Many New Things. Package 2 of 3.


Midnight in Europe by Alan Furst.  More excellent European espionage in 1938.

Mr. Merecdes by Stephen King.  Megan Abbott wrote a review

Euphoira by Lily King.  Huh, this King lives in Maine.  I don't think there is a connection unless it's one of Tabitha and Stephen King's kids or kids-in-law.  Anthropologists in 1930s New Guinea.  Sounds neat as lonely scientists are wearying of their work.

The Vacationers by Emma Straub.  Former Wisconsinite writes another novel.  A family on vacation in Mallorca bring their problems along.

Vertigo 42 by Martha Grimes.  What color is that sweater Grimes is wearing in her author photo?  Violet?  Pink?  Pink-Violet?  Mauve?  It's a nice color but I should cannot name it.

The Keeper by John Lescroart.  I can name Lescroart's shirt colors.  Grey and black.  Because the author photo is black and white.

Summer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch.  Famous actor dies on operating table and the doctor tells tale of doctor's bad vacation in France at actor's home.

China Dolls by Lisa See.  Ethnic Chinese women meet in 1939 San Francisco.  Lisa See wore blue and white for her photo.

The Farm by Tom Rob Smith. Adult child is split between his father and mom and father says mom is psychotic and mom says dad is a villain.

A Shiver of Light by Laurell K. Hamilton. Same photo for Hamilton.  She is dressed in black and sitting sideways in a director's chair.  One over the knew, high-heeled boot is kicked up high.


Tequila Sunset by Sam Hawken.  Crime novel set in Ciudad Juarez.  I read the first in the series and it was fairly decent. 

Strangling on the Stage by Simon Brett.  Brett's books have been big here.
