The Puzzly – The ISOTCMN Book Of The Month – November 2016

November 2016 draws to a close with only one month left of what could hardly be described as one of the finest years in recent memory. But there’s still plenty of things to look forward to, especially the awarding of the Puzzly for November. So that’s good news at least.

It’s been a busier month than some, with twelve books in total.

Those were:

One of the easiest Puzzlies ever this one. If it hadn’t been for the winner, Dispensation Of Death would have walked it, but this month the Puzzly goes to Kate Ellis for A High Mortality of Doves – an evocative portrayal of immediately-post-war Britain with an dark and clever mystery woven throughout the tale. One of the best books I’ve read in ages, and probably Kate’s finest book, which is saying something indeed.

Right, next month? A few new books first of all and then? Who knows, apart from an allegedly rubbish John Rhode book, for reasons that will become clear.
