The Wolf in Winter: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 12
The Wolf in Winter: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 12
Price: £3.66

4.0 out of 5 stars Another gem from John Connolly., 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another excellent Charlie Parker thriller, from the pen of the extremely gifted storyteller, John Connolly.
There are strange things happening in the town of Prosperous and an ancient evil seems to live there 'blessing' the townspeople provided they follow the ancient customs... When Charlie Parker investigates a young womans' disappearance he gets more than he bargained for. Angel and Louis make a welcome return and more questions are answered about Charlie's dead wife and daughter...
There is also a confrontation with the Collector....A wonderful series of novels and another welcome addition to the series....Can't wait for the next one...Great stuff !! and highly recommended for anyone who has enjoyed the earlier novels in the series.


The Wanderer in Unknown Realms (Kindle Single)
The Wanderer in Unknown Realms (Kindle Single)
Price: £1.99

3.0 out of 5 stars A ( deliberately ) old fashioned type read., 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I quite enjoyed this, although the style of writing is deliberately 'old fashioned'....a bit like Dennis Wheatley or H.P. Lovecraft...
If you like either of these you'll enjoy this well enough..
I read it about 6 months ago, and to be honest I remember enjoying it at the time but it's not a story that is likely to stick in the memory, good to pass a few hours...( It's fairly short ) but not one that I would highly recommend....
In fact if you are looking at this because you are a fan of the Charlie Parker series of novels, don't....It's nothing at all like those novels ( which are excellent ), but it's worth a read.....Not great, but just ok....
Cheers,
Bob


The Cabinet of Curiosities: A Novel (Agent Pendergast series)
The Cabinet of Curiosities: A Novel (Agent Pendergast series)

4.0 out of 5 stars Agent Pendergast in his first ? outing., 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a big fan of the FBI Special Agent Pendergast series of books and this is an excellent start point.
During an excavation several bones have been found that lead Pendergast to believe a serial killer was at work in the 1880s....While investigating the same type of gruesome mutilations turn up in modern New York......Is it a copy cat killer or is there something more sinister at work....
A really good read if you like Preston and Childs work and an excellent start point to get into the series...
Enjoy,
Cheers,
Bob


Code Zero: A Joe Ledger Novel
Code Zero: A Joe Ledger Novel

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as Patient Zero but a great read !!, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent sequel to Patient Zero, although not quite as good....... Still a Very worthy follow up and an interesting story arc.
Joe Ledger has moved on after the events and losses of Patient Zero, and this time finds himself and his team confronted by those 'menaces' he thought they had destroyed in previous stories....these include Berserkers, various plagues and worst of all, Strain 12 of the original plague from Patient Zero.........In strain 12 the zombies maintain their intelligence and are faster and stronger than the 'usual' walking dead......Who is Mother Night ??...Is she behind all this and Why ?.....As incidents continue throughout the world Ledger and the DMS find themselves ( and the public ) under attack and the normally, extremely helpful computer system Mindreader is unable to 'detect' where the attacks are coming from and indeed seems to be 'hacked'......
All in all, a rollicking good read, and a very worthy addition to the series...
Can't wait for the next one....Enjoy.
Cheers,
Bob

4.0 out of 5 stars LCD TV Pedestal Stand.........great but expensive., 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I give this 4 stars, only because it is expensive, otherwise I would give it 5 stars...
It cost me £50 but a better price would be £35 - £40......
I replaced the base stand on my Toshiba Regza 37" Tv as it had been previously wall mounted and I now wanted to put it on a tv stand on a unit in my living room.....
This stand arrived within 2 days ( excellent ) and although not difficult to assemble it's not 'a piece of cake'...Take your time, and go slowly, following the diagrams carefully and you'll assemble it in about half an hour....Its very robust, looks great and has multiple height positions to ensure you get the right height to match your tv unit..
All in all a great replacement for an original 'lost' tv base stand but slightly expensive.......but I couldn't get one anywhere else and this is a really fabulous looking ( and stable ) replacement..
