The Wood Beyond (Dalziel and Pascoe Mysteries) by Reginald Hill
The Wood Beyond (Dalziel and Pascoe Mysteries)

nancy b. webb, September 30, 2011

one of the best insights into wwII england's trench fighting and discipline - couched into a most interesting heart rending mystery novel. all of mr. hill's novels reach my mystery 'best' but this one is particularly fine. thank you, nancy b. webb

Dark Star by Alan Furst
Dark Star

nancy b. webb, June 12, 2010

I have discovered Alan Furst this year and am getting a view of history that eluded me with nonfiction accounts of Europe and the pre WWII invasions. Mr. Furst creates a spine tingling tale and history at the same time. This story captures the seas of Europe and their casualties, ordinary merchant vessels that become extraordinary in times of war. I am smitten with the horrors and the mystifying quality of this war of neighbors, as close as Illinois and Missouri, yet different tongues and cultures. Ancient feuds that bring indifference or hate. And yet, the diversity of the crew of the merchant ship, the loyalty to itself as well as to their country and its allies.
