Here are this week's new reviews and a reminder of this month's competition:

Latest Reviews:

Terry Halligan reviews Wendy Burdess's The Unaccomplished Lady Eleanor concluding that the author "has a real gift in her writing with uncanny descriptive detail and highly imaginative plots" (this title has recently been published in the US);

I had the pleasure of reviewing the full-cast dramatisation of Francis Durbridge's Paul Temple and the Madison Mystery released as part of the 70 year anniversary of Paul Temple;

New reviewer Michelle Peckham debuts with her review of the paperback of The Return by Hakan Nesser writing that it is "an intelligently plotted crime novel";

Amanda Gillies is very enthusiastic about Sarah Rayne's The Death Chamber which sounds very spooky;

Geoff Jones reviews Shifting Skin by Chis Simms which is set in Manchester

and Maxine Clarke continues with her odyssey through Sjowall and Wahloo's Martin Beck series, this time she reviews The Fire Engine That Disappeared which is as good as the previous four.

Current Competition:

Great set of reviews, Karen. It's particularly nice to read Michelle's. I'm delighted that she's begun reviewing for Euro Crime.
