    This review is a long time coming, because this book was a long time reading!

    This is a biography of Nancy Mitford, the eldest of the six notorious Mitford sisters. As an American, I didnít know anything about them, and as somebody with an interest in the inter-war years, I was fascinated to learn. I started by brushing up on their respective Wikipedia pages, just to give myself a grounding, then I dove in, eager to learn more. That eagerness did not last.

    This is a collection of ten short stories by CJ Box, an international best-seller, I learn from the rear cover. Iíve never read him before, nor do I know much about thrillers apart from Dan Brown. Still, I thought a short story a day would suffice. Then I read the whole thing in two sittings.
