4.0 out of 5 stars Indelible, 1 Aug 2014
Chris Honeysett is an artist and a private detective but he is less than organised and lives in a very hand to mouth way with his girlfriend who is also involved with Tim his part time employee in the detective agency. When Chris is nearly killed by a runaway car driven by a man who was coming to visit him, he finds himself involved in a strange mystery which leads to him teaching at a private art school, at which he had taught briefly some years before.

This is the first part of a four part novel which is published between July and October 2014. If you don't like having to wait for the conclusion of a story I suggest buying all four parts before you start reading part one! In this episode, the reader is introduced to the characters and some of their back story but we are left wondering about precisely what it is that Martha wants to announce at her eightieth birthday party which will tear her family apart.

I felt there were just too many characters in this episode to really assimilate. There is Martha and her husband, their three children and their significant others and their own offspring plus a few other people who are… Read more
