Darkness, Take My Hand: 2 (Kenzie and Gennaro) by Dennis Lehane
2.0 out of 5 stars The Book, 15 May 2014
I really enjoy detective novels so I thought I would give this author a go. Much as I enjoyed the various murders, I really do not enjoy the rhetoric that a lot of American writers put into their books. I am not much interested in how brown the jacket was or how his face looked in the dark. Give me a good author, who holds my interest without all of this unnecessary prose.
The Hangman's Song (Inspector Mclean 3) by James Oswald
I read a lot of crime fiction and I really liked James Oswald's character, Detective Inspector MacLean but I really don't like the supernatual theme that has played a major part in all three of his books. I won't be reading anymore of his novels: shame really as, without the unbelievable being involved, they are great police crime novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read, 28 April 2014
The final book in the Lewis Trilogy was hard to accept as the entire three trilogy had me up a few nights, reading. Excellent. The descriptions of the islands and places were written so well, it felt that I was there. The story lines in all three novels were so good. I didn't want it to end. Read all three: you will not be disappointed.
