August reviews

A fairly varied month of reading.  The two stand out books were Hypothermia by Arnaldur Indridason and Dead I May Well Be by Adrian McKinty.  Two very different books and difficult to decide which one is book of the month, so I'm going with the pair.  Both worth a read.  Which reminds me, I need to get the next book in the McKinty series.  Flip, should have had that in the last order.

Hypothermia by Arnaldur Indridason *****
Dead I May Well Be by Adrian McKinty *****

McKinty's "Dead" series is one of my favorites. I have a thing for Michael Forsythe.
