Lazy Sunday Service

It's quite a long time since I read a book in a single day.  Yesterday I worked my way through Edward Wilson's superb, The Envoy, a Cold War spy story set in 1950s Britain that skillfully blends real world events and people with a fictional tale.  It's complex, multi-layered, atmospheric, full of historical and political insight, and reveals deep insight into human relations.  Full review in due course.  I also hope to post reviews of David Downey's excellent, Silesian Station, and Arnaldur Indridason's, Black Skies, this week.

'Resolved' is a relative term if you live on an unfinished estate
