This review is from: The Watermen (Tom Pascoe 1) (Paperback)
Yes, a decent start for a new historical/detective series. This genre has churned out many books, a good number unreadable though: this one I would put in the in-between range (but with the risk of falling into the unreadable pit if some things are not improved). The plot is ok but characterisation and environmental description are lacking a bit for my taste. Maybe more history wouldn't be bad either. At times there are some repetitive actions but all in all it was an entertaining, quick and easy read . I might try the second one.
