I love English mystery writers…Deborah Crombie and her Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James books…I have read every one of these…the dogs, the boys, English tea! Jacqueline Winspear and all of her Maisie Dobbs books are faves. Elizabeth George and Inspector Lynley…again…I love these books.
But I have a special fondness for Alex Grecian and his Murder Squad. Sordid conditions, the beginnings of a sort of CSI, and the constant threat of Jack…I love these books. In his newest one Walter Day has been abducted by Jack for a year! It takes a second to get back into these and I love every word.
These books really should be read in order to get their full glorious effect!
Most of these books are always in foggy London, there are always street urchins, meat pies, tea, vermin and of course Jack…that would be Jack The Ripper.
So…I am deep into his newest one and loving it! I hope it’s the end of Jack and his very sharp razor.
Den is totally finished with his Invisilign braces today. His teeth are beautiful!
Between the two of us we have had three braces interventions. I wore braces twice…Den once. Today he gets his bottom teeth wired on the inside and an impression for his top teeth retainer…to be worn forever!
How are we going to celebrate! Den is going to chew gum for the first time in 3 years! I bought him his very own pack! Invisilign braces are relatively easy but the delight in not having to wear them…is incredible!
We are staying home today…all day long. It’s going to be 70 here this afternoon. Kitties are ready for a walk around the ‘hood!
Roxie thinks this is how we will roll…heeheehee!
Have a great day!
