Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Reading progress update: I've read 280 out of 481 pages.

The Golden Age of Murder - Martin Edwards

Part III felt like the driest part of the book so far; I admit my mind wandered more often through these chapters as Edwards felt like he was going through the motions with some of it.  This could just be me though, struggling to connect with names I've never heard of until recently.


He's also very heavy handed with Sayers' "secret shame"; he mentions it so often, so explicitly, that I'm left wondering if Edwards is a man who would keep your secret, but remind you of his discretion and generosity at every available opportunity.
