Iain Pears, An Instance of the Fingerpost

Just finished Iain Pears, An Instance of the Fingerpost - and it is WELL worth a read. It's an historical crime novel set in the 1660s in Oxford and it is very enjoyable. It has four parts, each part is an account from the point of view of a character, all of whom suspect each other. So events get reported from different points of view and you have to weave your way in and out of their suspicions and prejudices to get to the bottom of the mystery. Read it.

Just started Guglielmo Gorni's Il Dante Perduto about a forged manuscript of Duecento poetry. A sort of thriller, but much more serious. I should stop reading this stuff.
