I actually might have to check those books out or get them for someone I know who would really enjoy stuff like that.
What sort of preferences in historical fiction appeal to you?

The Liss book has been a bit disappointing so far.

Rising Man is a detective/political intrigue mystery. It's an interwar book (set after WW1). That's an entire area of literature with good books like Testament of Youth, Brideshead Revisited, The Great Gatsby, The Sun also Rises.

I am hoping Rising Man gets better as we get deeper into the mystery. It's already improved over the formulaic beginning.

If you haven't read Killer Angels, that's my fave. A good book to read after that is Gone for Soldiers.

In the Garden of Beasts by Larson is set in the first couple years of the rise of the nazis. It's really good.
