Okay @nausicaa -- which do you like best? I like Josephine Tey better than Ngaio Marsh, and I only like the Miss Marple novels, not Poirot so much. Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver is not bad either. (I do like a few Poirot novels--in spite of Poirot. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd Is terrific, and Ten Liittle Indians/And Then There Were None is classic.)
Seven Severn posted a topic in Quiverfull of WordsShe died in her sleep. The cause is currently unknown. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/michelle-mcnamara-dead-writer-wife-887104?utm_source=twitter She and Patton have a 7-year old daughter, Alice. She had been working on a book about the Golden State Killer and had a blog -- True Crime Diary: http://www.truecrimediary.com/index.cfm The blog hadn't been updated for a long time due to her work on the book, but if you're into cold case murder investigations the blog is well worth the read.
mockingbird posted a topic in Quiverfull of Wordshttp://www.mugglenet.com/app/news/show/6988 She was approached about it this weekend and "confessed". Love how this coincides with Ruth's unveiling It is a crime novel called The Cuckoo's Calling and it's by "Robert Galbraith" (which supposedly means "famous stranger" but I haven't done any research to confirm that - don't doubt it though, she's clever like that). I just got a copy today which was apparently a good decision, as it was the last one in the store and the clerk said the rest had all sold earlier today, and people had been requesting it/putting it on hold. She was really confused until I explained, then freaked out, it was pretty hilarious I can't wait to read it! I enjoyed The Casual Vacancy, but it was a slow read. I hope this one has a bit of a better pace considering the genre.
