David Roberts - Hollow Crown

1936. I have come rather late to this series but am really enjoying it. These are whodunnits but very superior ones. We have an English Lord partnered as sleuth with young Verity Browne, Communist. These adds some spice to the proceedings but also a clever device to provide social commentary. It is for this reason that any of these wopuld be very good for reading groups. This book covers the Jarrow march, the Cable Street Riots, Fascism, oh and Wallace Simpson!
