Seven Novels at Seven and a Half Inches Tall


Wicked Craving by G.A. McKevett. Must be a cooking mystery because there is a caramel apple on the cover with the handle tied in a bow.

Cape Greed by Sam Cole. Crime novel set in Cape Town, South Africa. I just read a good mystery set in S.A., Blood Safari by Deon Meyer. There have been a handful of well received crime novels set in S.A over the past couple years. Maybe S.A. is the new Sweden in crime fiction.

I've read that the violent crime level in South Africa is freaking insane. I don't know if that is true but it should generate plenty of fiction.

Flirt by Laurell K. Hamilton. Vampire killing and sex. Or something like that.

Blood Ties by Kay Hooper. The FBI's Special Crimes Unit follow after a serial killing sniper in Tennessee.

Worst Case by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge. "Only detective Michael Bennett can stop the most ingenious killer in New York history." Do people even read the description of Patterson plots? Don't they just buy them, read them, and stick them in a pile?

Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah. I am not interested enough to look at what this is about.

Wake Up Dead by Roger Smith. Oh, this is another crime novel set in Cape Town, S.A. Ex-model Roxy Palmer and her gunrunner husband are violently carjacked. The carjackers come after Roxy as do a mercenary owed money and the jailhouse "husband" of one of the carjackers.
