What I'm Reading / Doris Miles Disney - Holy Cow!

I just finished Who Rides a Tiger by Doris Miles Disney. Her Wikipedia entry:

This was definitely a "Wow!" book. The structure is that of a young woman discovering and reading the diary of her recently deceased aunt and unraveling the mystery of her life.

(Kate and I both loved it and that doesn't always happen.)

Now I'm reading Christie's Five Little Pigs, for the third time, just to see how she did it. And then I'm going on to Peril at End House.

I also have an early copy of The Red Locked Room, a collection of locked-room stories by Tetsuya Ayukawa, and I'm reading those in between chapters of Christie...
