"Waiting On" Wednesday: One True Sentence

Jill at Breaking the Spine, hosts "Waiting On" Wednesday, a weekly event spotlighting those new and future releases that we're looking forward to getting our hands on.

And this week, the book I'm looking forward to is:

One True Sentence
Written by Craig McDonald
Minotaur Books
Release date: February 15, 2011

Description (from GoodReads):
A Movable Feast meets The Dante Club, this crime novel by Edgar-nominated Craig McDonald begins when a literary magazine editor’s body lands in the Seine.

Paris, 1924. Hector Lassiter, crime novelist and best friend of Ernest Hemingway, is passing the Pont Neuf when he sees a body fall into the Seine, the first in a string of brutal murders that befall literary magazine editors on both banks of the City of Lights. Eager to solve the mystery, Gertrude Stein gathers the most prominent crime and mystery writers in the city, including Hector and the dark and intriguing mystery novelist Brinke Devlin. Soon, Hector and Brinke are tangled not only under the sheets but in a web of murders, each more grisly than the next, and Hemingway, Hector, and Brinke have to scramble to find the killer before they become the next victims.

Paris in the 1920s and a few grisly murders! And Gertrude Stein running the show? How could I pass that up?


  1. Sounds like one I need to add to my list, too.

  2. That cover makes me think the book must have a retro feel.
