Here are this week's new reviews, website updates and a competition reminder:
Laura Root reviews The Officer's Prey by Armand Cabasson from newish publisher, Gallic Books;
Maxine Clarke reviews the Dagger winning Raven Black by Ann Cleeves set at New Year, which she feels is very atmospheric but a bit lacking in the detecting department at times;
I had to stifle my giggles on the train whilst listening to Back to Bologna by the late and much lamented Michael Dibdin. This tenth entry finds Zen in a French (well Italian) farce and is brilliantly narrated by Michael Tudor Barnes;
Terry Halligan is impressed by the latest Roy Grace book, now in paperback, by Peter James - Not Dead Enough
and Maxine recommends sticking with Adrian McKinty's Dead I Well May Be as later events "move the book into a post-Godfather odyssey".
