WWW: Wednesdays

WWW: Wednesdays is hosted by MizB ofver at Should Be Reading.

To play along just answer the following three questions....

*What are you currently reading?
*What did you just recently finish reading?
*What do you think you'll read next?

Current: Shroud of Darkness by E. C. R. Lorac A vintage mystery from 1954. There were five strangers on a fogbound train--a psychiatrist's pretty secretary, an agitated young man, a tweedy lady with a deep voice, a stockbrokerish businessman, and an eel-like, unsavory young man. One was brutally attacked in the choking black fog at Paddington Station. Attempted murder becomes bona fide manslaughter, and examination of the intimate lives of the passengers involved Chief Inspector MacDonald in a macabre game of hide-and-seek in which one man had tried to find his identity, and another was ready to kill to preserve the shroud of darkness that obscured his.

I love the "Red, White And Blue" Theme of your up next list. They all sound intriguing. Shroud of Darkness sounds really good. I love vintage stories. Anything between 1900 and 1960 is so cool. Yet another book to add to my TBR!

Here's my WWW: <
