Martyr - Rory Clements

Well, I'm a month behind but I've finally started July's More Historical Than Fiction read.


It's not bad, but I'm not really getting sucked in. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something just isn't quite working for me. There was also some info dumping of past history that didn't seem entirely necessary to the story. John Shakespeare mentions a past case in such a way as to make it feel like this wasn't the first book published...but somehow it feels like filler.


Maybe it'll pick up?
