3.0 out of 5 stars I'm not sure what this is meant to be.
I'm old enough to have read Gideon of the Yard. It's not him.
I remember the Sweeny. It's not Jack Regan although the language could be.
A detective with a passion for Sherlock Homes and good deductive skills. TVs Jonathan Creek? Nope.
I finished it. Enjoyed it. But will I remember it? Possibility not.
Others may think different and star up or...

This review is from: The Missing Gun (Hawker of the Yard Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
A good and easy read , with a typical old English humour throw in, would recommend it. Would try to read the other books from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hawker, 7 April 2014

This review is from: The Missing Gun (Hawker of the Yard Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
A nice "simple" read with an interesting plot of who done it!?

The text was easy to read, it took you along at a good pace without being flamboyant and kept you guessing a bit.

This was the first time I've read a story by W.H. Oxley and will happily seek out another. Hawker of the yard is quite a character that I'd like to read more of

4.0 out of 5 stars An easy relaxing read, 22 Sep 2014

This review is from: The Missing Gun (Hawker of the Yard Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
An 'armchair' easy read. A story you can pick up and put down for another day as it is certainly not gripping.
What I would call an old fashion cop story. I liked it for the above sometime I just need an easy read.
I would say give it a go.

A pleasant, fairly predictable way to while away an hour or two but don't expect the earth to move for you !

This review is from: The Missing Gun (Hawker of the Yard Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I thought this was an ok-read. A bit predictable, and the characters could do with being bulked out somewhat. However, on an aeroplane with a glass of duty free its ok.

I really enjoyed this book - a good old-fashioned read that did not rely upon bad language to make the story exciting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unsure, 26 May 2014

This review is from: The Missing Gun (Hawker of the Yard Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Different take on a Sherlock Holmes type story. Hawker of Scotland Yard sets out to solve the mystery at the pawnbrokers. Nothing wrong with an old fashioned story, very quick read not much to it.
