This week I reread Mark of the Demon by Diana Rowland. This is a good paranormal police procedural that involves the hunt for a serial killer. I rarely reread book, so I was surprised to find myself caught up in the action all over again. This is the first book in a series and is set in Louisiana. Diana is a friend of mine and if you haven’t checked out her books, you should. Visit: http://www.dianarowland.com/
And speaking of writer friends… Another dear friend and local author Pamela Binning Ewen‘s title The Secret of the Shroud just hit the shelves on September 1st. She is currently touring, so if you see her out and about say hi. She’s a great lady.
Reading (or should I say rereading):
Blood of the Demon by Diana Rowland — This is book two. Book three comes out in January.
Trouble in Triplicate by Rex Stout — I finished the first “case”, there are three stories in this book, and I loved it! The plot felt familiar so I am thinking they used it for the A&E TV show. I am such a Nero Wolfe fan, I have the whole series on DVD, lots of old radio programs on CD, and I am working my way through the novels.
The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi won the Hugo Award for best novel. Actually it was a tie, but this is the one I’ve read. I really liked it because it was one of those scifi novels that made me want to dig into some of the idea presented. I talked about it here.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is organized by Sheila over at Book Journey. Be sure to stop by her site and read the great blogs of the other participates.
( On a personal note I’d like to thank St. Jude, St. Rita, the Blessed Mother, and Heavenly Father for all the prayers they’ve answered in the last month and to continue to ask for their help and blessings.)
