3.0 out of 5 stars Not to my taste, 1 Sep 2014
This is a very British book in the humour and dialogue and harps back to an earlier age where most of the characters are middle class and decent. Maxwell, the protagonist, embodies this, even down to his inability to use a mobile when necessary. It is all very cozy except the plot which involves a serial Casanova seducing young girls then killing them. The book is funny with some genuine laugh out loud moments but I can't say it particularly appealed to me and I won't be running out to buy another in the series.
The Celtic Dagger (A Fitzjohn Mystery Book 1) by Jill Paterson
4.0 out of 5 stars A short read, 31 Aug 2014
The Celtic Dagger is an easy way to pass a couple of hours as it is a short read. It won't win any prizes or shake the foundations of the literary world but it has a pleasant style, doesn't require much brain power and the plot is interesting enough to keep you reading.
Never Coming Back: David Raker Novel #4 by Tim Weaver
5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 31 Aug 2014
I think this is probably the best yet in the series. I was glued to this tale of a family who disappeared leaving only a carton of spilt milk to suggest it wasn't voluntary. Obviously you have to suspend your disbelief on page one but if you take that as read what you get is a rollicking good read with multiple twists and turns. David Raker is a good protagonist with a crusading zeal which is very attractive in fiction, but probably not so much in real life so the police's antagonism towards him is very understandable and adds another dimension to the book. Bring on Fall From Grace.
