3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the last one., 23 Nov 2004
I DID find myself page turning on this one as there was a deadline for murder! It was good, but still not believable really as the dialogue was still a bit un-real and the characters still not identifiable as normal people.
It was a good book to while away the hours but a book in which you forget all about the plot just a few days after you've read it. A good money earner for Alex Kava but not a mainstay in thriller fiction by any means! If you normally read Ruth Rendell or P.D.James don't buy this book, unless you want a rest from cerebral thrillers. This is a 'Thriller for the masses.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece from the queen of crime., 23 Nov 2004
This review is from: A Taste for Death (Paperback)
P.D.James shines here with this novel which contains everything needed in a murder mystery.
Gripping from start to finish, this novel sees Dalgliesh caught up in an investigation which has turned personal - he knew the victim. There are many twists and turns here as they try to unravel the clues and evidence to point them to a ruthless and sadistic killer. There are many sub-plots in the novel which try to lead you astray, but ultimately it comes down to one ruthless murderer. Kate Miskin features heavily in this story and a great part of the novel involves her personal life which we have not seen until now.
A truly thrilling cerebral mystery, which delivers the goods intelligently and VERY Englishly! One of my personal favourites which I read again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've read, and re-read and will again read!, 7 Dec 2003
what a fantastic book. One of my absolute favourite adam dalgliesh mysteries. The classic 'whodunnit', the surprise ending will satisfy, and getting there is exciting too!
you will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars In my TOP 10 of ALL TIME!!!!!!, 25 Nov 2003
This review is from: Dog Soldiers [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
what a BRILLIANT FILM!!!!!!!
Casting - BRILL!! The sergeant and 'spoon' are FANTASTIC!!
Extremely, totally British, Witty dialogue, just the right amount of suspense and gore mixed with hilarious little moments make this one of the best films of all time in my opinion!
Also, believable behaviour for once in a movie - in the absence of a machine gun or rocket launcher throw tea cups at the werewolf! hysterical!
you can't go wrong!!! I, for one will be buying it for myself for christmas!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A parents dream come true!!!!, 21 Sep 2003
What a marvellous DVD (or video) this is!
my one year old doesn't stay focused on anything for longer than one minute but this has her absolutely mesmerized from the start. Even my 6 year old loves it!! so what does that tell you. The music is lovely, and the toys are fascinatingly displayed and worked to fit with the music. It's a must for any mother who wants to have a 20 minute phone call without being tugged on incessantly!
