Do you know the work of Susan Hill? If not I can really recommend it to you for a good read. I rarely find one book of hers in the Library which I haven't read, but on Saturday morning I found one. It is 'The Various Haunts of Men' (the title is a quotation from George Crabbe 'The various haunts of men require the pencil, they defy the pen.') It is a Simon Serrailler mystery and if you like the books of Ruth Rendell, you will like these. I found it quite unputdownable and even got up to read it when I couldn't sleep last night (this meant a two hour sleep this afternoon as I was shattered).
Please note that I have gone on to less bold type - hope everyone can still read it. I am thinking about redesigning my whole page but hardly dare in case I lose the whole lot. Courage is needed.
