The Adventures of Sally by P G Woodhouse

Picked on a whim without ever having read Woodhouse at all. This book was a long read but this was absolutely lovely.The story was set in 1920s America and England. The characters were well developed, I especially loved the hapless Lancelot ‘Ginger’ Kemp. Woodhouse excelled at giving insight (for me at least) into the mind of the upperclass Englishman via the loathful Bruce Carmyle. My only gripe is the seemingly hurried way in which he was dispatched. One would have thought that after having chased Sally all the way to America (again) that he would have at least tried harder to understand what happened.

It makes me want to read more Woodhouse stuff and I shall certainly do so.

Highly rated although the ending seemed rushed

Rated 7

The Camel Club by David Baldacci

This is the first in the Camel Club series of books set in Washington DC. It uncovers a plot within the intelligence community to kidnap POTUS. A highly entaertaining reda that never loses pace. The characters are great and utterly believeable. I love Milton with his OCD.

Highly recommended read in the spy thriller genre. Will definitely be on the lookout for more Baldacci books.
