5.0 out of 5 stars beautifully rendered, humorous and refreshingly original, 22 Dec. 2015
The Driftwood Giraffe is an extraordinary novel, beautifully rendered, humorous and refreshingly original. I would love to see this in book form as I have so many friends who would just love it, and it would make a terrific gift, especially at this time of year. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A disturbing book to those not familiar with the Orange Order., 22 Nov. 2011
This is a disturbing book, but only to those unfamiliar with the sectarian gangsters known as the Orange Order.

I would totally agree with Professor Tonge that his findings are indeed disturbing. But as most nationalist will tell you, they are not surprised at the sectarian mind-set of this totally sectarian and murderous organisation. Isn't it time the Orange dis-Order was banned and their `leaders' jailed for whipping up sectarianism, just like the BNP's support of racism and Nazism? Where are all these so-called liberal-minder people when it comes to nationalists in the North of Ireland? Their silence and hypocrisy is deafening. Read this book and be puzzled as to how a sectarian organisation like this has been permitted and encouraged by the British Government to whip up sectarian hatred. No other country would allow it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 17 Oct. 2011
I had never heard of this show until I listen to crime writer, Sam Millar praising the hell out of it on the radio saying he based his Karl Kane PI on Frank Marker. The show is a delight. Gritty and realistic. Hard to believe it was made in the sixties! A true gem of sparse and to-the-point scenes. Terrific writing. The acting is outstanding, and frighteningly real. Makes modern-day shows look embarrassingly like cardboard and irrelevant. A classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Class Noir, 11 Mar. 2011
This review is from: BURN, BABY, BURN (Kindle Edition)
"Brilliant. Hard as nails noir. Barton should be on everyone's must-read list." Those aren't my words, but the words of bestselling crime noir writer, Sam Millar. He was right. This is a terrific read which never stops it bullet-like pace to the very last page. Let the burn burn you. Go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 2 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Thorn in My Side (Hardcover)
This is an excellent read. I have to admit this is my first Quigley book, and only bought it after hearing bestselling crime writer Sam Millar recommending it on the radio. Very gritty. Very well controlled and tight writing. It has whet my appetite for some more of her books.
