Some great (aka evilly tempting) book reviews here, Karen! And I can highly recommend The Sacrificial Man by Ruth Dudgall (esp to those who enjoyed Elizabeth Haynes, Cath Staincliffe's Witness or Diane Janes' most recent novels). I'm also glad to see that Paulus H has a new book coming out, it's been a while since his interesting (translated) debut.

It has the same main characters as well (PH).
