5.0 out of 5 stars A real gem!
This is a real gem! Superbly plotted and totally gripping. I downloaded 'Business is Murder' this morning and I was genuinely late for an appointment because I couldn't stop reading it! I loved it on so many levels: its believable, sharply observed characterisation; its crackling dialogue; its genuinely unexpected twists; its sharply humorous writing that caused me to...

2.0 out of 5 stars Tries hard
When it comes to wise-cracking private detectives, only Raymond Chandler is worth 5 stars. This book is quite a page-turner, but I got the feeling the author (whose children's stories I rate very highly) is not trusting himself to write imaginatively and consequently relies heavily on cliches. Compare Chandler's 'cold as boarding-house soup' with Roger Hurn's 'cold as a...

2.0 out of 5 stars It's a no no, 31 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Business Is Murder (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
Didn't enjoy this authors writing style found it to be more like a comic than a serious story with all the jokey, jokey phrases. Shan't be reading any more Roger Hurn novels.

This review is from: Business Is Murder (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
OK but quite lightweight, don't think I will try any others. Not very descriptive and though DK's language did conjure up the character well

3.0 out of 5 stars Just about OK, 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Business Is Murder (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
This was one of the quickest reads I have ever had.
It was simple straightforward gumshoe bubble-gum.
I expect its the author's first attempt, and it did pass some time on sitting in the sun, but not really productively.
Having said that I could see this PI character turning into a TV detective (Eddie Shoestring or Hazel?)

1.0 out of 5 stars Tom, 18 July 2013

This review is from: Business Is Murder (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
If I had noticed this book was only an estimated 86 pages I would not have bought it. The plot had potential but it never got a chance to blossom. To me this was little more than an essay...

I put a one star tick just to be able to send you this message. There doesn't seem to be any way I can get a message to you otherwise. ??
