Where the Bodies are Buried

Memorable Books from 2011

Whilst I can normally manage to cobble together one of those dreaded "Top 10" listings for some of the mailing lists or, just before Christmas, on the Sisters in Crime website, I hate doing them.  It's such an arbitrary number, and doesn't even allow me the luxury of a favourite book per month.  So instead, a few reminders to myself on what really stayed with me from last year's reading list of 135 books.

Currently Reading - Where the Bodies are Buried, Chris Brookmyre

Name change from Christopher to Chris, but this is the Brookmyre - writing straight crime it seems.  From the first few chapters I read last night there's just the slightly feeling of that dry, sarcastic humour so well loved by fans of his books.

From the Blurb:

Detective Catherine McLeod was always taught that in Glasgow, they don't do whodunit.  They do score-settling.  They do vendettas.  They do petty revenge.
