While not as abysmally awful as some reviews would suggest (some reviewers seem to forget that Agatha Christie had her paycheck-earning clunkers as well as her brilliant classics), this attempt by Sophie Hannah to resurrect the Queen of Crime's most ...more
Fly by Night by Frances Hardinge
"This book took me an inordinately long time to finish, which is really no fault of the books—it’s a well-written alternate history/fantasy, with not the slightest element of the fantastic except for the fact that it is set in something that resemb..." Read more of this review »

Fly by Night by Frances Hardinge
