5.0 out of 5 stars Neat, responsive and ergonomically just right., 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the second of this particular item I've purchased, (the first one is still functioning very well) but I was forever switching it between lap tops. It fits well into the hand, has a 'soft' feel to it and manoeuvres well. Very sharp and responsive and has a pretty good battery life. I'd certainly recommend for quality and the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality impressive with no distortion, 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find it difficult to fault this speaker, and have been amazed at the Bluetooth reproduction even at a considerable distance from my I pad. Setting it up took seconds and it really packs a decent punch with the volume and no distortion. I find the level and amount of bass is sufficient and the degree of clarity to be of a high quality. A very compact package complete with a carrying pouch. I'd certainly recommend it especially given the purchase price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised & a good introduction for a 'Junior'., 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My first thought was 'how on earth can you not be stepping on the toes of Rebus'?
A pretty good storyline which is far from run of the mill, especially with the DC having more gumption than his DI, (who has a terrible case of professional myopia).
I feel the author, Ed James has got the balance just right for what should be a good series for DC Scott Cullen.
I shall certainly be purchasing the next book and can only hope it's as good a read as this one, (which I red in three 'sittings'.
Despite being a big fan of MacBride and Rankin, Ed James has the makings of being up there with them if he continues with this genre.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mills & Boon meets Jackanory, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Apart from a very predictable outcome, the creation of such wooden characters must have been difficult for Ms Russell. Disjointed drivel that goes way beyond the realms of fictional Crime/Thriller. Incredulous conclusions reached by unbelievable detection leave this tripe in the land of make believe. As for the wife of the DS, eat your heart out Mills & Boon.


Birthdays for the Dead
Birthdays for the Dead
Price: £3.32

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, suspense, gruesome and dark., 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a big fan of Stuart MacBride and it's refreshing to read his work other than Roberta and Logan, (much as I like them). The main character, DC Ash Henderson, (formerly a DI) is a cop with 'attitude' and doesn't pull any punches- literally.
MacBeard gives no clues away as to the 'perp' is and it's not exactly a case of 'And they all lived happily ever after'.
Looking forward to a follow up, (assuming Ash Henderson is still around).

1.0 out of 5 stars The 'Wheelie Bin prizewinner for utter garbage., 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fanciful trash, the likes of which would usually be written by an eight year old.
One would have expected that by book 4, the author would have moved on from amateurish attempts at crime/thriller novels.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crime thriller or crime KILLER???, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book should be divided into two. One part should be in 'Peoples Friend' and the remainder in Marvel Comics.
Russell would be best suited as a ghost writer for Mills and Boon.

Cut Short (BOOK 1 in DI Geraldine Steel Series)
Price: £0.69

3.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight but readable, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A decent introduction to DI Geraldine Steel but despite a potentially good plot it tended to be peppered with too much unnecessary padding and waffle.
Steel however is pretty true to life complete with baggage and future reads should improve, (without the waffle hopefully).

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for my needs, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't usually wear cardigans but early spring in the Algarve can be cool in the evenings and this is the perfect answer for me when dining out. Decent design and a really good fit, (I was concerned that it may be either too large or too small). Nice soft feel to it despite only 30% being wool. I bought the cream and blue together and I would certainly recommend them both for quality and price.
