These posts, each first Sunday of the month, showcase the books I’ve bought, begged, borrowed or won (I draw the line at stolen!) during the previous month. I’ll try to mention everyone that appears in the blog, in a tweet when I publish the post, but I apologise in advance to anyone I’ve forgotten.
So here we go:

Books I’ve Bought
During May I bought on Kindle:
Cry Baby by David Jackson
Can Anybody Help Me? By Sinead Crowley
The Truth Will Out by Jane Isaac
And paperbacks:
Dead Letter Drop by Peter James

Leigh Russell at Wigan Library
I attended a crime panel event in Wigan and was lucky enough to meet author Leigh Russell and have my copy of Stop Dead signed.
