Murther and Walking Spirits

by Robertson Davies.

Quickie recap: When Connor Gilmartin is murdered, it isn't just his life that flashes before his eyes, but the lives of all the ancestors that made him into the man he is today.

Quickie review: It ended up not being what I expected, but that's not a criticism in the least. Some authors lose their edge as they get older, but this book is as strong as ever. Bravo.

Quickie recommendation: Robertson Davies, one of my favourite authors, is always a pleasure, and though this book has a different tone than I'm used to from him, I found it masterful.
