Egypt to Greece

Here’s what I read in February. Try them yourself:

1) Sharpe’s Triumph by Bernard Cornwell. Second in the series where Sharpe is now a Sergeant.

2) Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey. This was an audiobook as Richard III had been found and all the print copies had been borrowed from the Library.

3) The Hunting by Sam Hawksmoor. A break from Historical Fiction, this is the second in the series following the story of Genie Magee (http://www.samhawksmoor.com/) I can also recommend this author’s earlier book, Diamonds: The Rush of ’79 (as Sam North)

4) How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes by Maria Konnikova. I was gutted to miss a talk by this lady at my local library but read her book nonetheless. Shows how to observe things rather than just see them: http://www.mariakonnikova.com/

5) The Mask of Ra by Paul Doherty. This is a detective story set in Ancient Egypt written by a very prolific author. I read this in two days! http://www.paulcdoherty.com/

6) In the Red by Mark Tavener. I loved the TV adaptation of this in 1998 and is very apt for what’s been going on the last five years!

OK, so Greece isn’t here but it will be next month.
