Brief reviews of mysteries, thrillers, and crime novels.

I think I've read Georgette Heyer's books three times now over the years. As old familiar friends, light and undemanding, they were perfect trauma reading in the car, in print and on the e-reader this fall. I read:
These Old Shades (1926) The Masqueraders (1928) Devil’s Cub (1932) Why Shoot a Butler? (1933) The Convenient Marriage (1934) Death in the Stocks (1935) Regency Buck (1935) The Talisman Ring (1936) The Corinthian (1940) Faro’s Daughter (1941) Envious Casca (1941) Friday’s Child (1944) The Reluctant Widow (1946) The Foundling (1948) Arabella (1949) The Grand Sophy (1950) The Quiet Gentleman (1951) Cotillion (1953) The Toll-Gate (1954) Bath Tangle (1955) Sprig Muslin (1956) April Lady (1957) Sylvester, or the Wicked Uncle (1957) Venetia (1958) The Unknown Ajax (1959) The Nonesuch (1962) False Colours (1963) Frederica (1965) Charity Girl (1970) Lady of Quality (1972)
And I still have a few mysteries to finish. I admit to not remembering which were my favorites.
