Robert Barnard 1936-2013

I've just read over @ The Passing Tramp that mystery writer Robert Barnard passed away last Thursday at the age of 76. I just started reading his books and only have 2 under my belt but enjoyed them. I have several more on the shelf to read yet. Martin Edwards @ Do You Write Under Your Own Name? wrote a nice piece about him.

Have you read Barnard and which book was your favorite?

  1. Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. I didn't know. I've only read one book by him which was Fete Fatale and I liked it a lot. Coincidently I have one of his on my library pile at the moment, Last Post.

  2. I really liked OUT OF THE BLACKOUT -- a neat thriller about family secrets, and also POLITICAL SUICIDE, which had some fun black humor. Sort of a YES, MINISTER with murder.
