I am still suffering with the cold and cough I brought back from Hay on Wye. But I am enjoying reading Reasonable Doubts by Gianrico Carofiglio, the third in the Guido Guerrieri series featuring the defence lawyer from Bari.

I hope to be back to normal posting at the weekend.

Oh, lucky you, reading that book! But very sorry about the cold, I guess that is part of the risk of a wet Wales, even with all the books.
I should not be too envious of your reading material, though, given the collection I received from the wonderful Karen today! I shall be quiet for weeks, now.
BTW, have you read "The Coroner's Lunch" by Colin Cotterill? (Quercus). I think you would love it, the protagonist is a 72 year old charmer. Say no more.
But do get well soon, I wish you a speedy recovery. I hope reading about all that Italian sun will warm your bones.

Thanks for your good wishes, Maxine. I am feeling a tad better today, and at the moment the sun is shining here in Devon.

I have not read The Coroner's Lunch, but I am certain I would enjoy reading about a protagonist who is slightly older than me, and not languishing in a retirement home in Weston-super-Mare.
The Carofiglio is good, and I will post a review next week.

I can recommend Charity Ends at Home, another of Colin Watson's Flaxborough Chronicles. This will give you the opportunity to find out if crime novels set in warm climates are any more efficacious against colds than novels set in cold places.
