I enjoyed Radio Girls: see brief comment below.
I read this book when it was first published and enjoyed it very much. This is an historical novel that is set soon after WW I. It takes place (obviously) before there was TV and when radio was a great source of news and entertainment and when the BBC was new. There is a mix of historical and fictional personages in the novel. John Reith and Hilda Matheson who played prominent roles at the station are featured. The story moves along nicely with some suspense (having to do with a conspiracy) and this is an all around good read.
A blurb: “A bright, appealing novel about the early days of the BBC and the women behind its brilliant programming….[The] depiction of female friendship and support is one of the great strengths of Stratford’s novel, which so capably describes its characters’ thirst for knowledge, for information of all kinds. An intoxicating look inside a world of innovative new media.”—Kirkus Reviews
Having read everything by Tana French, I will say that The Likeness was my favorite. I recommend it highly for those who like mysteries/procedurals.
