Summer, do your worst! / Light your tinsel moon, and call on / Your performing stars to fall on / Headlong through your paper sky. ~ Dorothy Parker
As we launch into summer, I’m trying to get a handle on my reading (and review) list for the next couple of months. I know — a largely futile task. Here is a look at what I am reading now.
The stories in the collection range from police procedurals to inheritance scandals to locked-room puzzles.
Rather than a “locked room” mystery wherein the victim is found dead in a room where no one could have gotten in or out, Christie traps everyone together on a snowbound train. The victim, the suspects, and the detective are all stuck in the “locked room.” The new movie version, directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh is problematic but it was much better than the trailers led me to believe.
I am reading several things right now, though not as quickly as usual. I am also participating in NaNoWriMo again this year. Not sure why I do this to myself over and over… but here we are.
