Reading progress update: I've read 129 out of 311 pages.
The Deductions of Colonel Gore - Lynn Brock

did just a bit more, and now I think I’ll shut it down until tomorrow. I leave Col. Gore very unsure of whether the sudden death had a sinister aspect, or not. on the other hand, I’m convinced this was murder, plain and simple. I think we need some kind of pathologist’s report...

it’s really got me in its clutches now. enjoying! the few reviews I scanned before I started it seemed to suggest it’s a bit too drawn out for its own good...but a rewarding read in spite of that. plus, the novel ends up around page 270, or so, and then I get a short story. so it’s not like the novel actually breaks 300 pages, like I originally thought.

a lively start, with strong characters and lots of things about them for me to ponder already. obviously, this set of friendships and marriages is stoked for murder.
