Maxine Clarke reviews Ann Cleeves' sequel to the Dagger winning Raven Black - White Nights writing that "the book is wonderful to read";

Maxine reviews yet another excellent Norwegian* book (*see Dahl, Fossum, Nesbo...): The Shadow in the River by Frode Grytten;
crimeficreader says that Bernard Knight's latest Crowner John mystery - The Manor of Death is "not to be missed"
