What I’m Reading

Read Time:1 Minute, 6 Second
Just finished CNN anchor Jake Tapper’s All The Demons Are Here. The two point-of-view characters are Ike Marder, an AWOL Marine hiding from Idaho Nazis who hooks up with Evel Knievel who, Tapper fantasizes, is running for president. Imagine that: A showbiz huckster thinking he can break into politics. Ike’s naive sister, Lucy, meanwhile, is cutting her teeth as a reporter for a Washington, D.C., tabloid owned by a Rupert Murdoch look-alike, which is just as awful as it sounds. Murder and mayhem ensue. (Spoiler alert: Count on a jarhead to invent a fertilizer cannon.)

Teed up next on my To Be Read stack: With a Kiss We Die by husband and wife team Matt Dorff and Suzanne Dunn writing as L.R. Dorn, who I was pleased to meet at one of my recent book signings. It’s a murder mystery written in the style of a true-crime podcast in which two college lovers suspected of a brutal double murder enlist a podcaster to prove their innocence.

Also happy to report that my friend and former Antioch Writers Workshop colleague Sharon Short will be publishing under her own name again. Look for Trouble Island coming in 2024. You may be familiar with her pseudonym Jess Montgomery and her wonderful Kinship historical mystery series.
