The Murder Bag

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Murder Bag (Kindle Edition)
The plot is a little thin and the story is padded out with the not altogether successful ploy of giving the main character a family background. DC Wolfe is not quite believable, even within the genre of crime writing. I'm not sure if I missed some facts about his background, but it does not seem likely that a police constable could afford to live in central London, pay for help with his child and run his car!

Having heard the author interviewed at the Hay Festival I can see where his character's attachment to his dog and to boxing come from and although I found this book somewhat tedious I hope his next book will be better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much violence!, 14 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a genealogist I found the story interesting, but felt that the level of violence was somewhat excessive and unnecessary. I think it would not be an easy read for those without some knowledge of genealogy.

I thoroughly enjoyed this latest book in the Aelf Fen Mystery Series. The storyline was strong and the characters were well drawn and seem to have developed further in this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book, my second Jim Stringer read, rather slow, with a lot of rather unbelievable characters in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Masaryk Station (Kindle Edition)
I have enjoyed reading all the books in this series, and this was no different. It has very good characterisation and story lines and gives a good insight into the immediate post war period in Europe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best of this series, 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not sure if long series are a good thing. However, Fidelma was somewhat less irritating in this book, but for fans of the series still worth having.

A good read as long as you like books with flashbacks to the past to explain the storyline. I enjoyed it and felt the character portrayal was very good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Trying something different, 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A reasonable story, but I found the language difficult to follow at times and the outcomes forced bordering on farcical.
