I like Michael Connelly novels. This one sounds good too. From the teaser it sounds darkly funny.

Mine this week comes from Isabel Allende's The House of Spirits

Hello Gautami,

Some great teaser lines, from a great crime/thriller author.

Michael Connelly is one of the best, right up there with John Grisham.

I checked my TBR pile and found my copy there, just patiently waiting its turn !!!! ONE DAY SOON !!!
