As posted elsewhere earlier.....
This first set of reviews for 2014, added to the Euro Crime website
today, is a mixture of new reviews and a catch-up of those posted
directly on the blog in the last few weeks, so you may have read some of
them before if you're a regular .
Euro Crime took a break over the festive period in terms of reviews
however the review team revealed their favourite discoveries of 2013 in
a series of posts
Currently we are part-way through unveiling the review team's favourite
reads of 2013
After the individual lists have been posted I will tally them all up and
reveal the overall favourite Euro Crime authors, titles and translators
