Disc 9
Going Postal (Discworld, #33) - Terry Pratchett,Stephen Briggs

"Rattle and flute."

 

"Trumpet and skittles."

 

Groat's euphemisms sure are something.

Callander Square - Anne Perry

I was right about the murderer but would never have been able to guess the exact motive.

 

I'm a little surprised that things ended so well ("happily" isn't quite the right word) for a couple of the families, considering the complicated web of scandals they lived under.

Callander Square - Anne Perry

"The emotional comfort of his home had vanished. He was living with a strange woman he discovered he did not know at all, but who knew him painfully well, and had done so for a long time. It was a very unpleasant feeling indeed."

 

No names necessary because, honestly, a lot of the husbands in this book are discovering this about their wives, even if they haven't been quite as awful as this particular husband.

 

I'm still not sure about the identity of the murderer(s). I have a guess, but it's based more on the character's personality than on any sort of evidence or even motive.

Patient Zero - Ray Porter,Jonathan Maberry

This is a zombie book starring a ridiculously competent cop-turned-FBI agent (or something - it's complicated). So far it's surprisingly boring, and I've eyerolled so hard during some of the terrorist portions. There's this mad scientist lady who is apparently so alluring that merely glancing into her eyes causes men to lose their common sense. But we're told that it isn't sexual, it's just the power of her personality. But also it is sexual, because she's been screwing at least two men's brains out, her husband and the guy her husband is working with.

 

::sigh:: I'm not looking forward to the moment she and the main character meet. I'm sure he'll simultaneously loathe her and find her attractive.

I have a guess as to what happened with one of the dead babies, but I haven't been able to think of a way the second dead baby could be related. Maybe it isn't. After all, there are at least a couple separate pregnancy scandals going on in the book's present.
