that genre so it is difficult to stay original but they make nice quick reads.

The balance is a little bit too much towards the personal life of Calladine, which couldn't really interest me. The case was not that complicated but kept my interest. I've got some other books in the series as well, and will read them at some time.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

The Walking Dead Compendium 2, Kirkman/Adlard/Rathburn
The Walking Dead, Compendium 2 - Robert Kirkman

This stuff is like a slab of chocolate...a really, really, BIG slab of chocolate. It's OK until you start it, then it gets really difficult to stop chomping through it until it's gone...even though you know it would be wiser to quit now and save some for later...


...also, Rick is a psycho.

Reading progress update: I've read 700 out of 800 pages.
The Walking Dead, Compendium 2 - Robert Kirkman

This stuff is like sugar...just can't stop eating it. The whole Terminus arc is missing...did they invent that one solely for TV?

Kill Your Darlings - Yellow Team (Round 4)
A Man Lay Dead: Inspector Roderick Alleyn #1 - Ngaio Marsh




I'm playing the Victim card today for Dr. John Watson for his peer Dr. Foma Tokareff- a Russian physician with ties to a secret society known as the Brotherhood. His affiliations with the Brotherhood made him prime suspect in the murder of one of the house guests in A Man Lay Dead.
