NonFic and Mystery


The Highwayman by Craig Johnson. The cover says, "A Longmire story." This is 190 pages so maybe it is more of a novella.

Death at Breakfast by Beth Gutcheon. That does not sound appetizing.  Two retired women visit Maine for a 5-day cooking course. Murder happens.


The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman. The cover is fantastic. The Clark's nutcracker can hide as many as 30,000 seeds of dozens of square miles and still find them.

A Good Month for Murder: the inside story of a homicide squad by Del Quentin Wilber. I read a nice review. The author hung out with a murder squad in Prince George's County outside D.C. He focuses on February, 2013 with twelve homicides. No photos. No photos?!

Ordinarily Well: the case for antidepressants by Peter D. Kramer. This had a nice review as well. Author works at Brown Medical School. I cannot recall where Brown is located. New Jersey? Connecticut? Rhode Island? It's somewhere over there and I am too busy to look it up. (But, not too busy to ponder and type.)

Grunt: the curious science of humans at war by Mary Roach. Roach is popular. I've never read one of the books but they sound neat. A photo at the head of each chapter.
