First time I have read anything by this author,
This review is from: The Burry Man's Day (Dandy Gilver Murder Mystery 2) (Paperback)
I read this book following a recommendation by a friend. I thoroughly enjoyed it and in turn I would recommend it. This is a gentle read, a step back in time to another era. It probably helped that I lived in South Queensferry for several years and so know the area well, recognised the various locations mentioned in the book and have seen the "Burry Man" many times. I think that the book is very well written, the author's powers of description are excellent and in contrast to modern crime/mystery novels the language is gentle rather than offensive. The book contains humour and there is a twist at the end which I did not expect. I would think that is is perhaps more of a woman's book than the sort of book a man would choose to read as it ambles rather than races but it is definitely a good read and I will definitely buy another book by Catriona McPherson.
