Here are this week's new reviews and competitions reminder:
Fiona Walker reviews Reasonable Doubts by Gianrico Carofiglio and wishes there were more than three available; Pat Austin concludes that Charlie Parker could do with a little happiness after reading The Unquiet by John Connolly; Maxine Clarke is glad she stuck with The Princess of Burundi by Kjell Eriksson set in a wintry Uppsala; Karen Chisholm reviews The Colour of Blood by Declan Hughes which has a great sense of place and humour to balance the violence and finally, Irish author Declan Burke reviews Irish author Eoin McNamee's 12:23 which puts a fictional (?) spin on the cause of Princess Diana's fatal car crash (see below on how you can win a copy).
I've also updated the "New releases" page.
