MONGOLIAN YURTS



I have been rather ill [bronchitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, and a chest infection] this week and could not even concentrate to read. 
I had begun The Shadow Walker by Michael Walters, the first  Nergui and Doripalam investigation set in Mongolia, and was very impressed with the excellent beginning.
I frequently mention the locations of crime novels to Mrs Crime Scraps with the hope that we can return on holiday to Sweden, Finland and Italy or even visit Norway for the first time, but apparently the credit crunch has struck the Crime Scraps budget. 
However Mrs Crime Scraps was so impressed by the Mongolian setting of the Michael Walters series that we will be spending part of the summer in a Yurt on Bodmin Moor! Luckily it only rains 350 days a year the rest of the time it is snowing.

A review of The Shadow Walker will appear on Euro Crime in the New Year.

Hope your Yurt does not get knocked over in the night by an overenthusiastic goat or sheep! Looking forward to ther review, and hope you are now recovered from the lurgy.
