The Cryptogram

by James De Mille

I really enjoyed this. It starts off rather slowly, weaving a complex tale of two families, several love stories, betrayed friendships and European travel. About half way through, the pace picks up and it is a whirlwind of intrigue to the end!

Bringing Nothing to the Party

by Paul Carr

An interesting, light-hearted narrative of life in the world of the "dotcom" boom in London, albeit a narrative with serious consequences for global finance and peoples' lives. Well worth reading, with some very funny passages about people who control companies that every reader will have used.

Unfortunately, the footnotes don't work on the Sony LRF version.

Another winner from this wonderful and under-rated author. Having read and thoroughly enjoyed "The Penal Colony", I decided to read this and was not disappointed.

Herley beautifully creates situations in which to explore alternate moralities using succinctly defined and plausible characters.

A book which compels the reader from beginning to end.

The Camera Fiend

by E.W. Hornung

Great fun! Well-written and with a twist at the end which the seasoned reader of detective novels from this era should be able to work out. The characters are believable and the plot moves at a good pace. Well worth reading.
