Rising Road by Sharon Davies (Amazon Vine)
An account of a notorious 1921 murder trial of a minister accused of murdering a priest for marrying his daughter to a Catholic.
Twenty-five pages in it’s already obvious that Davies is a natural storyteller.
This Body of Death by Elizabeth George (Kindle)
Lynley and Havers are back. Solving a vile child murder. I guess I should be happy it’s not a firebombing of a school bus full of saintly nuns, each with an adorable kitten-clutching tot on their lap. But if that whack job Daidre Trahair is back I swear this is my last of this series.
Twisted Faith: A Minister's Obsession and the Murder That Destroyed a Church by Gregg Olsen (Kindle)
New true crime from Gregg Olsen = me wondering if I’m really to old to call out sick and stay in bed all day reading. A new book by Olsen should automatically result in a national holiday but someone in charge fails to see this obvious wisdom.
Splendour and Squalor by Marcus Scriven (KIndle)
The subtitle says this is the story of the “Disgrace and disintegration of three aristocratic dynasties.” Well, that’s one way to put it. “Peers Gone Wild” would be the shorter version. Insanely entertaining.
