Mailbox Monday

21 Feb

My Mailbox looks a little like this one.Mailbox Monday is a place to celebrate the new books that take up residence in our houses. It is currently touring the Internet (at a different blog each week), and Library of Clean Reads is the February host.

I had one book arrive in my mailbox again this week, which is a perfect pace for me!  It allows me to keep up with incoming books while reading some of the books I really want to get to on my shelves.

The Taint of Midas by Anne Zouroudi

Gabrilis Kaloyeros is a bee-keeper on the beautiful Greek island of Arcadia. The ruined Temple of Apollo has been in his care for decades, and he has worked to protect it. But when crooked developers take over the island and the value of the land soars, he is persuaded through unscrupulous means to sign away his interest. Hours later he meets a violent, lonely death.

When detective Hermes Diaktoros finds his friend’s battered body by a dusty roadside, the police quickly name him the prime suspect. But with rapacious developers threatening Arcadia’s most ancient sites, many stand to gain from Gabrilis’s death. Hermes resolves to avenge his old friend and find the true culprit, but his methods are, as ever, unorthodox.

I’d like to dive right into this book– I’m feeling the need for something a little out of the ordinary, and I think this would fit the bill!

What was in your mailbox this week? Share your thoughts on your books and mine, and then head to Library of Clean Reads, this month’s host for Mailbox Monday.

    That should be a good one, after all, it’s a Reagan Arthur book.
