  1. Oh dear, I haven’t read a single one of those. Except for Tha Maltese Falcon but that was decades ago. An interesting looking array there though, I need to catch up with the Anya Lipska series

    1. I really can’t tell you how many books in the lists of my favourite reviewers I have still to read. I would have to live more lives to be able to catch up with all I want to read. Happy New Year, Benadette!

  2. I’ll be interested in your review of the Alan Furst. I haven’t read any of his books but they keep appearing on my recommendations and the period setting really appeals to me.
