Hip Deep in Alligators -- Err, Cats, Dogs, Koalas?

Clea Simon
As usual, the gaps on this blog are the times when I'm reading like mad, and thinking about what I've consumed. I found Sandra Parshall's BROKEN PLACES to be much darker than I expected, and well written; I'll pull together more of a write-up later in the week. Clea Simon's DOGS DON'T LIE won't come out until next April, but the author kindly sent along an early advance copy, and it was great fun! Check out her web site, which includes some cute critter pix, too. And I'm almost done with Betty Webb's THE KOALA OF DEATH. All three books feature active animals and fascinating interactions.

Also on the front burner this week: ordering copies of RED HERRING (another live one!) for Archer Mayor's event here on Saturday Oct. 23 at 2 p.m. Wonder whether we need to add another case ... make sure you let us know how many signed copies you'd like of this terrific new Joe Gunther volume: kingdombks@gmail.com.

Thanks, Beth! Dogs Don't Lie is the first in a new series, which I'm calling "pet noir." And I really am updating my website to include it ... soon soon....
