There’s a new review by thriller writer Helen Black of A Razor Wrapped in Silk up on the blogsite Strictly Writing. She admits she approached the book with “a degree of trepidation”, because her dad, a hard-drinking Yorkshire miner, was a massive fan of Russian literature, and in particular Crime and Punishment, re-reading it every year. If you didn’t know already, my series of historical crime novels – of which Razor is the latest – features Porfiry Petrovich, the investigating magistrate from Dostoevsky’s great novel.
I’ll leave you to find out what Helen made of my book. I’ll just say that her dad sounds like he was a great bloke.
