More detective-ing by Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott, this time in and around Clerkenwell with occasional trips to Cornwall and elsewhere.

References to Robin using her “iPod” and “Oyster card” threw me for quite some time, until I twigged that it’s set in 2014. Even so, those still don’t sound right to me.

Also the paperback clocks in at over 1000 pages. Not easy wrangling a book that big in bed. So I’m glad I got to spend Spring Bank Holiday Monday reading it in the lounge. Thankfully it is a real page turner.

I’ve been slogging my way through this for a good few weeks now. Podcasts and more recently Jessie Burton’s The Confession on audiobook took precedence over bedtime reading.

And today I picked up a bunch of new books from the library all of which I actually want to read rather than feel I ought to. So I’m putting Hot Milk to one side, probably never to return.
