I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. The quotes you used definitely make the book more appealing to me, Olga. If not for those, I might have passed on this one.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. He can write, that’s for sure. I think you might enjoy the book I’m reading now, set in London. Take care, and happy new year!

  2. Olga, this book sounds like a delicious treat for mystery lovers. I appreciate your review. Happy New Year, my friend. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. It is quite a treat. I hope the year 2021 starts well for you. Big hugs and love to Crystal.

  3. There’s nothing like a great mystery book, and this one fits the bill! Thank you for sharing Olga! Happy New Year!

    Sounds a great read Olga. Your review makes it all the more tempting. Just so many other books I’m dying to get to – many, thanks to you LOL. Happy New Year my friend! Stay safe and cosy. <3 xx

    1. Thanks, Debby. I know what you mean. This year felt very long, but not long enough to get through the list of books. Well, we’ll keep reading. Take care, stay warm and safe, dear Debby. And Happy New Year to you and your husband. ♥

    Olga, you have always been a motivator and your reviews on anything matter a lot Have a wonderful year ahead

    1. Have a great 2021 as well, Parveen and thanks for your kind words!

    1. Thanks, Sally. I hope your break is going well, although it sounds as if you’re keeping very busy! 🙂

      1. I am back in harness Olga.. but took the time over Christmas to schedule ahead giving me time to write more and read and review more books. And if the weather bucks up a bit I will be getting out for walks.. hugsx

        1. Here the weather is nice but quite chilly, especially for here. Take care! ♥

  6. This book sounds extraordinary, Olga. You had me at historical.

    1. I think you’d enjoy this one as well, Robbie. The language is exquisite, and I know how fond you are of poetry. Any book by Banville is well-worth a read, from my limited experience, but this one has an interesting plot for those of us fond of the classic mystery genre. Take care.

  7. Such a great review, Olga – it sounds amazing. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. It is! Have a great 2021!
