Spade & Dagger

Thank you Mr C for such an enticing review - I was vaguely aware of the series, but an enthusiastic personal recommendation is always a great motivator & I've ordered the first book as such a multi-dimensional crime novel is just my thing. (Incidentally, I learned a lot of practical gardening info from your previous book recommendation on Darwin & weeds.)


I read Death in Bordeaux a few years ago now and very much enjoyed it but at that stage the second book had only just been published and wasn't available at the library so I made a note of it for later and then promptly forgot.
I am going to have to start at the beginning again as I have only fairly hazy memories of how the story played out but I will definitely read through the quartet now.
Thank you for the reminder!


Sold! I'm off to check the library catalogue.


Having enjoyed Allan Massie writing about the Romans I shall check the library for these.


I'm very much enjoying the first one - so thank you for the recommendation. I shall definitely be seeking out book two - but it's taken me most of this week to read Death in Bordeaux so I'm impressed by how quickly you read. (Just had a cynical female thought that if Mrs C makes dinner, then you don't get interrupted!)
I've been wondering if Allan Massie is a Maigret fan - and I've just googled him and see that he is.
