Yes, I’ve ruined my posting schedule and broken all my promises. I, uh, don’t have a very good excuse, beyond the fact that I was out of tea. Anyway, onto our review.

The third book in the Hilary Tamar series by Sarah Caudwell is called The Sirens Sang of Murder. It’s set mostly in the Channel Islands – more specifically, Sark. It features murders in relation to the Daffodil Settlement.

I’ll be completely honest with you, I read this book about a week ago, and now have little memory of it – that has nothing to do with the writing, it’s just that quite a bit has happened since then. I do recall that it was amusing, as her writing generally is, and that it was well worth the read.

I’ve finished the last book in the series, so my next review will be on that, hopefully tomorrow.¬†

P.S., the title of this post comes from the closing lines of the book.
