Recommend a book meme  
I shouldn't be doing this - I have too many books I'm not getting through already. But! Recommend me a book, based on what you know of me & my interests.

Edit: Oh yes, and as this is a meme, re-post in your own journal. I got it from elhamisabel

I've just read Mistress of the Art of Death. It's a historical murder mystery and the central character is a woman doctor from Salerno. It has a bit of a feminist bent but without being anachronistic. Very well researched and interesting to see how women and Jews were treated in medieval England.

That does sound interesting, thanks!

Did you ever read that Malta book I gave you - the Scimitar & the Sword, I think it was. I had it for yonks before I read it.

Yes! It was really good! Philip loved it too. We both read it in Greece, I believe it's still there! Nobody's journalled since!

Oh yes, I'd forgotten you'd taken it to Greece. Glad you both enjoyed it. Maybe a catch will show up in three years :-)

Do you read many historical murder mysteries? Most of the ones I've read have been sourced through silja.

Yup, I read a fair number, most I source through the libraries, I like medieval and roman mysteries.

Now I'm wondering what communities made you think of that :-)


I already have a book or tow from Rivercassini, from the convention, but I can't remember which ones.
