The Silver Pigs: (Falco 1)
The Silver Pigs: (Falco 1)
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Historical detective story, 8 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this Roman whodunnit featuring private eye Marcus Didius Falco. Owing a lot to Philip Marlowe, Falco is an endearing rather downtrodden character who has to cope with the politics of first century Rome whilst watching his own back. Full of fascinating historical details the story twists and turns. This is the first of a series and I am already hooked so on to the next book.

This is the first book in the 'Bruno' series and it does a very good job of setting the scene in this delightful part of France. I have read many of the other book in the series and thought I ought to start at the beginning and this book did not disappoint. Each book, and this is no exception, deals with issues local to Bruno's small town and the people he serves as Chief of Police but also issues that affect French and European policing. The district of St Denis is very rural and illuminates the country way of life from their daily habits to the food they eat and their petty squabbles. In this story the murder involves old grievances from the complicated affiliations during World War 2 as well as modern day drug trafficking. This is a pleasant and interesting read and makes you want to take your next summer holiday in the Perigord and hope to see Bruno taking his morning coffee in his usual cafe.

A very strange shape with flappy bits at the side. Did not fit me at all. Odd because another Playtex bra bought at the same time in a different style but same size fitted perfectly. One star for nice fabric.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly good tablet., 29 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice tablet with many features. I bought it as I needed another Kindle as my husband has pinched mine. I don't really need the other features so have not used them but the book reader is easy to use once you have set it up. It took some time to work out how to enlarge the print size but overall easy to use. Heavier than I expected.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Continuing the story of Ross and Demelza in 18th century Cornwall. The ups and downs of the Poldark fortunes and their neighbours, rich and poor, is set against the background of tin and copper mining. The star of the show is Cornwall itself and the love for this part of England by the author shines through.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not on top form, 7 April 2015

Not as good as the other Montalbano stories ai have read. The writing style seems different. Perhaps the author had a dip in performance or maybe a different translator.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than I remember, 26 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read all the Poldark novels years ago and watched the first TV series. Rereading them they are better than I remember. The story of mining in Cornwall is fascinating as are the personal stories of Graham's characters. But it is the richness and warmth of the prose that makes me want to head off to Poldark's Cornwall and experience for myself the sunsets and wild weather so beautifully described.

4.0 out of 5 stars an atmospheric mystery story, 14 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This story is set in a rather idealised small town in France with the main character a 'too good to be true' local policeman, Bruno. But the characters and the atmosphere of a French rural community are genuinely true to life. As someone who has experience of such a place the details of the friendships and the love of good food and wine ring true. The story is centred on the local wine makers and the efforts of big business to take over. The mystery begins with a fire connected to a GM crop experiment station suspected of being arson. Bruno investigates as the story unfolds of unexplained deaths, family feud and international wine concerns. A gentle but well-paced page turner. Thoroughly enjoyed this. I have also enjoyed other books in this series.

Have tried these lights out and they have charged up on a dull day and seem to work well. We have not yet put them up outside so cannot give a full 5 stars
