I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
I've been planning to read this murder mystery over the next week or so, as it is set during the 4th of July celebrations.
If anyone would care to join me, I'd be delighted to have company.
It is currently winging its way to my library branch and I should be ready to go in a matter of days.
