It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. For this meme, bloggers post what they finished last week, what they're currently reading, and what they plan to start this week. 

Well, I've been travelling and sightseeing and blogging about our trip so I have not read much of anything in the last two weeks!!

Little Girls Lost (Carson Ryder, #6)

From the book jacket:
Children are disappearing in Mobile, Alabama, the latest snatched from her own bedroom. There are no clues - and, as yet, no bodies. Homicide Detective Carson Ryder is called in to investigate the abduction of little LaShelle Shearing only to find the case getting tangled up in murky departmental and civic politics. And with his partner Harry Nautilus fighting for his life after being viciously attacked, Carson is feeling increasingly isolated. Public rage is now reaching dangerous levels, and Ryder's bosses turn for help to ex-Detective Conner Sandhill whose uncanny ability to spot connections and details missed by others is legendary - but who left the department under a cloud. Ryder and Sandhill form an uneasy alliance in the hunt for the missing children, a hunt which becomes all the more urgent for tragic personal reasons. But at the root of these disappearances is something truly evil! and its source is closer to home than either could have imagined.

I picked this up in the library on our Danube river cruise ship and it was a great read while sailing along. I had not read this author before and I really enjoyed the banter between the cops. 

The Return of the Dancing Master
When retired policeman Herbert Molin is found brutally slaughtered on his remote farm in the northern forests of Sweden, police find strange tracks in the snowÉas if someone had been practicing the tango. Stefan Lindman, a young police officer recently diagnosed with mouth cancer, decides to investigate the murder of his former colleague, but is soon enmeshed in a mystifying case with no witnesses and no apparent motives. Terrified of the disease that could take his life, Lindman becomes more and more reckless as he unearths the chilling links between Molin’s death and an underground neo-Nazi network that runs further and deeper than he could ever have imagined.

I also found this on the ship (I left two books there in exchange). I am totally engrossed in it, partly because I have just visited countries that suffered heavily under the Nazis and have heard talk of new Nazi parties rising up.

  1. One never seems to read as much on trips as one thinks one is going to!
    I have just finished reading Wolf Hall, probably one of the last people to do so.
