While may people have been busy with the Pre-Christmas rush …
I have been busy getting my new book
“New House … New Neighbours”
ready for publication but I have done some reading.
Dispatches by Michael Herr
Five full stars
Acutely observed and written with panache.
Naked Alliances: A Richard Noggin Novel (The Naked Eye Private Investigator Series Book 1) by S K Nicholls
The body count is rather high, and nobody gets arrested as the action roars along … I’ll not say too much as it would spoil the plot!
I enjoyed reading this and will go for any new titles in the series.
The Marlboro Man: A Moira McElvaney Mystery by Derek Fee
Life is good but …. she misses life on DCI Wilson’s murder squad.
Then a chance to investigate a disappearance of a rather dull accountant is presented by the rich, handsome, interesting best friend of Brendan …
Just lacking a little of the ‘bite’ and ‘grittiness’ of the Wilson books, things fall into place rather easily or money, and Frank Shae has lots of it, gets results. Characterisation is a little shallow, by the end of the book I didn’t feel I knew the characters. That said the plot was strong and kept the pages turning!
