Sweazy's new novel is A Thousand Falling Crows.
Recently I asked the author about what he was reading. His reply:
I’m currently reading A Fine Summer’s Day by Charles Todd. This is an Inspector Ian Rutledge novel, and a prequel to a successful series of mystery novels that I have to admit to not having read. I felt that this new prequel was the best place to start. Charles Todd is actually Charles and Caroline Todd, an American mother-and-son writing team, and I was curious to see if I would be able to tell if the novel had been written by co-authors. Plain and simple, I can’t tell at all. The writing is seamless, and the storytelling top notch.Visit Larry D. Sweazy's website and blog.
Quintessentially British, Inspector Rutledge endeavors for Scotland Yard in a thorough and dogged way at the dawn of World War I in this novel. The series, however, takes place after the end of World War II, so there is a lot of experience to be gained and water under bridge between this novel and the series books that come after it. Which, after reading this novel, I will promptly put on my TBR (to be read) pile. As a side note, a friend of mine, who was born and raised in London, said this book was enjoyable and she was surprised to learn that it had been written by a pair of Americans. That in itself was enough of an endorsement for me.
