I remember this book- it's quite creepily compelling!
I really enjoyed James Long's novel "Silence and Shadows" another story with echoes of reincarnation, though not to the extent of "Ferney"

Yes, it is compelling, Annis - I'm very much enjoying it. I shall look out for Silence and Shadows - thanks!

Amazing how that happens. Honestly you've shown a lot of restraint - after my first EC I went on quite a buying spree.

Where are you located, Nefer? It should be readily available at most stores right now, as it's in paperback.

Being on tour, one of the things I like to do to thank the stores that host me is to buy a book, so the pile has grown a bit: besides Magnifico, I bought the new Sourcebooks edition of Daphne Du Maurier's My Cousin Rachel (which wierdly has no copyright page with pub history) and a new copy of Dumas's Count of Monte Cristo.
THE QUEEN'S VOW available on June 12, 2012!
THE TUDOR SECRET, Book I in the Elizabeth I Spymaster Chronicles
[B]THE CONFESSIONS OF CATHERINE DE MEDICI
THE LAST QUEEN

LOL. Actually, I'm trying to pace myself and not read all her books too quickly. I'm trying to savor them as much as possible. Difficult, though.

With boswellbaxter's recommendation of Rebecca Gable fresh in mind I found out at the hipermarket that there are three of her novels translated into Spanish. I hate translations but I'm not that good with German so I came back home with her Der König der purpurnen Stadt (The King of the Crimson City) (750 pages? :D ) and a couple of Arturo Perez-Reverter's.
You guys are a bad influence for my endless TBR pile ;)

Yes I have that problem of books jumping into my shopping basket too, it happens all the time!

I've just ordered from Amazon marketplace "The Perfect Sinner" by Will Davenport, who is a pen-name of the above-mentioned James Long. Think I'll have to investigate "silence and Shadows" too!

You won't be sorry - they're both goodies. But make sure you read them in the right order! :D
