intriguing English police procedural 27 July 2005
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In Dimmock, England, Brodie Farrell, who runs the business Looking for Something? explains to her friend nerdy Daniel Hood what demon rock is. Her current client, demon rock star Jared Fry, lead singer of the Souls for Satan, is proving impossible to satisfy as even realtors failed to come up with the right home for him, but for 2.5 million pounds she will find Dracula a blood bank. Thankfully Jared's manager Eric Chandos is working with Brodie although they must adhere to the rock star's impossible mega list.

They find the perfect place, a rundown former inn changed into flats, The Diligence although Jared whines that he needs a pool. A builder begins digging up the ground only to find a Jane Doe who has been buried for several years. The locals assume that the corpse is either runaway Sasha Wade or Michelle Rollins who allegedly left town with a truck driver. Brodie's lover, Detective Superintendent Jack Deacon investigates while she goes undercover with Eric.

This is an intriguing English police procedural in which the interaction of the cast to include the almost decade old deceased is more interesting than the investigation. The story line follows Brodie who is attracted to Eric though she is seeing Jack while her best friend Daniel wants to keep her safe though she probably could take him. Throw in eccentric suspects on top of zany outsiders and the audience will have a fun time while pondering who at the climax will end up in bed with Brodie rather than wondering who the killer is.

Old secrets 15 Jan 2006
By Beverley Strong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Brodie Farrell runs a search business named "Looking for Somthing?" in which she guarantees to find whatever you're looking for. In this case, she has been commissioned by Eric Chandos, the manager of demon rocker, Jason Fry, to find him a large country house with a myriad of extras. Amazingly, she finds him exactly the house specified..an old country Inn named "The Diligence".Jason throws a tantrum when he first views the place, after buying it sight unseen, and swears that he had insisted on having a swimming pool. When excavations for the pool are underway, the skeleton of a young woman is uncovered, with police tests showing that she had died or was killed, 10 years previously. Only two young women had gone missing in the neighbourhood at that time, teenaged musician Sasha Wade and the wife of a local, Michelle Rollins. Rollins had always claimed that his wife had run off with an Italian workman and Sasha's parents knew that their daughter had taken only overnight things, showing that she meant to return. Things get strained when Brodie and Eric meet in her office and, in a moment of madness, have a passionate sexual encounter which can only be attributed, on her part, to pheromones gone mad. This explanation doesn't sit too well with Brodie's boyfriend, Detective Superintendent, Jack Deacon who is investigating the case and is not being helped much by Jason Fry who is permanently stoned on heroin. It's a good, exciting read which will appeal to lovers of mystery stories.
Using your novel soap box moral views 20 Dec 2013

Up to this point, I liked the Bannister series. While not the most intriguing, they kept my interest. That was up to the point where Bannister uses her book to announce her atheism to the world. It was stunningly inappropriate. The endings were predictable
Music, Mystery and Murder, Brrr 14 July 2013
By Tiffany Ann Ford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Brodie Farrell runs her business "Looking for Something" in Dimmock, England and is adept at finding things for people, for a commission of course. So when Eric Chandos, the beguiling manager of demon rocker Jared Fry, asks her to find that special home for Fry, with certain special requirements, Brodie accepts and finds for him an old inn called the Diligence. The local teens are wild about having Fry, however needless to say the oldsters in town might just have a different opinion about having such a man in their midsts. The place is perfect for Chandos and Brodie is already counting her hefty commission when Fry mentions that there is one more thing he needs, a swimming pool.

No problem, just dig one up, well put one it, but as they're putting it in they do dig up a body and now all of a sudden Brodie's commission is in jeopardy. And, of course, Brodie is going to have to do some amateur sleuthing to try and find out who the dead girl is, or was. And guess what, it appears she may be connected to Fry and Chandos. And to complicated matters Chandos is interested in Brodie who has conflicting feelings about that as she has a sort of boyfriend/lover in Detective Superintendent Jack Deacon, who just happens to be the copper investigating the case.

Well if that doesn't sound intriguing than you don't like mysteries. Brodie is a delightful character with real feelings. The plot is well written and captivating and I have to admit that I was hanging on every word as I read along. You will be too.
