Picture on screen indicated a much bigger dictionary. Some definitions weren't available for completion of my crossword
The print inside was also too small for my eyesight

Excellent book. Steve Robinson paints a picture for readers so that they can imagine you are following the sleuth to the end.

Can't wait for his next, which I understand is in the pipeline.

sorry, didn't like it at all. There was nothing in it that I didn't already know. Everything I need is on the Ancestry site

3.0 out of 5 stars review of hiding the past, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought it bit labored at times and got more involved towards the denouement. I kept comparing it to Steve Robinsons books, which, as I am researching my family tree, I found excellent. He tells me he has a new one coming out this year. Will look fwd to that.

But overall a good read

5.0 out of 5 stars a Street Cat named Bob, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Marvellous story of James' struggle to lick the drugs habit, with the help of lovely Bob. Bob certainly pulled the punters in for him.
Saw them both on the BBC breakfast show the other morning, it was nice to see them both in the flesh.
I understand that there is a film in the pipeline as well, so things are really taking off for both of them.
