Today's author is a debut author this year and he's making quite a splash. Todd Ritter released his first novel, DEATH NOTICE, last month. And this month he's giving his recommendation to seasoned and award-winning author, Louise Penny for her most recent installment in the Armand Gamache series, BURY YOUR DEAD. Todd has this to say about his recommendation:
"I'm reading BURY YOUR DEAD, the latest Chief Inspector Gamache mystery by Louise Penny. All of her books would make great gifts for those who like their mysteries elegant, complex, witty and brutally insightful. She's become a must-read in my house, even though her talent and personal charm make me green with envy."
Well said, Todd!
To compliment Todd's recommendation, I'm going to recommend ROLLING THUNDER, the sixth book in the John Ceepak series from Chris Grabenstein. If you enjoy books with Sherlockian-type characters, fused with good old-fashioned humor you'll likely enjoy the Ceepak series. The plots are smart and complex; the characters authentic and rich...including that Officer Forbus character!
And for all you audiophiles, these are also two of my favorite series on audio. Macmillan Audio published BURY YOUR DEAD on audio. This is a change from the previous publisher, Blackstone Audio, but the narrator has remained the same, Ralph Cosham. The John Ceepak series is available exclusively from Audible.
