Blood Cries Afar: The Forgotten Invasion of England 1216
Lizzie the Wizzie and the Deadly Voodoo Tattoo
A Seven Year Hitch
Meanwhile, Dr Jeanette Shaw, a tough cookie if ever there was one, witnesses a robbery in a London computer store and it also changes her life.
Bizarrely, the two seemingly unconnected events are linked, and Dr Shaw finds that she is involved in solving the mystery. She is brought in by her ex-husband, a police officer, to work on the case and finds that she enjoys it very much as she has always wanted to hold an Hercule Poirot final revelatory scene. Will she get to live her fantasy?
What part, if any, do the rich family of a dead woman have to play in her death, and how are they linked to the Boy from Colombo?
This is a real teaser of a story. I didn't guess the ending and was kept hanging on in delightful suspense. A very enjoyable book, and well written.
Almost "it was The Butler, in The Library, with the Candle stick" (it wasn't) but the narrative is poor with over-exaggerated descriptions, highly improbable events (throw a mobile phone from some distance with such force and pinpoint accuracy sufficient to disable an armed thief??) and concludes with annoying loose ends (one of the main characters does not even get a mention).
Also my Kindle version had spelling mistakes (which are probably not the fault of the author) but I find that very annoying.
Sorry. Not for me.
