4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Espionage Thriller set during the First World War, 17 May 2015
This review is from: Star of Istanbul, The (Paperback)
Having not read the first of the Christopher Marlow Cobb thrillers, I wasn't sure what to expect from this spy story, but, though mention was made of his earlier adventure, I think that this is a book that can be read on its own, and I didn't feel that I'd missed too much of his back story. Having now enjoyed this, I may go back and read The Hot Country at some time.

Under his cover as a famous War Correspondent 'Kit' Cobb has been asked to follow a suspected agent of the German Secret Service on the ill-fated ship The Lusitania but becomes distracted by a beautiful actress. He is shocked to discover that she is not what she seems to be.....who's side is she on?

Cobb is an interesting character, he misses nothing, he's smart about reading people, being a pretty good reporter, but is not so smart about women, a fact he readily admits as he becomes smitten with the enigmatic Selene Bourgani.

The writing is very detailed, which I really enjoyed reading, it moves along at a brisk pace, it's never boring, involving intriguing characters who are well-developed, clever twists, full of danger, this is a very good exciting espionage thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging but please persevere, 17 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ok, so this little device is not the easiest to use.
The instructions are a none event, and you will not get far with these alone.
Search the net and try YouTube.
This Digital Recorder is a brand leader so you will find loads of good information with a little patience.

Persevere and play with this device and you will find the benefits.
It takes 2 AAA batteries, which using a decent brand should last a fair while.

As you get familiar with this you will find lots of use for it.

Stay with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hello Kitty, 17 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely gift for any young girl.
Our niece, who we gave it to, loves it.
It is very bright and girly. It actually looks like a toy instead of an appliance.
It works well. It is built well and very safe to use.
Bath time is a joy to her now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Ink Cartridges, 15 May 2015
These ink cartridges are good quality.
When you put them in the printer it will tell you that they are not epson original cartridges.
Do not let this discourage you from using these cartridges.
They work just as good. I use these all the time.
Why pay more for a different brand.

Use these with confidence.

This is a good product for anyone who likes order in their working /pleasure life.

Here is a product which is robustly made and will do the job of recording anything for anyone.

Rexel is a brand leader in this sort of filing/indexing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Drill, 10 May 2015
My husband tells me this is a decent drill.

He has used it around the house and in the garage.
It has good torque and the hammer action is a must.

He has used it to drill most surfaces wood, masonry etc, and it has done the job on all.

It is lightweight so there is no undue duress with arm aches.

Overall a very good drill for the diyer from a decent brand, at a fair price.

Job Done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Polish, 9 May 2015
This is very good car polish.

I use it regularly and it gives me a good shiny finish.
I apply the polish with some cheesecloth and it is superb.
It is not the cheapest but so far I have found it the best.
I find the easiest way to apply it is to do one panel at a time.

I like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a Student, 9 May 2015
I bought this crock pot for my son who is away at uni.

I have used one myself so I know the value of this and I knew my son would like it as he likes his food.

He uses this nearly everyday and loves it. He cooks food for himself and his flatmates, as the size of the pot is enough for five, or three hungry guys,so at least I know they are eating well!!!!!!

A bonus for him is the programmable timer and the easy cleaning. Both are good features.

This is a really useful addition to any kitchen and will be well used.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sporty and Cool, 9 May 2015
These headphones are not only cool and sporty looking, they are also very good. Very good for listening to music, which is what all headphones should be.

They are excellent for any sporty persons, as they deliver quality crisp bluetooth sound. Be that on a bike, in the gym or out jogging.

The earpieces tend to protrude out of the ear a little, which is an appearance problem.
Also the controls take some finding and using. However after using these headphones for a few days everything is now second nature and ok.

As I said before the sound is the be all and end all for headphones and these do not disappoint.

For cool, clear sounding headphones for any sporty person then look no further.
