The Dead Shall be Raised and The Murder of a Quack - George Bellairs

that takes care of the Introduction, which means I've endured Bellairs' (Blundell's) biography--in short, or shortest, form--a few times, and am ready for fiction by the fellow himself. to be fair, Edwards reminded me of an aspect of Bellairs' writing that I encountered and appreciated, in Death of a Busybody: yes, I would agree, Bellairs understands human psychology. not sure how much fondness he had for his humans, based on that understanding combined with his brand of humor, but as Edwards suggests and I also believe to be true, work in a bank as long as this author did, and you get to know people (maybe more than you want to).


anyway, on to the novels...two in one!
