The Baskerville Legacy by John O’Connell

Hardback copy of John O'Connell's book

If you’re a first time reader here you might not know that I’ve been plodding my way through the Sherlock Holmes books, including Hound of the Baskervilles, and love a bit of crime/mystery fiction in my reading stack.

Black Day At The Bosphorus Cafe by M.H.Baylis

M.H.Baylis Rex Tracey #3 book
