What are you currently reading?
I just started The Rose Rent by Ellis Peters. It is Brother Cadfael's thirteenth chronicle. I read Ellis Peters Monk's-Hood which features herbologist detective Brother Cadfael before and I liked it. This story takes place in 1142.
What did you just recently finish reading?
I finished Blue Heaven by C. J. Box and the Yellow Claw by Sax Rohmer. Blue Heaven is a thriller. Twelve year old Annie, and ten year old William watch an execution in the woods. The killers identify the kids and are watching their home. They have nowhere to go. How long will they survive in the woods? Where will they go? Will anybody help them? A roller coaster ride with bad cops and some good guys. A great thriller.
Yellow Claw by Sax Rohmer is a mystery featuring French detective Gaston Max. A strange woman is killed in the apartment of writer Henry Leroux in London. There is a paper with the name Mr.King in her hand. Who is Mr. King? Who killed the woman? Why is Gaston Max a French detective investigating this case in London? Of Chinamen and opium dens. Didn't expect to be so caught up with the book. I even had a nightmare about a locked room and a golden dragon. A good thriller. Now I will have to read the next book in the series, Golden Scorpion.
What do you think you'll read next?
I am still planning to read Violets are Blue by James Patterson which is a sequel to Roses are Red. I am also planning to read Vault by Ruth Rendell. Vault is the latest book by Ruth Rendell featuring Inspector Wexford.
