|Books I have read because of Dorothy Dunnett?
The Falco mysteries by Lindsey Davis.
A few years ago I read in an interview with Dorothy that she liked these mysteries for light reading in her spare time because they are so well-researched.
I have been hooked on them ever since and have learned so much about Vespasian Rome. The first title in the series is Silver Pigs.
I suppose several others have suggested this series. We all have read so many things because of her; I found at least part of Richard Chancellor's diary from his first trip to Russia. But the one I read most recently was Among Friends by Alistair Dunnett, and I never would have read it but for knowing he was Dorothy's husband. And I learned so much about him and envy those who knew him.
