Unfortunately, she’s not a new author however . . . Sharon Zukowski . I’m reading the third book in her series (I haven’t found the others yet) “The Hour of the Knife”. I’m impressed. She’s a little semi-colon crazy but overall a good writer. The story that I’m currently reading was written in the early 90’s so I’m not sure how successful I’ll be in finding any of her other books but I like what I’m reading so far.
Yes, I’ve got the old stand-bys: Laura Lippman, Peter Robinson, Tim Downs, etc. but it is nice to come up with a new author now and then, isn’t it?
