Last Reviews of July

Here are this week's new reviews and a final reminder of July's contests:

Latest Reviews:

In Mike Ripley's July round-up, he reviews 'Still Waters' by Nigel McCrery, 'Little Moscow' by Mick Scully, 'Not in the Flesh' by Ruth Rendell and 'Lost Light' by Alex Scarrow; Laura Root's debut review for Euro Crime is of Written in Bone by Simon Beckett which she calls entertaining and insightful; Fiona Walker provides a thoughtful analysis of Ake Edwardson's style in her review of Frozen Tracks; Maxine Clarke enjoys Kate Ellis' The Bone Garden where the 'historical mystery casts light on the motive for present-day Devon murders' and I review a novel which is interesting and evocative but borderline crime fiction - Troubling Love by Elena Ferrante

I've also updated the "News" page, except for this weekend's reviews and I've again refreshed the "New releases" page.

Win one of three sets of the complete (thirteen) Chronicles of Matthew Bartholomew by Susanna Gregory (UK only)
