liked it fairly well. Very interesting mystery in historical setting - early Ireland 600 AD & early celts. Author Peter [Tremayne] Ellis is cited as an authority on early celts. I plan to read some others when I get thru the load I have on my bookshelf.
some of cherryh's early novels. I particvlarly liked "Port Eternity" ( a takeoff on Arturian legend) and "wave without a shore" in which you can see the beginnings of humans and alien cultures interacting in her work.
This NOT the march of the 10,000 and xenophon. "A slave girl named Auria begins her ascension to freedom and self discovery. She rescues a child that has been put out to die, and the flee to the mountains." Set in Ancient Greece o/a 500 B.C.
V.I. Warshawski investigates night lights, which turns into a murder investigation and in conflict with the Feds and the Patriot Act. Her usual assorted cast of characters and friends make for a good read
NYT calls it "a thinking man's thriller". Amblers were best sellers in the early 80's. This is my third one and he is well worth reading. His main characters are not professional "spooks" but handle themselves well. He seems to like writers and journalists for this role.
What can I say; just one of the best books ever written for any age! I have read it over a dozen times to children and education majors. he only problem is that "EVERYONE" reads it to their class starting with 1st or 2nd grade; upside is that it is meaningfull and can be understood at many levels
