Last night I started Maurizio de Giovanni's I Will Have Vengeance, only to discover that the main character sees dead people and solves cases partially based on what he's seen. This is just not my thing in crime fiction, but I'm trying to read as many titles on the list of books eligible for the International Dagger Award. I hate to call it quits, but at the same time, I have other books I want to get through.
Someone help me out here -- should I finish it because it's on the list or should I drop it? And will someone give it a home (absolutely free) if I choose not to read it?
