Austen inspired mystery
Pictures Of Perfection - Reginald Hill

Hill loved Austen, and it shows in this mystery which draws quite a bit from Austen.  It isn't just the use of quotes of her letters to start each chapter, but also in Hill's using a turn of sentence to open roads of meaning.  Austen did that too.

 

The plot concerns a small town, and Hill makes good use of the beginning and ending chapters.  The town is full of your standard country strange people with various issues.  It is a fun little read.

Merry Chritsmas and a Christmas gift

Merry Xmas! 

I have published a post today where I also share free links to download one of my books. This is my only non-fiction book. It's bilingual (English-Spanish) with plenty of pictures, and it's very short. I thought I would share it here, just in case.

Feel free to pass it on.

And, Merry Christmas!

Christmas card

The Pictures - Guy Bolton

as shocking as the murder plot line has been...the real terror comes from learning that the head of MGM wanted to cut one of the songs from The Wizard Of Oz, Judy Garland singing Somewhere Over The Rainbow. luckily, not a successful crime perpetrated in this novel, or in reality.

I absolutely love it, and I recommend it to fans of Darktown by Mullen, fans of Joseph Kanon, and people who like LA Confidential.

Guy Bolton? you mean...as in “Bolton, Wodehouse, and Kern!”?

 

(no, Tigus)

 

apparently not that Guy Bolton.

 

(how could that even be, you silly fellow)

 

whatever, it doesn’t matter. this Mystery set in Hollywood, 1939, is intensely excellent, so far.
