Here are this week's new reviews and details of August's contests:
In Carla McKay's July round-up, she reviews 'Not Dead Enough' by Peter James, 'Black Seconds' by Karin Fossum, 'Rain Dogs and Love Cats' by Andrew Holmes, 'Dangerous Women' edited by Otto Penzler, 'Reasonable Doubts' by Gianrico Carofiglio and 'Die With Me' by Elena Forbes; Yvonne Klein reviews the latest in one of my favourite series, White Corridor by Christopher Fowler, starring the mismatched duo of Bryant and May; I thoroughly enjoyed the first in a new series by L M (Lee) Jackson - A Most Dangerous Woman set in 1852 and starring the resourceful coffee shop owning Sarah Tanner; Terry Halligan reviews the latest in the Mad Carew series, Hammerhead by Ken McCoy and finds it a page-turner and Maxine Clarke says that The Shadow Walker by Michael Walters has an engaging detective and is an exciting start to his Mongolian crime series.
I've also updated the "News" page, except for today's reviews, and I've also updated the "Awards" page.
