Val McDermid - Cross and Burn.

I haven't read that one yet. Is it a Hill & Jordan novel ?

Hi Neghe, yes it is.  It is Vals latest.  Was released about two or three weeks ago.  I am only 80 pages in and of course it lives up to the standard we have come to expect from the queen of crime.

The Sense of an Ending - Julian Barnes - 2011 Man Booker Award - and eminently readable.

One thing I didn't get. Will have to research - or find the movie?

Nearly finished with, Just One Evil Act, by Elizabeth George.

Then, I'll be reading Deadly Virtues, by Jo Bannister--and if the first paragraph is any indication, than it should not so bad at all.  :)
