I just read a new mystery.

For those of you who don't know, I host a monthly group here in Del Mar, California at a store called The Book Works. I just finished January's selection by Jacqueline Winspear called MESSENGER OF TRUTH. I really enjoyed this one. Not only is it a good mystery, but it's right up my alley because the story takes place in 1931, during The Great Depression, a period I know well.

I've written two novels about that era, NIGHT JAZZ and NIGHT GLITTER and I found this novel to be an excellent read and full of historical insights about The Great War (WWI) as well as deeper questions about the disparity between the rich and poor.

Anyone out there a fan of Ms. Winspear? What else would you recommend?
