I didn't purchase as many books as usual at Left Coast Crime this year. I'm not sure why. Anyway, here are the books I bought:
A Killing Winter (Leo Desroches #2) by Wayne Arthurson (Tom Doherty/Forge hardcover, 10 April 2012).
The Burry Man's Day (Dandy Gilver #2) by Catriona McPherson (Constable & Robinson UK hardcover, 2006).
the walk of the Burry Man, feelings are running high.
With his pagan greenery, his lucky pennies and the nips of whisky he is
treated to wherever he goes, the Burry Man has much to offend stricter
souls like the minister or temperance pamphleteer. And then at the Fair,
in full view of everyone — including Dandy Gilver, invited to hand out
the prizes — the Burry Man falls down dead. If he has been poisoned then
the list of suspects includes anyone with a bottle of whisky in the
house, and, here at Queensferry, that means just about everyone.
And I picked up this one for Katy:
The Dangerous Edge of Things (Tai Randolph #1) by Tina Whittle (Poisoned Pen Press trade paperback, 1 February 2011).
