Convoluted plot, pure nonsense. French seems to work in a vacuum as a one off detective with no team. Writing also very poor. Shows the power of publicity to award an undeserved reputation.

4.0 out of 5 stars This would have made them useless for the task of landing agents or pigeons, 11 Dec. 2014
This review is from: The Suicide Club (Kindle Edition)
I’d endorse everything that has been said about this enthralling, finely written book. Only one criticism. Hot air balloons did not have ‘pilots.’ they were subject to the vagaries of the wind and, other than for height, could not be controlled or directed. This would have made them useless for the task of landing agents or pigeons. To the best of my knowledge, balloons were not used for this purpose in the first world war. From the earliest days of the war, agents and pigeons were not sent across the Lines by balloon, but flown across by the Royal Flying Corps. Tethered balloons were used for observation.

An Airman's Wife: A True Story of Lovers Separated by War

Edition: Hardcover

This is an excellent and moving non-fiction book about a young, married airman, killed in the First World War. Highly recommended to all interested in the subject. The identity of the fighter squadron in which the writer served, his name and real names of the people in the squadron were hidden in the first edition, because of wartime censorship. These have been given in Fall of Eagles by Alex Revell, in the chapter Bond of 40, and by the editor of this new edition.

Police: A Harry Hole thriller (Oslo Sequence 8)
Police: A Harry Hole thriller (Oslo Sequence 8)
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Puzzled, 2 Sept. 2014
Along with Bernie Gunther, Harry Hole is just about my favorite detective in fiction. However, I've just finished Police and enjoyed it, although I am a little puzzled. Am I the only person who thought the patient recovering hospital was Harry - I'm sure that was Nesbo's intention - and puzzled after the patient's death, when Harry turned up lecturing at the PHS?. I knew the patient would turn out not to have been Harry, of course, and everything was belatedly explained on page 220 or so, but I thought that I had perhaps missed a book in the sequence. Easy to do as I started out of sequence and have recently re-read them. Have I missed a book where Harry solves who murdered his colleague Ellen Gjelten and deals with Tom Waler? I've read through the reviews of all the books and none of them mention it.

Only disappointment was the fact that they had to be dispatched from China, which meant a long wait. Possibly my own fault for not reading the small print enough, but disappointing, all the same

5.0 out of 5 stars Help please anyone with an annoying feature, 2 Feb. 2014
This is a great machine, but with, to me, one annoying fault. A 'reminder' of a programme, which is just about to start recording, comimng up on the TV. In the nature of the timing this usually comes up during the last minute or so of the programme being watched, in what, in a play or film, can be a crucial part of the programme. A further annoyance is that it doesn't always do this. There seems to be no consistancy for this. Does anyone know how to turn this off. Help much appreciated.
