Well, this will be the last Puzzly for a couple of months, due to the Flynn project – see my previous post. Just to clarify, as a couple of people got the wrong end of the stick, Dean Street Press were delighted at the opportunity to publish Flynn – they needed no persuading from me at all.
Right, March reading… eight books in total – actually ten, but haven’t got round to reviewing the others, not a bad haul for a busy teaching month. The books in question were:
Dean Street Press again with another rediscovered gem.
A classic country house mystery
A change of pace for David Mark, an effective recent-historical thriller.
Scientific detection from Dr Manson and, yes, Dean Street Press
Enjoyable modern day cosy mystery.
Another Ludovic Travers Mystery – not the strongest but still very enjoyable
Strangling on the top of a double decker bus.
Outstanding POW whodunit from the British Library
That’s the lot, so best of the bunch? Well, Death In Captivity is definitely a must read book, but, as will be a surprise to no one, I’m going Flynn this month. What can I say, I’m in a bit of a Flynn mood. While Murder En Route seems to have excited more people, I’m going to go with The Creeping Jenny Mystery aka The Crime At The Crossways, such a treat, a classic country house mystery done so well. And you know what? You can find out in six months time about how good it is too…
