New Reviews: B Black, S Black, Kelly, Mallo, Moss, Sherez

Two competitions for August and one is open internationally:
Win one of three sets of Lockdown and Deadlock by Sean Black (Worldwide)
Win one of five copies of Inspector Cataldo's Criminal Summer by Luigi Guicciardi, tr Iain Halliday (UK & Europe)

Here are this week's reviews, which this week aren't restricted to Europe!:
Laura Root reviews Benjamin Black's third Quirke book, Elegy for April concluding that it "is another slice of classy Emerald Noir";

Michelle Peckham reviews one of this month's competition prizes Deadlock by Sean Black, set in the US and is one for fans of fast, action thrillers;

Terry Halligan reviews the second in Jim Kelly's new Norfolk-based series, Death Watch writing that "detective fiction needs more books of this high quality";

I pop over to 1970s Argentina in Ernesto Mallo's Needle in a Haystack, tr. Jethro Soutar which is rather a bleak read;

Maxine Clarke reviews Australian author, Tara Moss's Hit which has its first UK publication

and Geoff Jones is in Greece in Stav Sherez's The Black Monastery.
Previous reviews can be found in the review archive and forthcoming titles can be found by author or date, here.

I read Jim Kelly's "Death Wore White," and thought it an intelligent and intricately-woven police procedural.

It's like a locked-room mystery outside in a vehicular gridlock in a snowstorm.

Very well done. I recommend it and will put his new one on my TBR list right away.
