Books read over Christmas

Christmas has come and Christmas has gone. and I need to apologise. It has been a couple of weeks since I last updated the list of books and stories read. I blame Christmas shopping, events and travel for getting in the way. So what was the reading experience over Christmas really like.

Christmas Crackers

Anders Zorn: UnveiledOlaf Danielson

A rather boring doctor with a dull marriage suddenly finds that he has been appointed head of a secret organisation! A very rich organisation. An organisation that has enemies prepared to kill. Enemies who can only be identified by a tattoo. So where to go to be safe … a naturist resort? Suspend belief and it is a fun story!

Mirror Earth Revisited – P.Z. Walker

The usual high quality naturist Sci-fi from the keyboard of a master of the genre. Read it!

Pepper Creek Murder: A Mark Steele Mystery (Mark Steele Mysteries Book 2) – Tom Saine

Set in the 1950’s a detective and his girlfriend are invited to his daughters resort for a relaxing weekend. Two surprises; it’s a naturist resort and a murder stops the relaxation.  A good read.

 

Nothing but Memories: A DCI Wilson Investigation – Derek Fee

Shadow Sins: A DCI Wilson Investigation – Derek Fee

Dark Circles: A DCI Wilson Investigation – Derek Fee

Derek Fee has created an Irish version of Rebus and has him operating in the post-Good Friday environment of Belfast. A place charged with political concerns  and sectarian hangovers. Readers of police fiction should enjoy these stories!

Poor Pudding

  • An Inspector Horace Mystery – Her Master’s Voice – P D Jones (author) it’s junk!
  • An Inspector Horace Mystery – The Girl Next Door – P D Jones (author) as above

Didn’t Catch Fire

The Saga of the StardusterTW Scott

An OK Sci-fi romance story with a bit of hairy nudity thrown in.

The Burning Page (The Invisible Library series Book 3)Genevieve Cogman                    I was looking forward to reading this book but it disappointed, something has got lost as the tale has gone on.  Maybe it is the originality of the concept. I’ll still read book 4 when it arrives!
