The Spy's Daughter (Philip Mangan 3)
The Spy's Daughter (Philip Mangan 3)
by Adam Brookes
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.55

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all fans of literate,well plotted spy novels., 4 Aug. 2017
A truly memorable spy novel;compelling and utterly plausible;refreshingly free of the gore,sadism and endless sexual shenanigans which seem to be obligatory in so much modern writing.
I found the struggles of the central character-the spy's daughter-to be entirely convincing and very moving.
The background detail is vivid and evocative;food; climate; seedy hotel and motel rooms;the humidity and intense heat of the tropics;the noisy brutality of modern Beijing.
Highly recommended.

This review is from: Arsenicum 30c (Personal Care)
The dispenser broke after 2 days' use. Disappointing. Since homoeopathic remedies are not toxic, why not use a simple pill bottle, as with vitamins for example?

5.0 out of 5 stars A mouse amongst mice., 30 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Congratulations to logitech.This is,without doubt,the best mouse I have ever used : it has given new life to my elderly Dell Inspiron, now 8 years old and still going strong,thanks to new SSD and recent MOT.
I recommend it to all who still prefer the improved control provided by a good quality mouse.
It sits pleasantly under the hand and for the price it cannot be faulted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Capital Punishment On Trial, 14 April 2017
A compelling,well directed and memorable exploration of the mechanics and corrupting consequences of capital punishment.
Excellent script, tremendous cast-Andrea Risborough,Steve Coogan and Garion Dowds -are exceptional,as are the scenes,the supporting cast and the script.
A truly moving film and one of the best I have seen recently.
No frills,no attempts at sentimentality and unsparing in its depiction of a supposedly humane method of execution.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Moving Story Of An Ordinary Couple Who Defied Hitler., 13 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather good: having read the book-unforgettable- and read the reviews of the new production with Emma Thompson,I found this older version here on Amazon.
It spares the viewer much of the distressing detail found in the book,and is convincing, moving and well made.
I recommend it to all who share my interest in the incredible courage-sometimes borne of despair and grief-which marked the German resistance: the Widerstand.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing ,Predictable and Implausible., 13 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fortitude (DVD)
Awful: clunky script,the usual predictable melange of athletic sexual encounters,gore, implausible story line, violence and plenty of vomiting: what is this fixation that so many directors/producers now have with close up shots of impromptu vomiting?
I gave up at the start of the second episode.
A waste of a good cast.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Forgotten Masterpiece, 9 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
That this film sank from view is hard to understand;everything about it is outstanding: the direction,the script,the simple black and white photography,the design and ,not least, a memorable performance from the late Diana Dors as the doomed Mrs Hilton.
I always had a soft spot for Diana Dors,who struck me as a woman of courage,intelligence and honesty,despite her brassy bombshell image.
This film shows her talent at its best.
An overlooked British gem from the 1950s,with a very powerful message.
Let's hope that the death penalty is never restored.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great purchase, 31 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terrific value and so glad I found them: Sloggis are overpriced and no longer fit comfortably,whereas these fit perfectly,do not show under trousers,and are light, and easy to wash.
Recommended for all those like me,who loathe thongs,brazilians,cut aways,tangas,and all the other fashionable, excruciatingly unsuitable knickers which we are supposed to choose nowadays.
Much better than the Whisper briefs.
