*****Delores Claiborne - Forced by overwhelming evidence to confess her life of crime, Dolores Claiborne, a foul-tempered New Englander, describes how her disintegrating marriage years before caused her heart to turn murderous.
"A book with a one-word title": Eldorado (1913)- Baroness Emmuska Orczy. By date the fourth, chronologically the eighth in The Scarlet Pimpernel series (not including prequels). Another exciting adventure involving my favourite hero, in which his uncommon pluck and ingenuity is highlighted by others' supreme idiocy. When I say "others'" there's a specific character I have in mind here; I won't say which. You'll find out.
