Gray Justice (Tom Gray #1)
Gray Justice (Tom Gray #1)

4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful Gray, 30 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an unusual plot with a well thought out approach and fast-moving action.Gray makes a likely hero and am looking forward to reading the remainder of the trilogy.


Fred Trueman: The Authorised Biography
Fred Trueman: The Authorised Biography
by Chris Waters
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A Six Hit!, 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a Yorkshire County Cricket member,I obviously have a marked bias (even though Mr Truman was somewhat scathing towards the club's members on occasions).However credit must go to the author for producing a book both fair and objective.Chris Waters has had access to footage and documentation probably not revealed before,resulting in a quite original biography.Having read other biographies on the Yorkshire legend,I wouldn't have bought this version had it not been recommended by a friend,but having enjoyed the book,thanks to the author for the immense effort put into the work.Let's have another one on D.B.Close,Chris!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing., 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having enjoyed the first book in the series,I confess that I was looking forward to reading the continuation.However,I was a little disappointed with the novel.Certain pivotal events in the book seemed to have merited insufficient attention and were skipped over all too quickly in no more than a page or two.I did find some of the denouements rather implausible and my final impression of the book left me feeling the plot was no more than a conduit for a third novel.

Border Crossings:  A Catherine James Thriller
Border Crossings: A Catherine James Thriller
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping stuff, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Catherine James is an attorney who is certainly not in the Grisham mould but is torn between her profession and her conscience in her own swerving style.A no-nonsense character determined to see justice done,Catherine recruits a former marine to right the wrongs of international trafficking and smuggling.Engrossing from the outset,the novel is fast-moving with twists and surprising developments, resulting in a very enjoyable book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth your time, 15 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I confess to being daunted by the prospect of a novel complicated by the notion of family trees.To his credit,Jefferson has created an extremely interesting plot in the modern era interspersed with flashbacks of a Cornish history laced with smuggling and wreckers.In a fast-moving atmosphere,this is a beautifully written and composed work with a developing heroic figure and leaves me wanting to follow him through his further escapades.Thoroughly enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars last of my summer wine, 13 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I found the wine-growing aspect of the book to give an interesting insight into the world of the wine producer,I was left a little disappointed by the lack of intrigue in the book.The language I found to be too simple and naive and I would describe the book as more of a story than a novel.I feel it needed more depth to the protagonists and am sure the author would add to the theme had he written in the third person rather than the first person.The setting is open for further books in the field of wine production and murder and I wish Steven success.
