Two good mysteries and a really interesting non-fiction

Mark Billingham, reading his latest 2017 Tom Thorne mystery, the 14th in the seriesLove Like Blood. Very well written with timely and true topic of honour killing. His characters are good, plot good and he reads very well.

Sharon Bolton is another good mystery writer, Dead Woman Walking, 2017. Don't think I'll ever try a hot air balloon now. Complex plot, but interesting read.

Word by Word; the secret lives of dictionaires, by Kory Stamper 2017, is a great book. Who would think that reading about how dictionaries are created and maintained would be interesting but it really is. A lexicographer's life is not easy!
