Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme started by Marcia at Mailbox Monday in which bloggers can ramble on about the books they received/bought/stole over a given week. Each month a new blogger hosts the meme, and this month it’s Suko’s Notebook.
The books, they keep a’rollin’ in. Well, “the book.” Singular. Slow week, but I guess the last MM post with the baker’s dozen o’ books more than makes up for it.
--- The Books ---
Furies by D. L. Johnstone – Not too long ago we received another book from Mr. Johnstone, a contemporary mystery/thriller called
. This one is in the same mystery/thriller
vein, except it’s set in ancient Chalk Valley
during Roman period of reign. A wealthy
merchant named Decimus Tarquitius Aculeo stumbles upon a serial killer who
moves among Alexandria ’s
aristocrats, priests, and philosophers.
And it soon becomes apparent that the string of murders are somehow
connected to Aculeo’s quest to save his mercantile empire from his many
debtors. Johnstone is a phenomenal author,
and historical mystery (in an Ancient Greek/Hellenic/Roman setting especially)
always floats this reviewer’s boat. So
And now that I’ve showed you mine, it’s time to show me yours. What did you get in your mailbox this week?
