The four books I read were:
On Beulah Height: Reginald Hill *
I think I enjoyed my reading in May because my book choices were uniformly excellent. Four brilliant books that frankly I could not separate because in their different styles they were equally good reads. Four exceptional books by four superb award winning authors, so FOUR picks of the month for May.
* My review of On Beulah Height and an appreciation of a great and very funny crime writer will appear at Celebrating Reginald Hill on 6 June.
