Washington Black - Esi Edugyan
Trial and Error (Arcturus Crime Classics) - Anthony Berkeley

1. Brother Cadfael: A career change can hardly get any more radical than going from crusading soldier to herbalist monk (with a sideline of detection).

 

2. Captain Arthur Hastings: From soldier in WWI to London detective (of sorts) to cattle rancher in "the Argentine".

 

3. Washington Black: From child slave on a sugarcane plantation to explorer to painter (supporting himself by working as a delivery boy) to scientist and scientific illustrator -- all in the space of barely 20 years.

 

4. Mr. Lawrence Todhunter: From philantropist and occasional literary columnist to murderer (which btw is not a spoiler -- it's the book's explicit premise).

 

5. Ed Hunter: From printer's apprentice / assistant to amateur detective to "carnie".

 

Special mention:

 

Miss Maud Silver: From governess to private investigator.

Witty and insightful
Career Change: How To Conquer The Fear Of Failing - John Allen

This insightful guide on how to make the career change you've been considering for ages is witty and goes straight to the point without making you feel anything has been missed. I particularly like how the author uses relatable examples from his life to make you actually consider the idea of taking such a bold step. A must-read for anyone looking for a gentle nudge out the door and into a world of possibilities.
