All right. This particular post contains spoilers for Cassandra Chen's 'The Young Widow'. It is a mystery set in modern times, British, which I have seen reviews of mentioning its similarities to Dorothy Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey stories. I have now read it because my mom had a copy and I fail to see any resmegblance whatsoever excapt for the fact there is an upper class man who likes to hang around with detectives and help solve mysteries. It lacks any of the charm or wit or intelligence of Sayers. I don't like any of the characters in it. I spent the entire last half of the novel going "Oh my God Detective Gibbons, you idiot," because he started a relationship with the prime suspect in the case. And it was a bog-standard procedural mystery in which, you know, the whole point was figuring out, to piece together where each person was at what time on the day that the murder happened. I do not think I shall bother reading the second.
Leading on from that, on my drive home which I'm still on, hence the phone post instead of a text post or anything like that, I was listening to my skeptic podcasts and I'm wondering if there are any detective novels starring skeptics. Not skeptics like the proper sketicas all detectives ought to be, but like in the modern skeptical movement. You see a little bit of it in the TV show "The Mentalist". House is a bit of a skeptic, that kind of thing. If anyone knows, let me know. Thanks.”
