New Reviews: Blake, Booth, Granger, Hayder, Indridason, Miller, Peterson, Robertson, Zeh

I'm back after a few days in the Lake District. It was very wet!

Here is a new set of 9 reviews:

(NB. Don't forget to vote in the International Dagger Polls.)

Several of Nicholas Blake's Nigel Strangeways titles have just been reissued by Vintage and we'll be reviewing them, starting with The Beast Must Die reviewed here by Amanda Gillies;

Susan White reviews Stephen Booth's twelfth Cooper & Fry novel, Dead and Buried set in Derbyshire;

Rich Westwood reviews the fourth in Ann Granger's Victorian series: A Particular Eye for Villainy;

Sarah Hilary reviews Mo Hayder's standalone Hanging Hill which is now out in paperback;

Maxine Clarke reviews Arnaldur Indridason's Black Skies, tr. Victoria Cribb in which Sigurdur Oli takes the lead role;

Terry Halligan reviews Danny Miller's follow-up to Kiss Me Quick, The Gilded Edge set in 1965 London;

Lizzie Hayes reviews Mark Peterson's debut Flesh and Blood set in Brighton and introducing DS Minter;

Please welcome Waterstones bookseller and reviewer JF to the Euro Crime review team. Here she reviews Craig Robertson's Cold Grave, the third in his Glasgow-set series

and Lynn Harvey reviews Juli Zeh's intriguing The Method, tr. Sally-Ann Spencer which is not a crime novel as such but "a "what-if" novel".
Previous reviews can be found in the review archive.

Forthcoming titles can be found by author or date or by category, here along with releases by year.

Excellent set of reviews, Karen. I really loved "Black Skies". I remember enjoying those Nicholas Blake novels years ago.....I remember the one Amanda reviews too well, though!

There is a direct relationship between a raving review of a new book by Arnaldur Indridason and my credit card bill.

Need I say more?
