What books came into your house last week? Three books came into mine:
Tangier by Stephen Holgate. This debut novel goes back and forth between the modern day story of a "disgraced Washington power broker" and the mystery he sets out to solve about his father, a French diplomat who supposedly died in a Vichy prison during WWII. It looks fantastic!
Steve Holgate is giving an author talk at Browser Bookshop in Olympia, Washington this Friday, June 23, 2017 at 7:00 pm.
The Secret Speech by Tom Rob Smith. This is the second book in his Child 44 Trilogy. I read and loved Child 44. The third book, Agent 6, is already on my TBR shelf.
The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff. I've seen this around and found a copy at my local consignment shop. I know nothing about it. Is it good?
