Read 2020 - 12 - Still Bleeding

The title of this book, Still Bleeding by Steve Mosby, could also refer to my current peri-menopausal state - and there goes my readership - wait, am I assuming I have one? This is another book that made it's way to my to-read-pile courtesy of The Bestwick (he's a big Steve Mosby fan). I'd tried to read Still Bleeding once before, but the opening subject matter about a wife feeling worthless and then committing suicide, felt a little too raw for me. Although, not suicidal, I was not in a good place mentally.

Eventually, on this second instance having made it past that first part, I enjoyed the book. A crime thriller with some twisty turns and plenty of thorns. Here are some of Steve's words from that first part:

I was oblivious to the fact the world had quietly shattered without my noticing.

side note: I noticed when my world shattered
another lighter-hearted note: reading about maggots when eating a tuna sandwich, or any sort of sandwich, does not aid digestion.
