Well January certainly had quantity if nothing else - 15 books read.
A few disappointments in particular Sakey's At The City's Edge and Twenty Major's Phoenix Park.
My first taste of Jo Nesbo and a re-read of the first Scudder book from Lawrence Block; both above average. As was Swierczynski, Spindler and Streatfeild.
A toss up for book of the month between Neil Smith and Deon Meyer, but I'll give Smith the vote because of the Somalian location. Both amazing reads though and highly recommended.
January book of the month - Anthony Neil Smith - All The Young Warriors
