5.0 out of 5 stars The Rockford File: The Green Bottle, 3 July 2010
This review is from: The Rockford Files: The Green Bottle (Hardcover)
I loved the t.v series about Jame ROCKFORD P.I. and so on finding that there were books available decided to try one. They don't seem to be easy to find so Amazon was ideal to get a copy.

If you enjoyed the t.v. series the book will not let you down, if you've never seen the show the book still won't let you down!!

Knowing the character portrayed ON T.V. by James GARNER as soon as you read the book it was just like you were involved in watching another episode. This book (and the other book, 'Devil on My Doorstep') read just as though they were scripts for unreleased shows. The author, Stuart M KAMINSKY, had you sucked in, these were my first books I'd read by him, and he just had you turning page after page. The books both felt like they ended too soon, I could have read another 400 pages!

The only down side for me with regard to the Rockford Files books is that there are that I'm aware of, only the two of them.... THERE SHOULD BE MORE!

I really enjoyed 'The Green Bottle' and I would recommend it to anyone.

10/10

4.0 out of 5 stars a must-read for Rockford fans., 20 Nov. 1996
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rockford Files: The Green Bottle (Hardcover)
Everyone's favorite television private-eye is back in this fast-paced mystery. Rockford is hired to recover a stolen collectible bottle which leads him to hunt for a missing girl. Along the way Rockford is waylaid and encounters other characters from the television show, including his friend Angel, attorney Beth, inspector Dennis Becker, and a host of unsavory thugs out to end his life or make it miserable.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the original Rockford files, 12 April 1999
By A Customer
Kaminsky captures Rockford's sardonic style perfectly. All the old-time cast members appear in the book -- Angel, Becker, Beth Davenport. Kaminsky truly understands the anti-hero appeal of Rockford. If you loved the series, you'll love this book.

This review is from: The Rockford Files: The Green Bottle (Hardcover)
Kaminsky is a terrific novelist. He tells the story from Jim Rockford's perspective and convincingly gets under the skin of the character.

This is a simple but clever story which takes Rockford on a story with some interesting twists and turns. What I love about this writer is his attention to detail which beautifully illustrates and colours the plot.

Thoughtfully and skilfully written and an enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad read, 24 Aug. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rockford Files: The Green Bottle (Hardcover)
Very fluently written, but Rockford, the PI who got bad knees, is a really pathetic character. The law couldn't do nothing and has to let the rich doctor go away with the triple murders is just another bad laugh after the OJ Simpson's trial. A pathetic, small-time PI struggled to make a miserable living in LA after so many years is another hopeless irony that we could do without. The story itself wrapped up roughly in the end after a too-long and tiresome merry-go-around plot that also going nowhere.
