Thanks for that, you git. Actually I enjoyed the Crais (which i've
reviewed for Tangled Web) but got something called "The Return" for
Crimetime which included the following sentence:
"He'd never before changed his features in front of his victims,
facially transmogrifying into the person he'd been when they'd caused
him harm. He did it now, in front of the mirror, sniggering in was horrifying. Staggeringly, numbingly
Boy, oh, boy did i facially transgrify when i read that!
The other one I got was called "Darkness Peering" which, for a first
book, is pretty good. By Alice Blanchard and I'm enjoying it.
Also, related to this subject (weren't you told off about that?)

...check out a No Exit book called "Lie in the Dark" by Dan
Feesperman (due out in July) based in Sarajevo. Very good indeed and,
depite the fear this list has of politics, makes the point that crime
books can deal with serious political issues..........I know you'll
agree Ed Man. Of course, there is absolutely nothing political about
all these books we discus, now is there?
