The Detectives : Complete Series 1-5 BBC Box Set (&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Jasper Carrott

I've just started watching all the episodes again with my nine year old son who finds them absolutely hilarious! In one particular episode, Briggs & Louis had a side bet of 10 and it was comedy genius watching the two of them - I would dearly love to see another series commissioned by the beeb.

I thought The Firm & The Client were amazing books, they had me on the edge of my seat, real page turners (sorry for the cliches!) but The Brethren was nothing like any of those.
The story appears to build up really well, but all through the book you are waiting for "the twist" or a piece of action, but it just never comes.
It was one of those books that I just had to read to the end to see if anything "happens" but it doesn't, not the way we expect of Mr Grisham.
Avoid this if you can, Im sure you could read 441 pages of something more exciting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply wonderful!!, 31 Aug 2002
This was one of those "last minute" books that you spot on the way out of a bookshop. For some reason, it just caught my eye (shouldn't judge a book by its cover, I know!).
I started reading it and before I knew it, I'd got through the 1st 100 pages. It is such an atmospheric book, I've never been to Burma, but the book actually takes you there, whereas other books can try, but just don't manage it.
Patrica has done her homework, there's no doubt about that. The political details were spot on all the way through.
I won't tell you about the plot, you can find that on the sypnosis, all I will say is "BUY IT".
