4.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Contrast, 18 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an enjoyable and competent inter-war detective story by an author I had never come across before. Thomson concentrates on police methods and procedures and (in this book at least) on the lives of fairly ordinary people - which is a contrast to some of the better-known names of the period who built their narratives around heroic amateurs and set the stories among the upper middle class (and upward).

3.0 out of 5 stars A period piece, 24 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Annie Haynes is an interesting writer. Though promoted (now) as a Golden Age writer, her books have quite a Victorian feel about them, this one in particular. 'The Witness on the Roof' has something of the character of Wilkie Collins meets Agatha Christie, with a touch of Mills & Boon. But if that's what you're looking for, you will enjoy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars FWC at his best, 9 April 2016
I have read several of Croft's bpoks & would rate this as the best so far. The chararacters (key ones viewed 'from the inside ') are very credfible, & the narrative structure is imaginative. Perhaps not everyone would enjoy the conclusion as much as I did … but the moral & spiritual theme gave added depth to the whole thing.

These are the best mats that I've found to take with you on a walk and allow you to stop and sit just about anywhere no matter how wet or uneven the ground is.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an enjoyable mystery by a 'new' author (or, at least, long-forgotten).
The atmosphere of the book combines 1920's references (to clothes, fashions, social habits) with a plot and action which often has a rather melodramatic Victorian atmosphere. Not surprising given the span of the author's life.
One can see why Agatha Christie has remained in print while Annie Haynes dropped out, but a worthwhile read nonetheless.

A small, neat bell with a pleasant old-fashioned sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining inter-war mystery, 10 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Light-hearted derring-do at a mysterious house in Cornwall. I have read a couple of Clara Benson's books and thought this one (despite its stereotyped setting, was actually more accomplished in terms of plotting and character than the earlier ones.
I have always harboured a suspicion that Clara Benson is in fact the pseudonym of someone writing today and posing as an author of the 1920's and 30's. But I haven't spotted any anachronisms of either fact or attitude, so my confidence is growing that these books are what they claim to be.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An intelligent and articulate critique of the left (broadly speaking) in contemporary politics and culture, especially of the use of legislation to engineer society. This, combined with with a thoughtful explanation of the value and importance of conserving what we have in society and of recognising tradition as the accumulated wisdom of those who have gone before us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catechism for the 21st century, 9 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has taken the ancient concept of the Catechism and rewritten it for the 21stC. The editorial team has put together a Catechism with great potential as a teaching framework. It is clear on essentials and gracious on contentious matters. Highly recommended.
