Goodreads Review of Who Watcheth

"He watches the women from the shadows. He has an understanding with them; as long as they follow his rules, they are safe. But when they sin, he sentences them to death. 
A woman is found dead in a cemetery, strangled and covered in plastic. Just a few days before her death, the victim had received a flower, an unintelligible note, and a photograph of herself. Detective Inspector Irene Huss and her colleagues on the Violent Crimes Unit in Goteborg, Sweden, have neither clue nor motive to pursue, and when similar murders follow, their search for the killer becomes increasingly desperate. Meanwhile, strange things have been going on at home for Irene: first the rose bush in her garden is mangled, then she receives a threatening package with no return address. Is Irene being paranoid, or is she next on the killer's list?"

I'm not familiar with this author, Roy.  It does sound interesting and I will add it to my list.

Eeh gads, this sounds like a thriller. Can't read these when I'm home alone. Oh wait. I'm NEVER home alone. Guess I can get a copy. :)

Hi Roy Kelley - A question came to mind... I was just wondering if you keep your books in a library or donate them after you have finished?

A high percentage of the books we read come  from our public library.

However, our bookcases are loaded and we donate many books after we read them. Chef Dolores has a large collection of cookbooks and art books that are part of our permanent collection.
