A Death in Summer (Quirke 4) by Benjamin Black
A Death in Summer (Quirke 4) by Benjamin Black

Set in the mid 1950s in Dublin about newspaper magnate Richard ( Diamond Dick ) Jewell who apparently commits suicide at his country house - but all is not what it seems and Dr Quirke and Inspector Hackett are soon on the case to solve the mystery. There are plenty of red herrings thrown it for good measure along the way. I like the way that the atmosphere of the mid 1950s is well captured although at one point there was mention of an ambulance using a siren that I thought was a bit anachronistic as in the 1950s emergency vehicles used a bell not a siren however that aside it was a good story with a satisfying conclusion.

Trying to seal a bath or a shower tray when they've been installed wrongly is a waste of time and never works , the only way you're going to get a watertight seal is by taking the bath or shower tray out removing the tiles and fitting the bath and shower tray back tight against the wall and tiling down on top of the bath or tray so the water just runs down the wall into the bath not behind it. Correct installation is the only way
O Brother Where Art Thou? [DVD] [2000] <b>DVD</b> ~ George Clooney

Apparently based on Homer's Odyssey ( Although I can't seen how unless the connection is it's about a journey with trials !! ) it follows the adventures of three hapless criminals on the run in Mississippi after escaping the chain gang. George Clooney is perfect as the leader of the other two losers as they search for Clooney's alleged treasure and encounter various criminals and con men along the way as well as recording what turns out to be a chart topping record. Brilliantly funny and entertaining - a must see.
