A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

First sentence:
What's this?
Acquired: Received a review copy from Simon & Schuster Canada.

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

This is a very exciting volume.  Things are building up to a vital showdown between Ando and Inukai.  The Grasshoppers have become widespread throughout the city now and Ando has very few people he can trust left.  Ando's life is in danger again as the enemy tries to take him out before Inukai's next public meeting with which he intends to take over the city.  This assassin is the worst he has had to face yet.

As said, an exciting volume.  The action is almost totally centred on Ando and his problems.  Inukai is only shown briefly as the force behind the secret plot that the Grasshopper's are setting up with the upcoming meeting.  There is the death of a recurring character. This was a fast read for me as the action was non-stop from the beginning.  The end advertising pages let us know that the next volume will wrap up this story arc, which, of course, makes me eager to read the next volume.  This will not be the end of the series though.
