Lots going on this week, from a lovely review of The Zen Man to the best private detective blogs of 2012.

5 Star Review of THE ZEN MAN by MacKenzie Brown

Super review from MacKenzie Brown on Goodreads:

A fantastic read from start to finish. Reminded me a great deal of the works of Robert Crais and Robert B Parker. The story concerns Rick a recovering alcoholic and part time PI and a past that comes back to bite him on the backside, in the form of his ex-wife. When she is murdered at the home he shares with Laura he is accused of her murder and becomes embroiled in a race against time to clear his name. Superbly written and beautifully characterised, this is a fast paced thriller with one eye on a homage to the great noir thriller writers of the forties. I could not recommend this book more highly.
