Welcome to Cragside – let’s hope you emerge alive!

I like it when authors step outside their comfort zone, testing the waters in new areas. This may be why I was drawn to MJ Porter’s book, Cragside: A 1930s murder mystery. After all, Ms Porter tends to write books set in the distant past – like very distant – but here she is, presenting …

The Prisoner of Paradise – or what happens when you obsess over a painting

I must admit being quite intrigued when I read the blurb to Mr Samborn’s book, The Prisoner of Paradise. I am rather fond of stories that take their starting point in works of art, and in this case it is Tintoretto’s gigantic masterpiece, Paradise, in Venice that has Mr Samborn’s protagonist utterly enthralled.
