Another book I read out of order this month. This is book three of the Erlander series, and comes before The Draining Lake. Again, my enjoyment of either was not spoilt by that, but it’s so nice to be able to get my character timeline back in order.
There is so much that could maybe, just possibly, if I’m lucky, be happening, in the pipeline that I’m terrified. I don’t want it to go wrong again. I want something to look forward too. I want positive change, for a change, and it’s so tangible, so close, and I don’t want to frighten it away.
The first of four (so far) crossover novels between Joe Pike & Elvis Cole, and which precedes the earlier crossover novel I read, The First Rule. While reading them out of order didn’t spoil my enjoyment of either, this one certainly filled in some blanks about the behaviour of some characters in The First Rule.
Oh the joys of being crammed elbow to elbow in an over crowded, under staffed restaurant that lied to you when you booked your table, moved your reservation time twice, put all their new staff on the days rota, screwed up your order, under microwaved one if the meals in a huff that you ordered it, had to be constantly chased for service and took over two hours to serve a two course meal for five.
This is why I never take my Mother out on Mothers Day. She’ll have a far better experience if I do it another day.
Still at least the place we were so badly treated forgot to bill us for the wine….
