Tregunna: Murder in the heart of Cornwall
Tregunna: Murder in the heart of Cornwall
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual and Haunting, 27 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tregunna makes a sympathetic investigator, an ex policeman recovering from cancer which has left him with a body bag or stoma. He us still off sick and rather bored when he becomes interested in the murder of a social worker everybody speaks highly of. His physical limitations, lack of energy etc frustrate him and so he pursues the case, putting himself in danger. We could well hear more from this rather unlikely investigator.

This review is from: The Swimming Pool (Kindle Edition)
Who would believe that the renovation of an old swimming pool would cause so much havoc in so many lives. Everyone here either has a bad secret or is haunted by something in their past. Ed and Natalie Steele and their 13 year old daughter become infatuated with their new neighbours, the Channings. Natalie in particular becomes almost obsessed with the enigmatic Lara, to the point of ignoring her old friends to worm her way into the glamourous lifestyle of the Channings. Unfortunately, things are not exactly as they seem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting beginning for new series., 18 Aug. 2016

It is very nice to have a different setting for a new crime series I.e the Canary Islands, which evidently are very popular with Sandinavian visitors trying to get away from their cold winters. This is quite a slow moving story with the body of a beautiful woman found on a remote beach. Sara, a journalist on the local rag, gets involved when she finds out that the woman is not local but has been attending a yoga course in a remote centre. The characters are well drawn including Kristian who used to be a policeman in Oslo but moved to the Canariesbto be near his handicapped daughter. I have only given it 3 stars because I didn't like the ending which is too abrupt in my opinion but which will obviously lead onto the next in the series.

Wonderful evocation of a young girl's life in the 60s in South Carolina, living on a rather remote farm with her severe father, Lily , who is searching for the truth of what happened to her mother and how she died. She leaves with her only friend, a black woman called Rosaleen whom she rescued from jail for a trivial offence and had been beaten up. In their travels they come upon a small town which Lily knows has links to her dead mother and here they meet an extraordinary family of black sisters who take them in. Really engrossing.

Peter May is a prolific author with many successful series to his credit, including one set in Scotland and another set in France where the author currently lives.
I personally love this series set in modern day China, featuring the redoubtable forensic scientist, Margaret Campbell, and
Li Yan her Chinese detective lover. This involves the Tongs, who operate and run an immigration racket for desperate Chinese trying to reach America, their land of hope and glory.
When an undercover cop is found murdered, Li
Yan believes it his responsibility to find the killer and the head of the criminal gang responsible. Margaret, meanwhile, is getting herself more involved with Li Yan. whilst believing they have no future together. These are well drawn characters and believable situations and I would recommend this series for anyone who likes a very different background to immerse themselves in.


Knife Gun Poison Bomb (Jacquot Book 8)
Knife Gun Poison Bomb (Jacquot Book 8)
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Excellent, 7 Aug. 2016

Being a fan of the celebrated Marseilles detective, Daniel Jacquot, I looked forward to reading his latest adventure and certainly wasn't disappointed. You can almost smell the strong French coffee and the ozone, and enjoy the relationships between Jacquot and his team, this time investigating a series of gruesome murders. There seems to be no obvious link between the victims, apart from the fact that the method used appears to be exactly the same. Jacquot is also involved in a serious relationship with the beautiful and artistic Claudine who is carrying their twins, when complications arise. Well written and obviously researched by the author who must know this area very well. Highly recommended for those who like their crime with a touch of garlic.


CRIME ON THE FENS a gripping detective thriller full of suspense
CRIME ON THE FENS a gripping detective thriller full of suspense

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual Crime Series Set In The Fens, 11 July 2016

Good characterization and plot for this first of the D. NikkiI Galena mysteries. Supported by her new D.S, a rather unorthodox Joseph Easter with his own demons to control, they have to combat and solve a missing girl, drugs, gang warfare, intimidation, and murder on a sink estate. Not exactly the nice quiet transfer that Joseph had been expecting. They both have personal issues too which make them driven in their pursuit of justice, if not redemption.

Having always enjoyed Barbara Nadals books situated in Istanbul I was really looking forward to this one. However, this time she raises the spectre of cannibalism, human flesh cooked and eaten, partly to get rid of a body and partly as an experiment, perhaps disguised as pork. Turkey has, unfortunately, changed a lot since this series began, and is now run by the military, so Inspector Cetin Ikmen and his new female commissioner, have to tread cautiously. I would have also preferred Inspector Sulleyman and his lover the gypsy, Gonca, to have had a more prominent part. Still looking forward to the next one, hopefully not quite so graphic.

The Golden Scales: A Makana Investigation

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent evocation of present day Cairo, 25 May 2016

Thought-provoking, graphic at times, but always interesting. The character of the ex policeman, Makana, reminds me of Inspector Ikmen, from the excellent series by Barbara Nadir based in Istanbul. They both possess the patience and general intelligence, plus a certain dogedness, in order to track down their man, amidst the prevailing air of indifference or corruption. Will definitely look for more in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting New Crime Series, 24 May 2016

D.I Kim Stone makes an interesting addition to the list of female police officers available to follow in fiction, of which there are many. Not too hard boiled, she lives with her dog, Barney, and avoids personal relationships where possible. This novel does lead up to an ending which I wasn't expecting following several seemingly unrelated murders with their roots in the past. Must say I am looking forward to following her further adventures, long may she flourish.
