Thumbs up Police procedurals set in modern Greece

I enjoyed reading MURDER IN MYKONOS (2009) by Jeffrey Siger so much that I'm now reading his second book ASSASSINS OF ATHENS (2010). Both crime fiction books are police procedurals set in modern-day Greece.

Read "People of the Lie" Scott Beck to know more than you want to about psychopaths.

I'm in the middle of Sue Grafton's alphabet murders. On L have M,N.O,Q,S,and T waiting. I know. P and R are not there. I read them first since they were given to me by friends. After reading them, I had to go back and start at the beginning!

I've been reading a series of silly, para/noir/fantasy/detective novels by a fellow named Jim Butcher. The series really defies classification, they're old school Dashiel Hammet-esque detective novels that center on a modern day wizard. I know, sounds ridiculous, but they're really kind of fun. Collectively, they're called The Dresden Files.

Love Harry Dresden! There is a short story collection just out with a Harry Dresden story, the book is called "Mean Streets." The other writers are: Simon R. Green (John Taylor story), Kat Richardson and Thomas Sniegoski. I haven't heard of the last two, but will be finding out about them shortly.

If you like Jim Butcher, you should like Simon R. Green's Nightside series with John Taylor.

Had a monster read-a-thon these last few weeks. Read Jodi Picoult's My Sisters Keeper (finally!), Poor Little B*tch Girl - Jackie Collins (Good light reading), Mommywood - Tori Spelling (I now have a strong hate for that girl...), Joan Rivers 'Men are stupid...' and Textbook Romance by Zoe Foster.
Working at a major publisher has its perks!! :)

Just started "Mean Streets." DH is reading outloud all the funny bits of a book I read two weeks ago...they are still funny. It's from Jefferson Bass' "Bones of Betrayal." If you are a fan of CSI, check out Jefferson Bass.
