The poisoner's handbook : murder and the birth of forensic medicine in Jazz Age
Blum, Deborah, 1954-
A wonderful and engrossing non-fiction account of a medical examiner and a toxicologist creating the field now popularized by such shows as CSI. The book not only discusses poisons but also Prohibition, industrial negligence, and the courageous, heroic and totally awesome lives of Charles Norris and Alexander Gettler.

Chabon, Michael.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of adventure, revenge seeking, raiding, trickery, friendship, and yes even a small dose of romance. The characters are well developed and the story draws one in completely in the space of the first chapter, "On Discord Arising from the Excessive Love of a Hat," the accompanying illustrations by Hal Foster, of Prince Valiant fame, are an added bonus to this wonderful read.

Haig, Matt, 1975-
Heart-wrenching, a story that may bring tears to pet owners, but also a chilling tale of loyalty.

Dial H. Volume 1, Into You
Mieville, China
By the use of strange dials our heroes are able to tap into a random heroic identity for a time. From Boy Chimney to Hair Bringer the super heroes themselves aren't exactly run of the mill either. MiƩville's characters are always original and he really breathed new life into the classic super hero comic. The twist at the end adds further depth to this super-hero comic.

Rindell, Suzanne
A psychological page-turner that keeps readers a bit off-kilter. The ending especially so.

Small, David, 1945-
A very interesting and heart rending memoir in comic style. I found the art beautiful and haunting, the story even more so. Full of tragedy and drops of dark humor, this memoir gives one pause.

Vowell, Sarah, 1969-
For those who are afraid of non-fiction sending them spiraling into bits of snoring embarrassment this book is the cure. As the pages fly by one doesn't even realize the amount of information packed into this witty adventure.

Wolff, Tobias, 1945-
I haven't read a book this good in a while. The writing was superb, the story excellent and characters so realistic that I had to glance at the back a couple times just to make sure what I was reading was, in fact, fictional.
