The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike Book 1)
The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike Book 1)

1.0 out of 5 stars More a general interest book than a detective story, 17 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite all the hype, this book didn't live up to expectations I'm sorry to say. It was a struggle to read it to the end and it included a lot of detail that did not add much to the story. There was more story about the living habits of detective than about either the crime or the victim. It was more of a slice of life book than a detective story.


Let Me Tell You About Wine
Let Me Tell You About Wine
by Oz Clarke
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to wine - an easy recommendation, 17 Oct 2014
Very readable introduction to wine tasting, drinking and indeed the wine world. This is a common sense and very readable guide to all of those bottles on the supermarket shelf. If you're not sure about the differences in wines, buy this book!

Iceberg
Iceberg
by Clive Cussler
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced adventure, 17 Oct 2014
This review is from: Iceberg (Paperback)
Cussler has a knack of writing book in a way that keeps you reading. The plot in this book begins being fantastic and, as the book progresses, that doesn't change! The chase toward the end becomes an almost impossible task for our hero and - although you know it will all work out in the end - you wonder how Cussler will get there. The book is well written and, give it was published in the eighty's, the plot still works.


Night Probe!
Night Probe!
by Clive Cussler
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.74

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost two mysteries in one, 27 Jun 2014
This review is from: Night Probe! (Paperback)
Classic Cussler – a fast moving plot that keeps you turning the pages. A clever structure to the story keeps you guessing until the end.


A Sentimental Traitor (Harry Jones)
A Sentimental Traitor (Harry Jones)
by Michael Dobbs
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

5.0 out of 5 stars A contemporary political thriller set in an EU that you might have come to expect, 23 Jun 2014
Bizarre, outrageous and downright illegal acts by foreign powers on UK soil has provided the backdrop to Dobbs’ latest book. Given that an ex-Soviet agent actually has been poisoned by radiation, it is not too far a step to believe that the same agents of darkness might ‘take out’ a passenger plane using a ship launched missile. An MP then asking an innocent question results in him becoming the latest target for an out of control EU agency hell-bent on protecting the future it believes in. This is a book about official manipulation and almost the destruction of an individual for no greater purpose than that 'they' can. A fast moving and enjoyable read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Plot was weak, 4 Sep 2013
I have read other books in the "Private" series and this one followed a similar format. Short chapters and fast moving. However, the plot didn't appeal to me - it lacked something and I found myself just wanting to finish the book in the hope that it would get better.


Beneath the Bleeding
Beneath the Bleeding
by Val McDermid
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, engaging and a great read, 13 July 2013
This review is from: Beneath the Bleeding (Paperback)
This was the first Val McDermid book that I have read. It was an enjoyable book with each chapter demanding that the next is read. The plot is well formed and in fact there are two main plots. The murderers method, being poison, is particularly nasty and one cannot help feeling that makes the matter worse.

I will certainly be reading more of Val McDermid's work.


In Memory of Greed
In Memory of Greed
Price: £1.93

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging story tracking the depths of the gutter to their earned conclusion!, 26 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In Memory of Greed is an action adventure, a detective, and a corruption in high places story. In each of these rolls it achieves its purpose. The story is fast moving; it begins in the United States and ends half a world away in Africa. The characters are well developed but retain some surprise throughout the story.

The plot is complicated, though not difficult to follow being essentially about individuals with an insatiable greed and prepared to go to any length in pursuit of their aim - ie even more money.

The book is well written and kept my interest throughout. I'd certainly read another title by this author. Good work.


Private: (Private 1)
Private: (Private 1)
by James Patterson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Written to be a film, 7 Aug 2012
This review is from: Private: (Private 1) (Paperback)
This book is a very fast read - the chapters are short, a couple of pages at most, and the print is large. There is little detail about the characters. I believe that the author has written it to be made into a film rather than 'just' a book. Having said that, it is an entertaining and untaxing reading.
