"Sixkill" by Robert B. Parker
Title/Author: “Sixkill” by Robert B. Parker
Rating: 5++ out of 5
WV Reader Review: Unfortunately this is the last Spenser novel as the author died in January 2011. It is worth going back to the 1st one. The TV series “Spenser for Hire” was based on these books. The dialogue is fast and witty. The plot is very creative. The characters are great. There is a love story between Spenser and Susan – a Harvard graduate PhD psychologist – and he a gumshoe. Fast and fun read. I will mis his books.
"Lucifer's Tears" by James Thompson

WV Reader Review: James Thompson is an ex-pat living in Finland. His Finnish detective, descriptions of Finnish life and thumbnail sketch of Finnish history during WWII make this mystery a solid read.
