I enjoyed this book. I have never read anything by this author before and bought this for my Kindle when it came up as a suggested read. Good story, nicely drawn characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Time this PC Plod plodded off, 6 Jun. 2015

Not really sure how much more mileage there is in the Roy Grace series. I have read all of the books and the more recent ones are, in my opinion, not as good as the earlier books. The Sandy sub plot is becoming more far fetched with each subsequent novel and unfortunately Mr James seems to be making more and more use of improbable names for his characters and this coupled with ever more bizarre and sadistic murders seems to signal that maybe the author is stuck on a treadmill, just churning out any old tosh. This is the last Roy Grace novel I will read.

Another great read. Interesting to see that painting is definitely alive and well in the 21st century.

Really enjoyed this book. It introduced me to a host of contemporary artists from around the globe who I have not heard of before. The book is divided into sections and each section has a number of artist interviews and illustrations. Great book for dissertation reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars My mojo flew out of the window, 31 Jan. 2015

Don't be fooled by the title,I found this book to be a poor sort of "you can do" self help book with some kiddie art thrown in. I was expecting a more serious and "grown up" hints and tips with workshop style exercises in unusual mixed media techniques for artists. What I got was the assorted ramblings of people who had been "in a bad place" but used art (I use the term loosely) to find themselves again. The exercises are very basic and the kind of thing taught to primary school children. Perhaps I got confused with another book when I bought this, whatever, I would nt recommend this to anyone seeking ideas for serious art techniques.

3.0 out of 5 stars Retirement looming?, 31 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Definitely not the best Roy Grace novel. Twisted psychopathy is just that bit too far fetched and characters are beginning to acquire ridiculous names (Red; Cassian). The whole Sandy is she/isn't she dead/coming back has become tired, as indeed I feel is the main character himself. Not sure how much more mileage there is in these 'old warhorse' detectives in the modern world. Possibly time for Roy Grace to hand in his warrant card.

I am a huge fan of Gerald Seymour but somehow had never read Harrys Game until now. I was transported back in time to the newsreels of the 70's and 80's of the Troubles, brilliantly written, poignant and honest this is a book in the same mould as The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.
