Hi mystery fans! I started watching the new season of Lucifer on Netflix (they saved the show after its Fox cancellation) and wow, it feels like it should have always been on Netflix. If you like procedurals, Tom Ellis, and fantasy mixed into our real world there are four marathonable seasons.

Sujata Massey returns with a new Perveen Mistry historical mystery set in India following 2018’s award-winning The Widows of Malabar Hill. India, 1922: What begins as a trip to mediate a dispute between maharanis in the distant mountain province of Satapur quickly turns sinister when Perveen Mistry, Bombay’s first female lawyer, finds herself caught in a viper’s nest of cold-blooded power players settling ancient scores.

The 2019 Anthony Award nominations were announced and that’s a real fine list of great crime books. So many great books and authors I love on that list!
City of the Lost (Rockton #1) by Kelley Armstrong is $2.99! (A very good start to a very good series for procedural, mystery, remote setting, and thriller fans.) (TW stalking/ suicide/ rape/ pedophile)
From my TBR list: A Deadly Cambodian Crime Spree (Inspector Singh Investigates #4) by Shamini Flint is $3.99!
A Bit Of My Week In Reading
Currently reading: Borrowed Time by Tracy Clark (I love this Chicago set P.I series that nods at the classics while being modern and fresh); Necessary People by Anna Pitoniak (Sucked into this wallflower and rich social butterfly friend/enemy suspense. Also, obsessed with the cover image which is really why I picked the book up in the first place.)
And my crime break: Erin Morgenstern’s The Starless Sea (Let me just say her brain is so unique and beautiful I want to lick it. No you’re weird! Anyway I’m only 20% into this and I’m obsessed with it and while it’s totally different from The Night Circus it’s making me feel like I did when I read it.)
