Thanks matey, very good of you to hosts us (again) - :)
I've got one this week: Murder on Astor Place by Victoria Thompson
It might help if I gave you the link. http://carstairsconsiders.blogspot.com/2016/06/book-review-murder-on-astor-place-by.html
Not at all, Sergio, and thank you. And at least you're rid of Cameron, though I fear you might be "gaining" Johnson.
Thanks, Mark! Addresses always useful, though I suspect I would've found it.
Here's mine, Todd:
Return to Rainbow Country by William Davidson, a novel in which Lois Maxwell is cast as someone's willowy-figured mother.
Ha! Thanks. Among other things, I had't realized PaperJacks existed in Canda before its brief, doomed run in the US...most importantly, by me, with its run of Bill Pronzini paperbacks.
Not at all, Jack...thank you.
