July reviews

A relatively slow month of reading. I spent most free time either writing dictionary entries or the new novel. My read of the month was Crime Always Pays by Declan Burke. A screwball noir to savour. His new novel - Absolute Zero Cool - is out August 10th and I'll hopefully have a review up by mid-month. Looking forward to getting my hands on it.
