That was the thing that more or less confirmed my opinion that Cornwell is genuinely crazy. Not charming crazy, not eccentric crazy, just plain crazy.Originally Posted by Critical;2665966;
Anyway, I am now reading through a stack of used mysteries I bought this summer. The first book I read was Asking for the Moon by Reginald Hill. I love the Dalziel and Pascoe books, but honestly, if the first one I had read had been this book, I probably wouldn't have gone any further. The fourth novelette (the book contains four of them), One Small Step is just a smidge too silly, and I likely wouldn't have been enticed any further. I followed this up with The Bridesmaid by Ruth Rendell, which I loved, and am now starting Death of an Expert Witness by P.D. James. All good stuff.
