  • great mystery set in Brittany

    I’ve read a couple of the earlier titles in Jean-Luc Bannalec’s Georges Dupin series, set in Brittany, and have enjoyed them. So I was happy to receive an ARC of Bannalec’s latest title to be translated into English – The Killing Tide. All of the elements that I’ve enjoyed in the earlier titles were present in this book as well – wonderful descriptions of Brittany and its close relationship with the ocean, great food scenes (Dupin can almost always be distracted by food, although it doesn’t seem to keep him from solving cases), and a nice mystery to be solved. I liked this book enough that I finished it over a weekend, and spent the next few days wishing I could visit Brittany. However, I did feel that this title had just a few issues that weren’t present in the earlier books. One was that the threads of the mystery seemed to be a little more random this time – I had a bit of trouble following what was leading Dupin towards the solution to the mystery. And the other was the lack of much visibility for Nolwenn, Dupin’s guide to all things Breton, who sort of reminds me of another favorite character of mine - Signorina Elettra in Donna Leon’s Brunetti series. Although Nolwenn makes cameo appearances by phone, I missed seeing more of her. All-in-all, though, neither of these things bothered me all that much, and I look forward to the next title in the series to be translated. Thanks again to Edelweiss and the publisher for the ARC, which they provided to me in exchange for an honest review. And also please keep in mind that I try to fight “star-inflation” a little bit. I reserve 5 stars for a very few of my most favorite books, ones I’m likely to read and reread time-and-again, and 4 stars is a great rating from me.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Smugglers!

    Hope, strength, futility, sadness, and long lasting fulfillment. A tale of love and hate among the Kashmiri, Muslim, and the Indian state. Reading this love story will help the rest of us to comprehend the enmity between different Muslim sects, the Hindu beliefs, and the needs and history of the people of the Kashmir. The stories of the individual women and men against the background of customs, poverty, and anger are as complex as the history of the land itself. A very moving story meant to be shared and enlighten the readers. Many thanks to Matador via NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read this ebook for free.

    Thanks for your feedback!
