So there I was, doing some catchup reading of Bookshelves of Doom, when I read, much to my horror, of the death of Ariana Franklin.  In January!  I don't know how I missed this, but it's very sad.  Ariana Franklin's real name was Diana Norman, and she wrote a series that I absolutely loved: The Mistress of the Art of Death.  I reviewed A Murderous Procession last year.  They're wonderfully written, rich books, full of beautiful language and incredible historical detail.  And I could never figure out who did it, no matter how hard I tried.  She always got me!  She's left us with some truly wonderful books.  I highly recommend them.
