About Me

Melfort, Saskatchewan, Canada
I am a lawyer in Melfort, Saskatchewan, Canada who enjoys reading, especially mysteries. Since 2000 I have been writing personal book reviews. This blog includes my reviews, information on and interviews with authors and descriptions of mystery bookstores I have visited. I strive to review all Saskatchewan mysteries. Other Canadian mysteries are listed under the Rest of Canada. As a lawyer I am always interested in legal mysteries. I have a separate page for legal mysteries. Occasionally my reviews of legal mysteries comment on the legal reality of the mystery. You can follow the progression of my favourite authors with up to 15 reviews. Each year I select my favourites in "Bill's Best of ----". As well as current reviews I am posting reviews from 2000 to 2011. Below my most recent couple of posts are the posts of Saskatchewan mysteries I have reviewed alphabetically by author. If you only want a sentence or two description of the book and my recommendation when deciding whether to read the book look at the bold portion of the review. If you would like to email me the link to my email is on the profile page.

30.) Deadly Decisions by Kathy Reichs – The third in the series of Montreal forensic anthropologist, Temperance Brennan. This time biker gangs are the focus. Good; maybe hardcover buy. (Aug. 7/00)

29.) Front Row at the White House by Helen Thomas – A vivid autobiography by the lady who covered U.S. Presidents for 37 years for UPI. Excellent. (July 30/00) (Second best non-fiction of 2000)

 

26.) Time to be in Earnest by P.D. James – A diary of her 77th year. It was nice but I wish she had more discussion of the process of writing mysteries. (July 13/00)
