I do read a lot of books that are not historical crime fiction, but sometimes that does not appear to be the case. I certainly do enjoy historical crime fiction especially when the writer has taken care to do careful research, and create a believable atmosphere.

In The Informer by Craig Nova "you can smell the cigars, sausages and perfumes of Weimar Berlin."

Norman - Thanks for the lovely review. I actually like it when you review historical mysteries, because I like them very much, myself. This one goes on my TBR list ('though I confess I'm not exactly sure how long it'll be 'till I get to it : ( ).

Thanks Margot and Nancy.
TBR piles breed rapidly and when two non-blogging friends heard I was incapacitated they sent and brought round two very thick non-fiction books as presents!
