3.0 out of 5 stars The Hanging Girl, 12 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This latest outing of Department Q rather lacked the sparkle of earlier books. Moreover the plot was exceedingly contrived with a tedious conclusion. I was rather glad to move on to something else.

Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone never fails to intrigue me and provide an enjoyable read. Even the minutiae of Kinsey's singular life are absorbing. I await patiently for the next but disappointingly we are nearing the end of the alphabet!

An efficient, practical solution to my needs. Lanyard essential as it is rather small.

The Pale House: The Sequel to The Man from Berlin (A Gregor Reinhardt Novel Book 2)
Price: £1.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Reinhardt's agonising over his conversion to active opposition of Nazi aggression is repetitious and tiresome. The paragraphing, 14 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting, complex about the mysterious deaths of German soldiers in the last days of the German occupation of Sarajevo in 1945. The writer is well versed in the history of the German Army and the emerging Yugoslavia. However there are problems: Reinhardt's agonising over his conversion to active opposition of Nazi aggression is repetitious and tiresome. The paragraphing is difficult insofar as one is not sure who is speaking or being addressed. And the use of the English vernacular for the Ustase hardman is comical. I am left wondering whether I would read the last book of the trilogy?

3.0 out of 5 stars as such it is not an easy read, a fact not helped by being written ..., 29 July 2015

This review is from: Perfidia (Kindle Edition)
This is a long and complex novel; as such it is not an easy read, a fact not helped by being written largely in the vernacular/LAPD argot. It is the first volume in Ellroy's Second LA Quartet. The main theme of the book is the intense rivalry between careworn, ambitious Captain Bill Parker who wishes to be the next chief of the LAPD and the urbane, ruthless and brutal Sergeant Dudley Smith. It is set against the murder of a Japanese family at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbour. There are various sub-themes - police brutality, corruption and framing of suspects, racism, collaboration, attitudes toward women, Hollywood and the star mentality - to name a few. The book is too long and the ending somewhat contrived and hurried. The book does provide a sense of time and popular feelings in December, 1941.

Unbelievable as usual, of course, but a lively read, particularly for the summer holidays. Interesting concluding twist.

3.0 out of 5 stars In Bad Grace?, 6 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A series in obvious decline. Now we have a seemingly superhuman villain and the mystery of Sandy to try and lure us into the next book. Do I care sufficiently? Perhaps not!
