The series with Bertie is unusual and to enjoy the book you have to accept the idea that the detective is the Prince of Wales. This does give an unusual view of the world and gives added interest to the story. The story is not over complex and I think most readers of crime mysteries will get close to the solution near the end. I like the style because it paints a good picture of the characters and setting, without spending excessive time away from the plot as many novels set in Victorian times do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, cheap Kindle, 19 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed the story and the pace was good. For my taste there a bit too much muscle compared to intellect. I was also not very enamoured of the American/Irish back story. These are minor quips and I did enjoy the book, although will probably not read the rest of the series. Kindle book very cheap.Quinn Checks In (Liam Quinn Mysteries Book 1)

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual Story and a Good Read, 19 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always enjoyed Peter Lovesey books. He is great on interesting stories and often shows the humorous side of characters. This book is 27th in the "The Top 100 Crime Novels of All Time" by CWA (who award the daggers). The story is unusual and the characters are interesting, because they develop alongside the plot. This is just a good read and the Kindle book is good value.The False Inspector Dew

I have bought these before and very happy with them. The socks are soft and comfortable and the soft grip is the best I have used by far. At this price a real bargain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very old but great value, 6 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a massive amount of material for the price. I was interested in the "Four Just Men Stories", which are in a very dated style but still a good read. It was reading secondhand Edgar Wallace paperbacks that got me into crime thrillers when I was a teenager and they were a gripping read. I think you have to remember these stories were written a very long time ago - if that is OK, then these will be a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works fine and much cheaper than most UK shops, 24 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works fine and much cheaper than most UK shops. My last one just packed up - possibly the small connector. This one seems fine. My last one was wonderful at avoiding jams and giving advice about slow traffic. Saved me many hours of problems when touring Germany last year, including a 30km stationery jam on a motorway. Only snag was other drivers had it fitted so was in the middle of lots of lorries going through small back turnings. Great for warning of road works on dual carriageways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfied, 24 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am undergoing chemotherapy and need to check my temperature often and accurately. Most ear devices are for babies and this gives an adult reading (although you have to choose this each time). I searched a lot of reviews and Braun comes out tops for accuracy. So far has been excellent. Easy to use and reliable. I bought a bulk pack of filters from Amazon which makes them 5p a go, which is OK - not sure you cannot reuse them if careful.
