Should I delete my Allingham (Campion) and Morson (Falconer) entries?

ETA: Then again, we have 2 Inspector Morse books as well ...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Didn't see you'd added Campion and Falconer books; probably ones I haven't read, so they don't jump out at me.

and Death of a Ghost (one of the first Campions chiefly set in London)

Oh, that was one of my absolute favorites last year and I recommended it to EVERYONE. (Even when someone finally said, "Yeah, I know, you've told me about it at least twice now."


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It was a very good, very atmospheric, read.
