The Daughter of TIme
The Daughter of Time - Josephine Tey

Scotland Yard Inspector Alan Grant lies in the hospital with a broken leg and he is utterly bored. Since Grant has the ability to judge a character from a persons look, he takes a look at a photograph of Richard III, who is supposed to have killed his two nephews, the princes in the towers. He immediately becomes interested in the mystery of the past. Has Richard III. really commited the crime?

 

I didn´t know anything about this book when I started reading it and I have to admit, this novel took me by suprise. I have never read a book before, where someone is solving a mystery by doing extensive research in books. And it is not even boring. I felt utterly compelled by this book the whole way through.

 

I have to admit, though, that I would have enjoyed this novel more if I would have known more of the Plantagenets and their history. Which means I will revisit this book as soon as I have brushed up on my historical knowledge.

 

I´ve read this book for the historical mystery square and it was a perfect read for this square.

"Mischief's Mayhem" by Deidra D. S. Green

 

My Thoughts....

 

Well as one can see these mysteries .... continue....with Anna Black still in prison ...however will she be able to  go to trial after what has gone on with her?  Continuing on what will we find with Grace Pembroke Wetherby[Baby Doll Killer] still doing her thing time around, however, it looks like she has been caught by none other than ?  Now, in this read we get some new characters...Major and Mayven who are causing havoc across the state lines with their killings. Who are these two and why are they on this killing spree?  Now, I don't want to leave out how hard Dr. Daniels and Detective Phillips are still trying to piece these murders all together, however, it seems like they maybe getting some more help with there cases.  All in all to know what all has gone on in this series  you will have to pick up not only "Mischief's Mayhem" but the other two installments in The Chloe Daniels Mysteries to fully understand what has gone on with each of these very captivating main characters[Anna Black, Grace Pembroke Wetherby and Major & Mayven].  So, I starting my next read of this series....FIT: The 4th installment in the Chloe Daniels Mysteries to get some more of this mystery read.

"Fit" by Deidra D. S. Green

 

My Thoughts...

 

Well, as we go into the 4th installment in the 'Chloe Daniels Mysteries' we have 'Fit' and all I can say is that this author gives the reader quite a captivating story that will keep you turning the pages and leave one wanting more.  In this series the reader will spend time with some interesting characters from  Mayven and Major, Anna Black, [Detective Fatima Moore] Logan Spencer...a new character, Grace Pembroke Wetherby, Detective Phillips, Dr. Daniels, [Chief Livingston], [Stanley Lucas][Wallace King & Theo Coulter] to name a few that keep your attention all the way to the end.  By the end will these serial killers still reign or will there be a 'standoff?'  Yes, we get another cliffhanger! The story is very well written and I found there seems to be so much going on with some new characters as well as old ones.  The reader will have to keep up as we are presented some more interesting things going on that will certainly be of great interest in the series.  As we go into last series 'Run'...the 5th Installment in Chloe Daniels Mysteries hopefully this series will tie this whole story all together so  that the reader will get all unanswered questions answered.

Tour de force
Ill Will - Dan Chaon

What a ride! Unsettling. Alarming. Irresistible. Riveting. Alluring. Brilliantly structured, and quite risky, but entirely accomplished.

 

Yes, it's a thriller, but so much more. And yes, we may have seen characters like this before, but not, in my experience, written such audacity.

 

Highly recommended.

Poirot Investigates
Poirot Investigates - Agatha Christie

It seems I´m not a big fan of Agatha Christie´s short stories, since they are utterly forgettable and at least two of them didn´t make sense and I couldn´t be bothered to read them again.

The reason I give this collection a three star rating in the end is the witty banter relationsship between Poirot and Hastings. The more I read about Christies character (whether it being these two or Miss Marple), the more I love them.
