Murder By The Book
This week, visited Murder By The Book, 3210 S.E. Hawthorne. It’s one of Portland’s true gems and you owe it to yourself to check it out. Great staff, great collection of mysteries and thrillers.
Katy King got “Faceless Killers” and “The Dogs of Riga” by Henning Mankell, and “The Hypnotist” by Lars Kepler. Also, “Paris to Die For,” by Maxine Kenneth, which imagines young Jackie Bouvier as a CIA spy before being courted by a certain senator from Massachusetts.
I got “Pirates of the Levant” by Arturo Perez-Reverte and three whodunits by Philip MacDonald, “Escape,” “Warrant for X” and “The Polferry Riddle” (circa 1931, ’32 and ’38).
