It's quite a long time since I read a book in a single day. Yesterday I worked my way through Edward Wilson's superb, The Envoy, a Cold War spy story set in 1950s Britain that skillfully blends real world events and people with a fictional tale. It's complex, multi-layered, atmospheric, full of historical and political insight, and reveals deep insight into human relations. Full review in due course. I also hope to post reviews of David Downey's excellent, Silesian Station, and Arnaldur Indridason's, Black Skies, this week.
