WWW Wednesday


WWW Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Mizb @ Should be Reading.

What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading The Big Bow Mystery by Israel Zangwill published in 1892. It is considered to be the first locked room mystery. Arthur Constant is found dead in his room. Who killed him and how? All the doors and windows are locked so how did any one gain entry and kill him. I liked Zangwill's humour.
I am also reading The Monster in the Box by Ruth Rendell.


What did you recently finish reading?
I finished reading The Vault by Ruth Rendell.



What do you think you'll read next?

Summer Lightning by P G Wodehouse
DeKok and Murder on blood Mountain by Baantjer.
Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey

I'm so glad I followed your link from shouldbereading. I have to read The Big Bow. It has been in the back of my mind for a long time as something I "should" read, but you are the only person I've seen mention "sense of humor" and that detail now has me hooked. That Victorian sense of humor and style really appeals to me.

I have a couple of historical mysteries on my WWW Wednesday:
