A Baker's Dozen: Unknown Authors 2017

I purchased a number of books from the World Book Fair at Delhi. Predictably, a majority of them were crime/ mysteries. Some of the authors and books, I had heard about but never read but there were quite a few totally unfamiliar to me. Have you read these books or authors? What do you think of them?

  1. You got me, Neeru. I haven’t read any of these books. But I have read some other books by Lescroart and Winspear.

  2. You got some treasures there, Neeru. Greenwood, Winspear, Castillo, are all very talented authors. And I hear good things about Hewson, too. I hope you'll enjoy these!

  4. I have read the first few books in the Maisie Dobbs series by Winspear, and I got tired of them. A lot of people really like the series, I think I am in the minority. I read the first book by Hakan Nesser (same series as The Return) and I really liked it. Other than that I have no experience of these writers. I do want to read something by Kerry Greenwood and Joseph Kanon.

    1. Thanks Tracy. Winspear was described in the blurb as female Alexander McCall Smith. That didn't impress me much:). Hope this book by Nesser turns out to be nice too.
