2018 Week #21 Update

And…the unseasonable heat wave continues. Also, I tried 2 new (to me) series – mystery classics I’d never heard of until recently. The first of Anna Katharine Green’s Inspector Gryce books and the first Fleming Stone novel by Carolyn Wells. I like Carolyn Wells’ style of storytelling better, but they were both engaging and entertaining – and both had too little of their respective, and intriguing, detectives. I want to read more in either case and hope to see more of those central characters. (It reminds me of the first Miss Silver mystery, where the series protagonist enters the story late and only briefly. Thankfully the rest of those books had much more of Maude, who became one of my all-time favorite fictional sleuths.)
