Fiction: 'Vienna Blood' by Frank Tallis. I enjoyed 'Mortal Mischief' by the same author. He describes a pairing of a Psychiatrist and Police Inspector in the early 1900s.

Nial Fergerson's biography of Henry Kissenger (part 1)

Superbly well written, it is probably going to be his masterpiece if part 2 is just as good when it comes out.

I am safely ensconced in my vintage copy of Jules Verne's "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea". Wonderful.

Hastings, Max
'Catastrophe: Europe goes to war'.
A brilliant, opinionated* and readable account of how incompetent generalship led to the entrenched stalemate of WW1.


*eg Sir John French was a poltroon.

H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald. Though I'm not get consistent enjoyment from it, it is well written. For me it's a one-time read.

If you like it, you'll be hooked for life! I have read all of his Bernie Gunther novels and for me, only one, has fallen short of his otherwise excellent standard.

I'm currently into William Boyd and having just finished his latest, I have just started Brazzaville Beach, which I am looking forward to.
