What I'm reading

I seem to be into mysteries right now. Here are three I recommend.

As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley
I just finished the latest installment of Alan Bradley's Flavia series.
In this one Flavia gets shipped off to a Girls school in Canada and finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery the night she arrives when a body slips out of the fireplace chimney in her room.
Always fun.

The Escape by David Baldacci
This military spy ring mystery has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing.

White Fire by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child
The indomitable FBI Agent Pendergast is back helping his protegee after she gets herself in some serious trouble in a wealthy Colorado ski town while trying to gather information on some old bones from bodies that were supposedly killed and eaten by a bear in the 1800's. Another mystery for Pendergast to solve unfolds as a wealthy family is murdered by being set on fire inside their home.
