The Woman in White Marble by Dale Rominger
The Woman in White Marble

Turner42, October 4, 2014

I found this a thoroughly enjoyable read. Dale Rominger has managed to capture the atmosphere of the 30's gum shoe detective/reporter with a style that reminds me of Douglas Adams in his Dirk Gently series.
The characters are well developed. Once you get started, you will be pulled into the story and carried along to the unexpected ending.
I highly recommend this novella.
The woman In White Marble was this year's winner of the Editor's Choice award

Pirate King: A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes

Laurie R. King did a fabulous job in continuing one of the best detective series. I particularly enjoyed the way she brought Holmes into the case well into the book. A thoroughly enjoyable read. Her visit to Powell's was an added bonus. She was a delight to hear.
