Another half dozen into the collection....
|A.W. Hart - The Ranger (2021) - purchased copy|
A new-to-me author. It's the first in a series. I'll see how I go before committing to more in the series. Or I could just read some of the books I already have .....
|Thomas Perry - The Left-Handed Twin (2021) - review ARC from publisher Mysterious Press|
I've loved some of Thomas Perry's work in the past (The Butcher's Boy in particular), along with a few others that haven't quite rocked me. This is the ninth entry in his Jane Whitefield series. Not a series I've tried yet, but I've heard good things about it.
|Tony Knighton - A Few Days Away (2021) - review ARC from publisher Brash Books|
|George Hesselberg - Dead Lines (2021) - Edelweiss reviewer ARC|
A book which caught my eye and one which is very different to my usual reading. Go wild and expand your horizons-time!
|Ed Church - Probably Dead (2020) - purchased copy|
Another author I've heard good things about, but haven't yet given a go. This is the second in a three book (so far) series.
|Carl Hiaasen - Skink No Surrender (2014) - Audible purchase|
One of the funniest authors alive. Skink goes YA. Who cares?
Richard's cousin is missing, and his best hope of finding her rests with the wily, one-eyed, ex-governor of Florida. Carl Hiaasen introduces his iconic character Skink to a younger audience in this nail-biting adventure!
A National Book Award Longlist Selection
Classic Malley: her parents are about to ship her off to boarding school, so she takes off with some guy she met online... Poor Richard: he's less of a rebel than Malley, and a lot less trusting. He knows his cousin is in trouble before she does. Wild Skink: he's a ragged, one-eyed, ex-governor of Florida, and enough of a renegade to think he can track Malley down. With Richard riding shotgun, this unlikely pair scour the state, undaunted by blinding storms, crazed pigs, flying bullets, and giant gators.
In Carl Hiaasen's outrageous, hilarious, and wildly dangerous state of Florida, there are a million places an outlaw might stash a teenage girl. A million unpleasant ways to die. And two who will risk everything to rescue a friend . . . and to, hopefully, exact a bit of swamp justice.
