Monday: Mailbox/What Am I reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. August host is Penelope @ The Reading Fever.

I received one book from the publisher

1) A Criminal Defense by Steven Gore:

Over three decades, Hamlin's practice devolved into just another racket: intimidating witnesses, suborning perjury, destroying evidence, laundering money. But is he the victim of murder--or of a dangerous sexual encounter gone wrong? And when law enforcement believes justice has already been done, who can be trusted to find out?

Once again in the city where his career came to a shattering end, former detective Harlan Donnally resolved it wouldn't be him. He had no desire to immerse himself in the deceit that was Hamlin's career . . . nor entangle himself in the corrupted loyalties that turned the dead lawyer's associates into both co-conspirators and suspects . . . nor make himself the proxy for the hatreds and betrayals Hamlin left behind.

But the presiding judge demanded otherwise--and that might cost Donnally his life.

Hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of BooksWe discuss the books that we've read and what we're planning to read for the week.

I finished reading:

The Roman Prophecy by John Trace

I am in the midst of reading:

A Criminal Defense by Steven Gore


Monday Musing asks you to muse about something to do with books and reading each week…

•You just want to ramble on about something pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I will ramble about LESS reading.  CSR (blurred vision) in my left eye is back, like the proverbial prodigal son. My eye specialist had told me to reduce my stress but that is an impossibility. So I am back to square one. Visibility has reduced and I can't read e-books!
