Dead on Demand (A DCI Morton Crime Novel) by Sean Campbell
I can't go overboard on rating this book. I took far to long to read it.
Whilst the plot is good I found it just a bit too complicated and had difficulty in working out who was who.
The end came rather quickly and I felt the author wanted to wind it up and get it over.
The very final twist was however superb and wasn't expected. Clever.
Has anyone else read any of the children's books ' The Lone Pine' series by Malcolm Saville?
One of the young characters was called David Morton. Strangely I couldn't shift the idea of the DI being him as an adult.
The Missing Gun (Hawker of the Yard) by W H Oxley

I'm old enough to have read Gideon of the Yard. It's not him.
I remember the Sweeny. It's not Jack Regan although the language could be.
A detective with a passion for Sherlock Homes and good deductive skills. TVs Jonathan Creek? Nope.
I finished it. Enjoyed it. But will I remember it? Possibility not.
Others may think different and star up or down.
3 stars is a personal choice. Don't be put off by my review.
Fifty Great Things to Come Out of the Midlands by Robert Shore
3.0 out of 5 stars I'm a Midlander., 3 May 2014
That's why I read this.
There are a few interesting bits of trivia. Sadly none actually spring to mind at the time of writing.
So that really is the impact of this book.
All is not lost. I'm going to read it again and annoy friends and family with some of items.
