Well, it's April Fool's Day here in Australia - I hope no-one gets fooled.
I have just finished a good thriller by Simon Beckett called The Chemistry of Death. Well written for its genre, and not a bad ending although I did guess the baddie.
I am reading an historical novel called The Ruby Ring by Diane Haeger, which is about Raphael in Rome, and although the story is good, the book needs a good editor. Three times so far I have found someone who has been belittled has suffered a 'sleight', and there are way too many references to Raphael feeling like 'a little boy in Urbino again'. The poor heroine is also just a bit too everything - beautiful, witty and so on.
