Welcome to 2022

Thank you to all the Euro Crime visitors - to the blog, the FaceBook page and/or the website - for your comments and emails, I do so appreciate them. I hope to post more regularly this year.
I'm still working on January's releases but it'll be up soon and I'll have news on the Petrona 2022 in due course as well. 

I haven't been reading lots during the pandemic so I haven't got a top ten of 2021 as such. I would point you at the Petrona 2021 shortlist and I also enjoyed The Mist by Ragnar Jonasson tr. Victoria Cribb. Other favourites from last year were The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman and Crossed Skis by Carol Carnac as part of my belated discovery of E C R Lorac.

I'm currently reading Murder on the Lusitania by Edward Marston - I own a twenty-year-old paperback copy of it from when it first came out as 'by Conrad Allen' - but am reading the just released kindle version. I also own a print version of the second book, Murder on the Mauretania, and am pleased to see that Allison & Busby are releasing all eight books in the series (at least on kindle) by June 2022.

I'm also listening to The Joy and Light Bus Company by Alexander McCall Smith narrated by Adjoa Andoh, the twenty-second in the Mma Ramotswe series, one of the few series I'm up to date with. I'm relieved to see that volume twenty-three, A Song of Comfortable Chairs, is scheduled for September.
