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.

Paul Levine's Solomon Vs Lord Series




Award-nominated author Paul Levine has re-released his series Solomon vs Lord on Kindle.  This is a four book acclaimed series of thrillers featuring lawyers Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord. Originally published in the 2000's by Bantam. Books from this suspenseful and humorous series were nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, International Thriller and James Thurber awards. I've been hearing them compared to the old TV show "Moonlighting" and am very excited to give these books a try.  I currently have the first two books in the series.  Check these out!  Each one is under $5!

Trial lawyer Victoria Lord, who follows every rule, and Steve Solomon, who makes up his own, bicker and banter as they defend a beautiful young woman, accused of killing her wealthy, older husband.

Solomon and Lord come together – and fly apart – defending Victoria’s “Uncle Grif” on charges he killed a man with a speargun. It’s a case set in the Florida Keys with side trips to coral reefs and a nudist colony where all is more –and less – than it seems.

Just what did Steve Solomon do to infuriate ex-client and ex-con “Dr. Bill?” Did Solomon try to lose the case in which the TV shrink was charged in the death of a woman patient?

It starts with the kidnapping of a pair of trained dolphins and turns into a murder trial with Solomon and Lord on opposite sides after Victoria is appointed a special prosecutor, and fireworks follow!

Looks like a great series!  And I do wish more published authors would get the rights to their old backlists and make the books available again at affordable prices on ebook.

Visit Paul Levine's website to find out more about the Solomon vs Lord series, his current Jake Lassiter series and his standalone thrillers.
