Crucial Evidence
Crucial Evidence
by Margaret Barnes
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Crucial Evidence by Margaret Barnes, 17 Mar 2014
This review is from: Crucial Evidence (Paperback)
A thoroughly good read with good pace and absorbing detail. The action centres on two feisty and principled female characters. Through Cassie, Lenny's defence lawyer, we gain insights into the political manoeuvrings which bedevil career advancement in legal chambers. The experiences of both Cassie and her police counterpart, Alex, highlight the latent misogyny which still occasionally surfaces in many walks of life.

The descriptions of the Holland Park area of London are navigated with skill and all the characters, whether market traders, Lenny and his family, or legal colleagues are convincingly portrayed.

I look forward to a sequel. A.C.

1.0 out of 5 stars pvr, 25 Aug 2010
I bought this as a reduced price pvr from Avides, to replace a Humax which had become unreliable. It was as new but did not work. Avides said to contact Sharp; I tried but not easy. I gave up and subsequently bought a Hitachi pvr which is great. Never buy unless it is new and from a reliable supplier.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 25 Aug 2010
I bought this as a wireless printer for my wife's new laptop. I tried it out by direct connection to my computer and it worked well with magnificent laser colour prints. However, the wireless part would not work. I phoned Samsung who said that the instructions were wrong and e-mailed new instructions. No success so I phoned again; they sent sombody out who played with it and said the BT hub was the problem. BT says the hub is OK. I gave up at that stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Immigration, 25 Aug 2010
This is a factual book which starts with anecdotes about memories of growing up in the midlands and then becomes more serious. It is a good depiction of the problems of living in two cultures and a thorough analysis of an inherited family medical problem. As with all the best books, I learnt something new. Well recommended.

The letters are relevant to all ages as well as to his grandchildren. They give intelligent reviews of modern life and encourage moral/political principles without being too revolutionary. Everybody should read this well-written book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing., 25 Aug 2010

This is a factual book and is excellent at the dilemmas of a child growing up in Nazi Germany but adopting England after WW2. It is very effective writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Editing DVDs, 1 Feb 2009
I bought this "second-hand" recorder for almost half the lowest "new" price on the internet. It had been opened but not used. It was in Germany but arrived within 3 days with UK power lead and instructions. I already had a DVD recorder and have since used it for editing and downloading from other family DVDs. It is an excellent recorder (reference the Which report) but the instructions should include a "how to edit" tutorial. It is easy now that I have mastered the mass of details! I did not need any "digital TV guides" which seem to make all the other recorders much more expensive.
