August Reading - Books #22-24

22. William Gibson, Zero History, 404 pages, Science Fiction, Hardback, 2010 (Bigend Series, Book 3). Hubertus Bigend once again has Hollis Henry exploring something for him - secret brands. A good book, but does best with a good memory of Pattern Recognition and Spook Country. 4/5

23. Charlaine Harris, Sweet and Deadly, 262 pages, Mystery, Paperback, 1981. Her first novel, and there are places where you can tell. Basic girl moves back to Southern town after parents' death, trying to find the killer before she's in the crosshairs. 2.5/5

24. Charlaine Harris, A Secret Rage, 198 pages, Mystery, Paperback, 1984. After working in the big city as a model, our heroine moves back to her little Southern town to go back to college. But there's a serial rapist on the loose, and he's rapidly progressing to murder. 3/5

I'm currently reading Kathy Reich's Spider Bones. It's going slow - I've lost my traditional reading spot due to some shuffling of the furniture and I haven't found the next spot that is going to be just right.
