My most-favourite character in all the world is Sergeant Davy Shea who views his boss chief Parker with a sort of fond derision, and who tramples on rare plants seeing them as weeds. Davy has a thing about waitresses and can't wait for Parker to do some real policing. We also have the return of the rather naughty, beautiful, Dr Phyllis Skypeck..
The background to this latest tale is the most beautifully depicted New England rural scene.
This is a gentle, laugh-out-loud book and I can't wait for some enterprising television producer to see the potential and get the series on the screen. Get writing, Stanley Reynolds - I can't wait for number 5!
In the new North Holford Mystery, 'Murder In Arcady', the fourth outing for Police Chief Parker "Boomer" Daniels, the descendants of the first settlers, in the shape of twin sisters Prudence and Patience Appleseed, get a comic roasting.
This new Reynolds is a farce full off eccentric characters.
Step in billionaire Alonzo the Arch Dude Stagg; the Rev Chuck of the Holy Astrology Church of Divine Guidance; Wazoo Annie, Chuck's sidekick; Jonny Peru of the 'New York Daily Jolt', Vince Vanilla of the 'Boston Evening Lightning'; Calypso Mae and Atalanta, two of Rev Chucks's reluctant converts; Dr Phyllis Skypeck of easy virtue and Savannah Moon of even easier virtue; Buckshot Logan, the chief of the Nontuck Tribe and Tula Salome, the beautiful Native American princess.
And of course, there is murder that Parker Daniels and Sgt Davy Shea have to solve..
An entertaining and of course, unusual read.
The murder is almost serious enough, but mostly we have sex raising its comic head.
