New Reviews: Burdess, Cotterill, Edwards, Fossum, McAuley, Meyer

Here are this week's new reviews and details of the competitions:

Latest Reviews:

Terry Halligan reviews Wendy Burdess's The Meticulous Messenger set in Revolutionary France and England, and which sounds charming;

Maxine Clarke reviews the third of Colin Cotterill's Laos based series, Disco for the Departed - which stars an ancient coroner;

Liverpool resident Laura Root gives the thumbs up for Waterloo Sunset by Martin Edwards which sees the return of Liverpudlian lawyer Harry Devlin;

Karin Fossum's departure from her Inspector Sejer series, Broken, is not strictly a crime novel but Fiona Walker writes that it "is certainly a novel of suspense";

Amanda Gillies reviews the paperback edition of Players by Paul McAuley and highly recommends it

and though not Euro Crime, it is translated crime, I review the audio book of the latest from Deon Meyer - Devil's Peak - an engrossing tale coupled with an award-winning narrator in Saul Reichlin.

I enjoyed reading these reviews. I particularly liked Fiona's review of Broken, as I've read the book too, and appreciated her take on it. Similarly, I enjoyed Laura's take on Waterloo Sunset, another book from this batch I've read and enjoyed.
