I finished Alexandria and really enjoyed it; it was a bit padded, I thought, but the history was informative and interesting and I adore Falco as I always do. His relationship with Helena is fabulous and their banter definitely sets the tone of the books for me. I also really like the way their children's actions are described; obviously she knows kids. ;)

Looking forward to Nemesis.

Falco is pretty much my main man in the historical mystery category. I can't help myself; I adore him, on a number of levels. I love that wittiness, and the grit. For me, at least, he is one of the better male figures in historical mysteries.

I was not wild about Alexandria, but the new one Nemesis, I think is quite good. For longstanding Falco fans, it has some surprises, and they literally made me blink!

Also, the Falco Companion is a lot of fun, too!

I understand that Lindsey is the recipient of the Cartier life achievement award this year. I'm very glad for her.

Just finished Alexandria (which I thought was a hoot) and posted a book review and giveaway on my blog. The giveaway is for the US only (sorry!) and open through midnight EDT June 14.
