Death on Account (The Lakeland Murders) by J J Salkeld

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a good series, 5 Feb 2014
Having now read several of this series I do enjoy them and I feel the characterisation and the plots are very good. I would recommend to anyone who likes the police procedural and plenty of action that is not too far fetched or indeed gory! A small point - it's not possible to have a new set of number plates made up - at least in any reputable shop - without a vehicle registration document showing the correct registration number. So the false plates purchased later in the book could not have been acquired in the type of store described - this change in the law occurred several years ago for obvious reasons.
SNOW! (SNOW!  Trilogy) by Ryan Clifford

Just imagine that the relentless rainfall we have suffered recently in the UK (winter 2013/14) had been snow. A few years ago this might well have been the case. It would have needed only to be a few degrees colder and we might have been in the scenario portrayed in Snow! Forget for a moment the sometimes poor editing, the possible shortfalls in characterisation and consider what would really happen in the UK if this weather event arose. I for one would not be putting any faith in the "authorities" - look at how badly they have dealt with a bit of flooding in the west country, eventually turning out the army in a cynical PR exercise. Ryan Clifford may not be the world's best writer… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars It's just about OK, 17 Jan 2014
No characters you care about - that's always a mistake I think. The plot is OK and you do want to know the ending but there is a lot of pointless action that comes over more like a screenplay than a novel, as if the author is looking for the movie contract. I wouldn't hold out too much hope - although I have seen worse films lately!
