The Death of Dalziel by Reginald Hill

Cover of

I refused to read any reviews, blurbs or other promotional material for this book as I didn’t want to know what the title meant. So I won’t tell you either! I found the plot a bit convoluted and not Hill’s best though it has good touches and it’s not bad, just not my favourite but still quite enjoyable.

The Single Helix by Steve Jones

Cover of

This is a good kind of book for reading in those spaces of time where you don’t really have time to read. I could do with more books like it. It’s a compendium of a hundred of Steve Jones’s newspaper science articles (from the Daily Telegraph I think) and makes for interesting and thought provoking interludes without needing to engage your brain too deeply.

Oxford Letters by Veronica Stallwood

Cover of

I’ve had mixed feelings about this series in the past but I enjoyed this one after leaving the series alone for a couple of years. Well written, well plotted and entertaining story and the characters seemed true to life.

My Life As A Fake by Peter Carey

Cover of

Intriguing in the beginning, it got slower and slower until I found myself skim reading the last fifty pages or so just to get rid of it. Not my thing though I did think it was quite promising. Just a bit too weird for me I think.
