I recently finished Speed Dating with the Dead by Scott Nicholson. It was fun, but I think Nicholson creates a ride rather than a story in this one.

I also just finished The Final Solution by Michael Chabon. I've never read a Sherlock Holmes before so I don't know whether this was a good or bad portrayal of the famous sleuth. However, I really enjoyed a take on a Holmes that had retired and grown old. It's a very short story (about 130 pages), and I think it's been written to give us a peak at the legend in his later years.

I'm now just reading a few short stories and will be starting Kraken by China Mieville. Although he's my favourite author, I tend to practice the fine art of delayed gratification with his books.
