I had a big treat this week: an early copy of Simone St. James’s upcoming book, The Other Side of Midnight!
In this one, a reluctant medium finds herself drawn into a former friend’s murder inquiry, pulling her back into a world that she’s been avoiding since their big falling out years before. As always, St. James’s depiction of life in the 1920s is pitch-perfect, and her heroine the sort of person you’d like to visit with over a large pot of tea.
For those An Inquiry Into Love and Death fans out there, happy news: it’s Inspector Merriken who’s on the case.
The bad news? The Other Side of Midnight isn’t out until April. But I can promise that it is worth the wait.
Other than that, it’s been Portugal, Portugal and more Portugal. And a side of Clifford, the Big Red Dog.
