The comparison to Trick or Treat is a bit bittersweet.
I took two tote bags, one of which was giant, and came back with a lovely haul of 26 books:
The Ambitious Stepmother- Fidelis Morgan (rec’d by Maggie, the nice redheaded owner)
The Rival Queens- Fidelis Morgan
The Intelligencer- Leslie Silbert
A Pinch of Snuff- Reginald Hill (another Maggie rec)
Except the Dying- Maureen Jennings
The Immaculate Deception- Iain Pears
The Given Day- Dennis Lehane
Powder Monkey- Paul Dowell (YA)
The Privilege of the Sword- Ellen Kushner
The Forgery of Venus- Michael Gruber
The Ship of Fools- Gregory Normton
The Quality of Mercy- Faye Kellerman (via Maggie)
Killing the Lawyers- Reginald Hill (Maggie rec’d the author)
The Death of and Irish Lover- Bartholomew Gill (via Maggie)
Rough Treatment- John Harvey (Maggie was scandalized I hadn’t heard of him)
Off Minor- John Harvey
The Poet- Michael Connelly. I’ve never read him.
Road Rage- Ruth Rendell
13 Steps Down- Ruth Rendell
The Lighthouse- PD James
The Butter Did It- Phyllis Richardson. Because foodie mystery
Death of a Gentle Lady- MC Beaton
Black Thorn White Rose edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling- fantasy short stories
Prospero’s Children- Jan Siegel- looks like decent fantasy.
The thing I will miss most about Partners and Crime is the book recommendations. Maggie asked what I like, and her recommendations look right on target.
Not that I have time to read anything but library science at the moment, but that will change.
