Tales of Muffled Oars, by Magnus Mills (Quoqs Publishing, 2020)

Two friends join an ongoing discussion of England’s history: a series of pub talks ensue. Superficially similar to Mills‘s The Forensic Records Society, this is another examination of men, entropy, and understated menace. Perhaps not for newbies, but those who’ve enjoyed Mills’s work before will find this brisk novel full of familiar pleasures. Recommended.


My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
