The Weather Outside Is Frightful....

... so if you want to cocoon today and read without leaving the comfort of your home, we've got some suggestions:
  • Download an mystery on audiobookA Death In Uptown takes place in the 1980s.  Publishers Weekly says, "The vividly realized setting of this impressive first mystery is Uptown, an ethnically diverse Chicago neighborhood peopled with winos, street preachers, students, derelicts in doorways, juvenile gangs, Iranians, Greeks, Koreans, Mexicans, Pakistanis and other citizens of the world. Nice-guy private eye Paul Whelan is an Uptown native who avoids violence when he can, uses fists when he must, and often defuses incendiary situations by establishing common ground with very unlikely types."
The author also wrote Body in Belmont Harbor and Killer on Argyle Street, which you can order through the Uptown Chicago History blog (see the left-hand sidebar).
