Here are this week's new reviews and competitions reminder:
Fiona Walker explains why Karin Fossum's books are so good, in her review of Black Seconds; Maxine Clarke finds Little Criminals by Gene Kerrigan to be excellent; I have mixed views on Patrick Lennon's Corn Dolls set in the Cambridgeshire Fens; Pat Austin says that The Dead Hour by Denise Mina is well worth reading and Karen Chisholm is impressed by The Lying Tongue by Andrew Wilson.
