If you're over here on ::Acquired Taste you're probably already familiar with my novels, but you may be less so with Matt's. If you have a Kindle, why not get both books, and still have change from the price of most paperbacks and ebooks.
Things have been quiet over here lately. Unfortunately that doesn't mean I have a new novel ready for you all. Instead I've been preoccupied with some major family health issues which have taken most of my time away from writing. Instead my leisure time has been spent reading (never a bad thing for a writer on sabbatical to be doing) and trying to decide which of my nebulous ideas I will start fleshing out when I return to writing at full speed.
My book of the year so far, for those looking for something to read, is Phillip Kerr's Prague Fatale. It's the latest in Kerr's series of novels about Bernie Gunther, an honest cop in 1930s Berlin. The translation of this instalment to Prague reinvigorates the series, and gives us wonderful locked room mystery with a cast of real-life Nazis and a tip of the hat to Agatha Christie. Highly recommended!
