A good police procedure mystery novel. A mystery exploring sexism, racism and class as seen thru the eyes of retired Inspector Wexford as he is called into help.

This 3rd book in historical mystery series set in 18th century Beijing, China, brings all the suspense and imperial palace intrigue. Good detective work delving into all the layers of palace life by Li Du, former imperial librarian. Now a favorite series!

Anna Zarides dresses as a eunuch to move freely in Constantinople society as a physician hoping to prove her twin brother‘s innocence for killing a nobleman.
Intrigue and suspense in interaction with Roman Pope, Emperors and threat of another Crusade provide a great read.

Malice: A Mystery | Keigo Higashino

I prefer more suspense and excitement in my mystery books so this book was a little disappointing in that respect; however it did offer some twists and turns with a surprise ending.

Wild camping? Middle-aged couple, now homeless, husband just diagnosed with terminal illness, and nothing more to lose decide to walk the 630 miles of the South West Coast Path. Crazy huh? Beautiful story of love, hope, physical endurance and nature‘s redemptive qualities!

HardcoverHearts What a great synopsis and wrap up! I can‘t wait to see more this year of your reading. 3y

The Word Is Murder | Anthony Horowitz

After reading “Magpie Murders” by Anthony Horowitz and thoroughly enjoyed that book, I was very disappointed in this book. Anyone else feel this way?

HardcoverHearts So disappointed! I felt that it was a pretentious exercise and a huge waste of my time. I will think twice about reading another of his work. 4y
