The Circle of Zero

Another creative story from Stanley Weinbaum.

The Lion's Skin

by Rafael Sabatini

An ok adventure / romance, centered around a scheme to prove an English lord's Jacobite political leanings for the purpose of revenge. The evil young lord Ostermore and his mother add enough interest to rescue this book. Three stars, but there are better Sabatini books on this site.

Clouds of Witness

by Dorothy L. Sayers

Well written, intricate murder mystery. Lord Peter Wimsey brings his renowned detective skills to the aid of his brother, the Duke of Denver, when the Duke is charged with the murder of his sister Mary's fiance.

I enjoyed the book and highly recommend it to mystery fans, but I really didn't "get" the odd slang dialect used by some of the aristocracy, including Lord Peter himself, while some of the servants converse in perfect English. Maybe that's the way it was in 1920's England, I don't expect that the author would simply invent that.

There is a lot packed into this crime / mystery novel. Plots, counter-plots, suspense, treachery, surprise twists, and even a little humor. I enjoyed it very much. Highly recommended.
