3 Astounding Books I Read Last Week

And by the way, The Wolves of Fairmount Park? This 2nd by Tafoya is not available until June but get it on your wish list right now. If you don't, you're dead to me. You want grim mystery, you want the human condition filtered through a cracked prism of noir, you want a sweeping opera of crime and punishment? The Wolves is it, baby. In spades. Spades. This novel blew me to hell and gone, so much so that I never wanted it to end. There are books that follow you and this is one of them, trust me.
