Twenty Five books – number thirteen

It was a total surprise when I got to the end of this book and realised I’d really enjoyed it. My sister picked it up at Barter books and told me it had Christie-like scenes in it. And it did have the slight feel of an old detective novel. I didn’t notice when it was written initially and was about a third of the way in to the book when I was struck by some of the terminology she used and looked on the front page for the first published date to discover it was written in 1992. That’s 20 years ago! It was interesting to read what things were like back then.

And like I said I did enjoy it. The main character is well developed and it was gritty and a good story. 

I am almost halfway through the year and now past the halfway mark of books to read. Yay.
