The re-read marathon continues!
This week, I re-read two more of the Sarah Caudwell mysteries: The Shortest Way to Hades and The Sirens Sang of Murder. For those of you watching the new PBS series, Silk, these tongue in cheek books about British barristers make a fun companion read. They’re a little bit Rumpole of the Bailey with a touch of the absurd entirely their own.
Then, in my quest to revisit the Heyers I generally don’t re-read, I dug out The Reluctant Widow— it’s still way down on my list of Heyers (something about the heroine just doesn’t click for me), but it is a fine example of the way a talented author can make even a truly absurd plot premise work. For some reason, it makes me want to re-read The Talisman Ring. That one may be up next….
