new mystery writer, new novelist

The Business of Dying by Simon Kernick, 2002. Writer recommended to me by the owner of the mystery book store in Victoria, Chronicles of Crime. It was good and I want to read more by him. He's a bit brutal - lots of dead bodies. But good plot, good writing.

Where the God of Love Hangs Out by Amy Bloom
, 2009. Really perceptive writer. Just started this book but I like it a lot. Not a novel but groups of connected stories.
