  1. I agree about the six I've read. I just read "The Lantern Men," and loved it as well as "The Hollows" and "Bluebird, Bluebird." The other three I read I liked, too.
    But the three books I mentioned here are in series which don't produce the next book quickly enough.
    This pandemic is expensive, just ordered four books as my library branch is still closed. And this will keep up, I'm afraid.

  2. Yes. But I lend the books to friends so others can benefit.

  3. But the irony of it all is that no one will travel to pick them up. One friend who lives in Buffalo, N.Y., to whom I give book ideas, responded when I told her about "The Lantern Men," "I was the first to get the book when it rolled off hte presses!" We actually discussed plot developments. We both like Frank. However, she and I had different responses to developments at the end of the book.

    1. Don't want to travel to pick up books? That's one of the zillions of reasons why no one should mess with the USPS.

  4. I wonder if Elly Griffiths is winding up the series with The Night Hawk.

  5. This thought? I read the summary of the next book and wondered. I hope not. I'd like this to be endless.
    Oh, and on the friend driving over to get 'The Lantern Men," the one who is driving in the city did that today. She has it and is so excited. I already told her I can't wait to discuss plot developments.

    1. I'd like the series to be endless, too, but so many things could happen, and I'd also not want the quality of the series to diminish.

  6. Agree. Want series to continue, but not get hackneyed or boring. That's why I thought this book might end it. But Elly Griffiths always keeps us on pins and needles, so this could continue.

  7. OK. I've read eight of these. I think that's my limit.

    1. I'm glad I could entice you to read eight, Kathy.
