There are 3 superb serial killer novels.
Jan Burke....................Bones
Donato Carrisi
                          ..........The Whisperer

And the serial killer novel that is the bar, the level on which all are now balanced.
The Anniversary Man by RJ. Ellory.

RJ has done it again, with his new novel
'Bad Timing'
A stunning work that evokes an era with startling accuracy, and for a novel with so much darkness, it has moments of deep heart wrenching compassion.
This is the big novel of the year, the epic and pure entertainment to boot.
And on entertainment and fine writing
Bill Crider is me book of choice as I start German Tour tomorrow, Bill and Len Wanner.
Call it double indemnity.


  1. A Quiet Belief In Angels is a book that love.

  2. Thanks for the skinny on The Anniv Man.

  3. Thanks for the tip. I'll keep Ellory on my radar.

  4. Mr Bruen

    Purchased and read a copy of Headstone on this long rainy Melbourne day. A bloody masterpiece! Fast, funny, dark, twisty, powerful stuff. In other words standard Ken Bruen!

    And thanks for the shout out. Made me spill me tea. Literally.
