 Agent X by Noah Boyd
 

Steve Vail travels to Washington, D.C. and is looking forward to his New Year's Eve date with Kate Bannon, an FBI assistant director. He helped the FBI with a case once before and had no idea they would once again ask for his assistance. Vail, a former FBI agent, works as a bricklayer. He does not like management and makes this fact well known.

The case the FBI needs assistance with involves a man named Calculus. Calculus, an officer with the Russian Embassy, informs the FBI that he has a list of Americans who are selling information to the Russian SVR. He is offering to sell the names for a price. He wants a quarter million dollars for each name and a half million for the last one. The last one would cost more because this person is a "highly placed intelligence agent." At first Steve does not want any part of this case until the director talks to him in private. The director informed Steve about some things that have recently happened – some of which involve Kate. Steve changed his mind and agreed to become involved in the case. He would be working with Kate. However, Steve wanted it made clear that he would be working with her – not for her.

Are Steve and Kate able to get through this dangerous case without something happening to them? Are they able to trust anyone?

Right from the very first page, Agent X starts with a rush of thrills that do not let up throughout the book. The author's writing skills grabbed my attention and held it there until the end of the book. If you read The Bricklayer by Noah Boyd, you will know what I mean. I enjoyed The Bricklayer very much but liked Agent X even more. Noah Boyd knows how to write a thriller by combining action, intriguing characters and several plots going on at the same time and the pace of the book is exactly right. The relationship between Steve Vail and Kate Bannon is interesting and readers will look forward to where this all goes in future books. Agent X is the second book by Noah Boyd. Readers surely have much to look forward to in future books with this author's writing style. Hold on to your seats for the last few chapters!

 Cat Coming Home by Shirley Rosseau Murphy
  Maudie Toola does not have time to grieve for her son and his second wife who were murdered. It is now the child's first Christmas since this tragedy and Maudie knows she has to do everything possible to make things pleasant for the boy.

Maudie is not aware that the killer has followed her to Molena Point. There are also some strange things occurring in this town. Several assaults on single women have taken place and the criminals are using a cover-up to make it look like break-ins.

Does Maudie know more than what she is saying about the murder of her son and his wife? Is she keeping something secret?

A new prison cat appears at the scene. He has a message for the Chief of Police. Does he provide the answer to the murders? Joe Grey befriends this lonely prison cat and Joe and his friends help this cat find a new home.

Will Joe Grey and his friends help solve this mystery?

Joe Grey mysteries are always a pleasure to read. There is plenty of suspense, a good mystery to keep you on your toes, and the fun of having Joe Grey and his friends getting involved to help solve the mystery. What makes this book extra special is the addition of the subplot. The skillful writing of Shirley Rosseau Murphy brings everything together in a very smooth storyline. Any cat lover will enjoy this series by Shirley Rosseau Murphy. I have read several in this series and found each book to be a very entertaining read.

 Flourless to Stop Him (A Baker's Treat Mystery) by Nancy J. Parra
  It's a busy time for Toni at her gluten free bakery.  It's Christmastime and she is trying her best to get the holiday cookies baked on time.  Toni is visiting with her best friend, Tasha Wilkes, who runs the Red Tile Inn. 

Maria, the maid, came rushing in and informed Tasha that she found a body in one of the rooms.  It turns out that the room is registered to Tim who is Toni's brother.  The body is identified as Howard Petry who was a good friend of Tim's.

In the meantime, Tim is staying over Toni's house.  The police obtain a search warrant and find cocaine hidden in Toni's garage.   Tim insists he had nothing to do with the murder of Howard or with the cocaine.  Was someone trying to frame Tim?

Toni had been so busy with her bakery that she decided to just leave the investigation to the police.  She also relied on Grandma Ruth, a woman in her 90's, who had excellent investigative skills.  As time goes on, Toni decides she has to help Tim and gets involved in the investigation.

Is Toni successful at trying to help prove Tim is innocent?

Not only is there a mystery in this book but it also contains a bit of romance since Toni, who has been divorced for many years, is a little hesitant to get involved in a relationship again.  There are a few men interested in Toni and this adds more interest to the story.

