Picked this because of the TV series and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great sense of place, quirky characters and I didn't guess the end.

Very dull and overdetailed, I feel as if I've been reading the same bit over and over and not made progress. Expected better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious Storytelling, 31 July 2012
This review is from: Tigers in Red Weather (Hardcover)
From its sultry evocative cover to it's gripping plot and characterisation - this is THE book for a late summer read. A real 'do not disturb me' novel set in Martha's Vineyard, I can't recomment it highly enough - you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Food for Thought, 10 Nov 2009
This review is from: Policing Controversy (Hardcover)
I was uncertain as to whether or not to buy this book. I'm not that keen on 'memoir' nor did I want to be lectured at by a member of the establishment.It turned out to be an engrossing read, giving a clear and unambiguous insight into our modern police servce. Ian Blair tells his story with an engaging and factual style, pulling very few punches and being both self critical at times and of course equally critical of those around him. If you want to know how modern day policing works, then this is a must read.
