Whose Body? (Illustrated)
Whose Body? (Illustrated)

5.0 out of 5 stars The First Lord Peter Wimsey Murder Mystery., 19 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
ThIs is the mystery novel that first introduces Lord Peter Wimsey and his man servant Bunter. It is not the best of Dorothy Sayers' books but does lay the foundations for the following stories. No Harriet Vane yet but some lovely vignettes of his family and social class.
A naked body is found in a bath belonging to a man who worked for Wimsey's mother who encourages Peter to involve himself in the strange affair.
As the story involves a Jewish financier some claim to find anti-Semite material in this book but I read it as other characters rather than Wimsey himself (or indeed the author) reflecting some unfortunate and ignorant opinions casually voiced in those times.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull story badly written., 1 Mar. 2016
This review is from: Mr Holmes [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
A dull invented version of Sherlock Holmes in his dotage.Not worth buying unless on a sizeable discount. A waste of the acting talents of Linney and McKelkan.The writers were not up to the task and it was very badly directed.

17 Carnations: The Windsors, The Nazis and The Cover-Up
Price: £3.49

1.0 out of 5 stars Cold Soup Dished Up as Hot Curry., 16 Feb. 2016
Terrible book dishing up old news as fresh revelation.Morton usually writes interesting books although they always come over as gossip rather that researched history. This time he is just pushing gossip and 'might-have-been' and pretendeding that there has been a cover-up by the establishment.If there was it was the worst kept secret ever.Anyone who has taken an interest in the Windsors has swallowed large portions of these theories from a multitude of books including several fictional thrillers.
This is just about readable if you have managed to pass through life without knowing anything about this period in our history but otherwise it's best placed in the box named 'Book Donations Welcome'

This review is from: Black Plumes (Kindle Edition)
Excellent mystery for once not featuring her wonderful sleuth Albert Campion
Margery Allingham was an outstanding writer in her time who was as good as Agatha Christie or Dorothy L Sayers (and considerably less snobbish than Sayers) and in my opinion better than Ngaio Marsh

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful nonsense worth no star., 28 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dreadful plot,dire characterisation. In thus story a band of Loyalist Americans have involved themselves in the financial affairs of the United States of America since independence with the cunning plan of bringing their country to its knees and making Great Britain the new 'World Power'.Down the years they have stayed on in America with their children down the long ages continuing their dastardly plot. Thus involves supporting the South and helping the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbour.
Our two heroes smash ancient artefacts and break into national historical buildings with happy abandon all in pursuit of these fifth column Brit loving traitors who can be spotted easily as they all went to Eton!
This book makes Dan Brown almost look a good writer. Avoid it.

Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first three books., 21 Aug. 2015
This is a series that needs a serious upgrade as books four in particular and this - number five are nowhere near as good as the first three. Even so it is well worth reading and has some very funny lines in it. The long running Lesley and the Faceless Man saga is still rumbling along nicely and like most fans I would like more on the Second World War story that is mentioned in every book.


Spandau Phoenix
Spandau Phoenix
Price: £3.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Perfidious Albion and all that., 14 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Spandau Phoenix (Kindle Edition)
Terrible conspiracy novel about Rudolf Hess and a dodgy theory on body doubles and wicked secret agents.All vety rough and tumble and implausible actions.
The author seems to want to besmirch the British nation and imply that all the leaders and aristocracy were lovers of the Nazi regime and eager to make peace.
The heroes are Americans,some Germans and a Mossad agent. The British are murderous and cold blooded as well as being anti Semites. In fact almost all of the rest of the cast seem to be anti Jewish.
The writers historical accuracy is not very good. He has Spitfires flying over Germany in 1940.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nasty little SNP excuse., 12 Aug. 2015
If the only excuse the Scotnats can come up with for their crushing defeat is that the BBC was a propaganda organ of the NO vote then it's back to the drawing board Salmond.
This spiteful little book is as biased as it claims the Beeb was and is best treated with caution and scepticism. The true fact is that the referendum was lost because most of the Scottish people are not blue wode painted Mel Gibson idiots or bigoted little scotlanders and understand that the UK is a 'good thing.
I suspect that the SNP high tide is going to ebb in the next few months or years and settle back to being a small nasty nationalist party. Some of us older citizens remember it's closeness to the Nazi Party before the Second World War and have never trusted it since.