Flourless to Stop Him is an interesting cozy mystery and a pleasure to read.  There is enough of a mystery to keep the reader turning the pages.  The reader will also feel involved in the romance and in whom, if anyone, Toni will decide on as a possible new relationship.  My favorite character is Grandma Ruth who is full of life and moves along on her scooter no matter what time of day.  She can also out eat anyone when it comes to the cookies at the bakery and has fairly good investigative skills for a woman her age.If you enjoy cozy mysteries, read Flourless to Stop Him.  You will find this book very entertaining.

 An Unmarked Grave by Charles Todd
 

An Unmarked Grave takes place in 1918. Bess Crawford is a nurse where she is assigned to a field hospital in France. She tends to the wounded. The situation gets worse as the Spanish Influenza strikes and makes not only the soldiers very ill but also some of the medical staff.

A private who is in charge of the dead bodies until a burial takes place confronts Bess. He asks Bess to come with him. The private has one more body then he should have and suspects something is not right. Bess agrees to go with the private to the shed where the bodies are kept. After viewing the body, she confirms the soldier did not die from either the influenza or from wounds received in a battle. She also recognizes the young man.

Bess wants to report this matter; however, she is taken very ill with the influenza. She is sent home to her parents. As she begins to recover, she starts to remember some of these things that happened with the soldier. At first, she thought she might have had a dream but in time she is sure about what had taken place.

Her parents do not want her to return to France because this is the second time she almost died. Bess is determined to return and solve the mystery of the young soldier. Tension starts to mount when something bad seems to be happening to people who are connected to this case.

Will Bess Crawford be able to discover what really happened?

The writing team of Charles Todd does an excellent job with the descriptive details and the reader will feel like the authors are painting a picture for them as the story continues.

An Unmarked Grave gives the reader everything they could wish for in a book. You have a mystery that is difficult to solve, three-dimensional characters and a plot that will hold your interest throughout the book. I have read several books by Charles Todd and always enjoy the historical mysteries involving Bess. The historical detail makes for a very interesting read. It is not necessary to read the other books first but you will probably want to do so once you have read An Unmarked Grave.

 The Bone Yard by Jefferson Bass
 

What is the body farm? It is a research facility at the University of Tennessee where students who are studying forensics can learn about the various stages of decomposition of bodies. There are hundreds of corpses in various states of disrepair. Some bodies are above ground and others are buried.

Angie St. Claire, a forensic analyst with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, asks Dr. Brockton who is in charge of the body farm for help. Angie's sister has died and the death has been ruled a suicide. Angie does not believe her sister committed suicide. Her belief is that her sister was murdered and probably by her own husband. To add fuel to the fire, the husband did not waste any time burying Angie's sister. In fact, she was not embalmed. The difficult part is that Angie has to prove her accusations.

Dr. Brockton agrees to help Angie. He also believes that Angie's sister was murdered because suicide by shotgun is rare, especially among women. As he is beginning his investigation into Angie's sister's death, some strange things start to happen. A dog has found not one but two sculls which end up belonging to adolescents. These sculls also appear to contain fractures. Their search to identify the victims leads them to the North Florida Boy's Reformatory. A diary, apparently written by one of the students, has been found and claimed that one wrong move could land a boy in the Bone Yard. As Dr. Brockton continues his investigation, he finds opposition from the local Sheriff. Why? What is the Sheriff hiding?

Are Angie and Dr. Brockton able to find the answers that will explain how her sister really died? What is going on with the second mystery involving the sculls?

The writing team of Jefferson Bass is never short on details regarding the body farm. Some of the details will make you cringe as you are reading this book. The Bone Yard involves a mystery within a mystery. How is that for a double treat? Most of the action happens beforehand but the exciting part is following Dr. Brockton and watching him using his expertise in order to put all the pieces of the puzzle together to find the truth. The forensic details make for an interesting read as well as one that is also educational for the reader. I have enjoyed several of the books written by the team of Jefferson Bass. The Bone Yard really held my attention and I could not wait to read the next chapter. If you enjoy investigations involving forensics, The Bone Yard is a must read.
