I'm reading a bunch of category romances and I need something to counteract them. Some sour to go with the sweet.
I think a book like Perfume would do the trick, except I read that already, maybe as long as 20 years ago now, but I'm not ready to read it again.
How about a good hardboiled cynical detective? Anyone got one? I'd like some fluff in it though. An early Spenser would be good---pre-Susan Silverman. Except I've read them all.
And Dexter would be good too, except I've read those as well.
