Just read my first book from new friend (and fellow Bouchcercon panelist) Steve Brewer: Bullets (Intrigue, $24.95). You wouldn't expect a book about a, hitwoman to be lighthearted and funny, but this is. It had me laughing out loud on occasion, which doesn't happen all that often with mysteries (unless I'm reading Janet Evanovich).

Good characters and a swift-moving plot make this an enjoyable read. (I especially liked the two sad sack wannabe bad guys who drive around in a limo and keep getting the crap beat out of them.) I haven't read anything else of Steve's, but I think I'll have to give him a try.
