I'm not much for crime novels, and I'd never read a British crime novel before this one. I must say, however, that Birth Marks really held my interest. I am constantly amazed by the craft of writing. Keeping together all of those details, providing foreshadowing that the reader will only discover later, and tying it all up into a neat conclusion (most of the time) seems an altogether arduous and incredible feat of magic to me. This novel really provides all of that. Well done, Sarah Dunant. I'd like to read others, I think.
