I was quite envious of Booker’s aunt and uncle having their own bookshop but sadly Booker is called upon to help them dispatch the remaining books as they are having to close due to the lack of financial gain from running it. It was actually nice to hear of a grown man still having quite a close relationship with someone other that the immediate family, sadly though his return to Romney Marsh does not quite go to how he envisions it.

Booker is a bit of an enigma. He seems to drift from place to place and into relationship to relationship. He doesn’t seem to think things through, preferring to get caught up in the whole moment and seeing where life takes him.

Fearing for the worst his fears are soon founded and Booker gets caught up in the whole investigation as to what happened to his aunt and uncle. He soon strikes up a relationship of sorts with DC Cash who is working on his relatives case. The relationship between both is very much a straight forward one to start with but then a deepening of respect for both starts coming through and Cash probably makes a few more allowances for Booker than she should.

Bad Sons is not your straight forward typical crime series. Told in the first person by Booker himself, this is a tension fuelled read full of suspense. Booker and Cash are definitely a force to be reckoned with and I can not wait to see what the author has in store for us next.

I enjoyed this book. It starts as a nephew desperate to find out why his Aunt and Uncle had gone missing but quickly one thing leads to another and Booker and Cash end up facing death. The puzzlement and fear are well conveyed by the author as Booker tries to work out what lead to the disappearance of his family members. As Booker unravels the mystery each conclusion seems logical, each action sensible. I liked the relationship Booker and Cash formed, both are likeable and believable...although I was surprised that Cash would go off without leaving anyone with a clue where they were. I assumed, along with Booker, that I knew what was going on.....but.....I won't say anymore, you'll have to read it yourself!

wonderful absorbing story, loved every page and so enjoyed the humour. Booker is a hero, yes not your typical macho, muscle bound man, more sentimental, with past issues, a bit of a wuss at times but this makes him more endearing and likeable. The chemistry between him and Cash work very well, working through a range of emotions, in the beginning they rub each other up the wrong way but as the story develops and the mystery gets deeper they form a deep respect and friendship for each other. Won't give any spoilers away but will say one of the best books I read so far this year, if you like action and adventure escapism, then this book is just up your street .

I was expecting something slightly different from what I got here.

I thought it was a police procedural. It is, and it isn't. There's so much more to it.

I loved the back story, and how it all weaves together, and it made me want to visit the marsh. I've secretly planned to visit to see the barren landscape.

At odd times, I wanted the action quicker, but I really bought into the main characters, and am reading the next in the series now

I enjoyed reading most of this book but was disappointed with the end. For the most part the story is told in an imaginative way with a sprinkle of humour. The plot is built up well and is very plausible, with the events that happen seeming to be 'in-line' with the suggested motives. Such a shame that the explanation seemed to me to be a let down. A better ending would have earned that extra star and made it a really good story.

I have seen some reviewers who have said how much they have enjoyed a book and then only give it three stars, which I find odd. I did enjoy this book and I would recommend it to anyone, but not as highly as I have Oliver Tidy's other books and that is the only reason that Bad Sons doesn't get to five stars from me. This book is very well written, with great dynamics between the central characters and a very good story line.
So, you're wondering, why only four stars then? Well for me there was a little too much drama in too short of a time frame, which for many, who are comfortable sitting on the edge of their seats, this would be no problem. You should buy it, as you won't find too many books out there, at £1.99 and often a lot more, that are much better.

Having enjoyed the Romney & Marsh series so much, there is always that slight worry about starting a new series by the same author. I needn't have worried. This book was excellent. Less humerous and grittier, it was a consuming read. The main characters are flawed in a way that makes them relatable and interesting. The plot draws you in and holds your attention until the twisted end. Right, off to read book 2.

I loved this book ....totally immersed in it and couldn't wait to get back to it! The writing style was great...cynical but sensible and reasonable. The descriptions of the village and countryside were so good, I could imagine myself there. I could empathise with the loss of his aunt and uncle....his grief was real and understood.
Looking forward to the next one which I have pre ordered....want to know what happens with him and Jo !! Carry on please Oliver Tidy...it has been a a long time since I have been so engaged !!
