My problem as a Book reviewer has always been that I’m so darn slow as a reader.
That has become an especially difficult problem to deal with this past holiday season coupled with a huge computer failure and a sudden and inconvenient change of address.
So, how have I decided to handle the current difficulties?
By taking massive action (for me) and reading and reviewing 2 books at the same time!
My first project for the New Year is Kathy Reichs “Bones Are Forever”. The Lady whose work has inspired the FOX TV series “Bones” closed 2012 with this tale of infanticide on steroids.
But is it really infanticide? For those of you who haven’t read this work yet, I’m not telling! But I can say that it’s well worth the trouble to find out.
My second project is Gus Pelagatti’s “The Wicked Wives”. Gus is a trial attorney with over 40 years of experience in that field.
“The Wicked Wives” is his first novel and I can tell you he writes his talk! The book is based on the true story of the 1938 “Philadelphia Insurance Scam Murders”.
Of course I can’t reveal the “surprise” ending, but I will definitely give you a complete synopsis and my humble opinion in the very near future. Just hang in and bare with “the slow-poke”. I promise it will be worth the wait.
Well, back to the trenches.
