April reviews

April was a big month of reading and reviewing with twelve books. And it was a good reading month as well with three five star reads. After a bit of reflection, my book of the month is Caught Stealing by Charlie Huston. A very accomplished debut novel that rattles along like a tilt-a-whirl.

The Big Short by Michael Lewis ***.5
Still Life by Louise Penny ***.5
The Swiss, The Dead and The Gold by Jean Ziegler ***
The Cutting Crew by Steve Mosby ****
Devil Red by Joe Lansdale ****.5
Slow Burn by G.M. Ford ***
30 For a Harry by Richard Hoyt ***.5
The Rainy City by Earl Emerson ***.5
Caught Stealing by Charlie Huston *****
Ghost Mountain Boys by James Campbell *****
Beyond Hitler's Grasp by Michael Bar-Zohar ***
Secret Dead Men by Diane Swierczynski *****

A memorable month for me too. But five of the six books were literary rather than crime.
