July reviews

July proved to be a quite varied month of reading - from dinosaurs working as PIs to political satire to cross-dressing amateur sleuth to the Russian front to a PI tale told from a dog's perspective to spies in postwar Washington.  My read of the month, however, was a gritty police procedural set in Peterborough and its surrounds by Eva Dolan.
