Nemesis Games by James S.A. Corey Jonathan gave 3 stars to Nemesis Games (Expanse, #5) by James S.A. Corey
bookshelves: fiction, sci-fi
Probably my least favorite of the series so far, even though all the points of view chapters are for the 4 main characters of the whole series. There was a whole bunch of whining about how they are split apart, and what would Holden/Naomi/Alex/Amos do if they were here. Holden was practically weeping in his cups every chapter, due to the dispersal of his beloved crew. I had a hard time keeping Amos and Alex differentiated, and Naomi's chapters were all over the place, psychically speaking. And I never really understood the politics of the whole thing either. All and all, entirely forgettable, unfortunately .
Burning Man by Alan Russell Jonathan gave 3 stars to Burning Man (Paperback) by Alan Russell
bookshelves: to-read, fiction, mystery
Another solid if unspectacular detective novel, the first of the novels featuring LAPD detective Michael Gideon and his police dog Sirius. They are both recovering from a horrific burning, as they brought a serial murderer out of a flaming canyon. In a Hannibal / Clarissa like twist, he gets to visit the serial murderer on death's row in San Quentin to probe his psyche. And in a very The Following kind of way, the serial killer seems to be manipulating folks on the outside to mess with Gideon.

While all this goes on, he has to solve 2 mysteries - who killed a dead baby (bringing up his own orphan beginnings) and who crucified a high schooler.

It's all a bit pedestrian, although the dog interactions are, of course, wonderful. Sirius does come in for some deus ex machina usage, though, which is annoying. Other annoying traits of the book are dreams/nightmares that open the way for "special insights" and the habit of a first person narrative to suddenly hide information from the reader that the narrator knows. And I did have to flip back to figure out just who the hell Simeon zeroed in on as the high school killer, having totally lost track of this character many chapters before. It would have been nice if he could have said both his name and who the heck he was, before dashing head long, once again, into an inferno.

I already have the second book, Guardians of the Night, on my tablet, so I'll give that a read but otherwise I'm not particularly enamoured with it.
Knots and Crosses by Ian Rankin Jonathan gave 3 stars to Knots and Crosses (Inspector Rebus, #1) by Ian Rankin
bookshelves: to-read, fiction, mystery
Solid if unspectacular police procedural, featuring Edinborough police detective John Rebus. A bit of a stereotype (hard drinking, hard smoking, disastrous personal life) but still moved along smartly. I'll give #2 a try.
