What I'm reading

14th May 2010 at 01:00

Fever of the Bone by Val McDermid. I'm a big fan of detective fiction, especially women writers. I find the characters in her novels fascinating. It's worth reading her books in the order of publication to see how she develops them, although I haven't been keen on the TV adaptations. I'm also reading Spin Cycle, which is a review of the publicity and research around charter schools in the US, by Jeffrey Henig.
