This book is great fun, a real action packed romp. Featuring a blend of characters from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to Harry Houdini, H.P. Lovecraft and Marie Laveau, it is full of clashing egos and dynamic personalities. For lovers of mystery and fantasy alike.
First in the very popular Aunt Dimity series. This introduces you to the main characters and their situations very well. A must for those who want to know the beginning or begin at the beginning. Recommended!
Hilarious! Any cat lover will identify with the antics portrayed here. Not all those cute kittens. These are the real thing and the captions and "hobbies" of the cats are priceless. Good condition with just a discreet fang mark in one corner of the cover from my own little scamp cat, Alchemy.
I am a big fan of Dan Simmons and I enjoyed this book very much. It takes a novel approach to the Battle of the Little Big Horn and the last days of the Sioux nation. Simmons books often have mystical/supernatural overtones and in this case it suits the subject matter very well. It is an odd but appealing blend of accurate and realistic history juxtaposed with Native American culture and spiritualism. Very original. I would recommend it!
This is an excellent book, but I want to note that it was also published under the title "The Indian Bride." I bought it not realizing I had read it under that title. It is well worth reading and one of Fossum's better novels.
In the tradition of his bestselling "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." This time Berendt writes of Venice, as city filled with masks, mystery and a series of riddles. Once again the book weaves stories of the city and the people into an atmospheric tale of magical decadence.
