January is dragging on and on and on. Before I begin reading The Trinity Six, a spy novel published last year, I am trying to finish The Skull Mantra by Eliot Pattison which I began at the start of this month. The Skull Mantra won an Edgar Award in 2000. Although the year 2000 seems a lifetime ago, the book is still great; I am enjoying it very much. I am just having difficulty finding time to read.
I'm also on the lookout for a good novel outside the spy/mystery genre. I'll let you know when I find it.
