Book of the Week: Scandal in Babylon

I haven’t read much straight-up mystery novels lately, but I was always a fan of Christie and Sayers. I’ve just started Barbara Hambly’s Scandal in Babylon, which takes the characters from Bride of the Rat God, changes all their names*, presumably shakes all the supernatural pulp off of them, and have them deal with conventional murders and mysteries.

…I think I’m okay with this. At least it’s been a good book so far.

*Except for the dogs. The dogs’ names are inviolate. I’m also okay with this.
