excellent, intelligent, atmospheric mystery series by Peter Mays. Second in a trilogy that takes place on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.

The Hare with Amber Eyes (Illustrated Edition): A Hidden Inheritance

gorzd, January 8, 2013

original, evocative, an amazing combination of personal/family memoir and the large historical events that are the foreground and background to the story of the fascinating Ephrussi family
AND the coming of age of an artist
exquisite language
I cannot put it down

Berlin Noir (Penguin Crime/Mystery) by Philip Kerr
Berlin Noir (Penguin Crime/Mystery)

gorzd, January 20, 2012

best noir ever - memorable characters, vivid sense of time and place. Detective Bernie Gunther in Berlin before, during, after WWII. An amazing page-turner rich in historical detail. Hard to believe Kerr is a contemporary Brit.

Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
Wolf Hall

gorzd, January 3, 2011

an amazing journey behind the scenes in the court of Henry VIII
dense, vivid, exacting and exquisitely researched
reaches far beyond most historical fiction because of deep and rich character development
a great page-turner and superlative story-telling that turns old assumptions on their heads.
Brava!

The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo
The Redbreast

gorzd, January 2, 2010

could-not-put-it-down...
not just a great mystery/thriller, but a damned good novel - complicated important characters, vivid sense of place, and interesting history
and Nesbo's other books are just as good!
