2.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your cash, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite many negative reviews, I found all were picky and found none of the faults mentioned. However, I did find one major fault. This item takes very good still pictures, great quality, but when it come to video, I just can't get it to take any. Given the price and that I ignored the negative reviews it's my own fault I suppose. What can one expect for a rubbish price? Rubbish of course :-(

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Tense Thriller From The Master, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once again Tom Thorne comes face to face with his nemesis Stuart Nicklin. Persuaded by his bosses, with promises of a return to his former rank he reluctantly agrees to meets the demands of Nicklin in order to 'clear up' another murder the killer has confessed to. Master manipulator Nicklin has Thorne jumping through hoops and escorting him and a fellow inmate to a lonely island off the coast of Wales where Nicklin spent some time in a Youth Offenders Institution in his early days, an island cut off in many ways from civilisation. The irksome task becomes more complicated and the pen of Mark Billingham takes us deeper into the darkness that is Stuart Nicklin, and the vulnerabilities of Tom Thorne. Even though the reader can have some inkling of the whys and wherefores of the plot, knowing the history of these two, the how, when and the depth of Nicklin's cunning comes in a series of surprises. I feel the master is keeping more revelations in this relationship for further reading. I'll be looking forward to it

A Dark and Twisted Tide: Lacey Flint Series, Book 4
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Still On TOP Form, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lacy Flint is back I'm glad to say, and back in uniform with the river police. She still pines for Joesbury and is still the maverick, once again putting herself in the danger zone. This book is the most chilling yet and, as usual, Sharon Bolton leaves the big surprises to the end, treating the reader to some spine chilling drama and hold their breath expecting the next moment to be Lacy's last. The supporting characters seem so real the reader feels they've actually met them and left me at least eager to know more about their lives while at the same time wondering which one needs to be watched closer than any other. The setting this grim tale is set in must have involved a lot of research being in a place the public rarely have access to. Sharon, you just get better with each book. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The streets of Manchester can be tough - even for a DCI, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Life is dangerous for girls in the vice game in Manchester and when one is found dead behind the Midland Hotel DCI Kate Simms is reluctantly given the case. Already under a shadow, made even darker by the appointment of her old boss to the ACC of GMP. Under pressure she contacts an old friend in forensics, Nick Fennimore, who has already been implicated in the illegal use of police resources which resulted in Kate's damaged prospects. Her bosses want the case to be solved, killer brought to justice and case closed quickly. However, Nick's findings point to this being a far more important and complicated case than was first realised, a case that would put her and her children in personal danger. A well written tale that brings the concept of costs being more important than justice, particularly when the victim is not considered 'high profile' enough. The hurdles that are put in Kate's way has the reader as frustrated yet determined as Kate and Nick are to bring justice to the fore.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't want to put this down!, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Darkness Falls (Kindle Edition)
Pippa 9 year old daughter of Clara and Hugo Pascal insists she wants her always too busy mother, a barrister, to take her to school instead of her babysitter Trish. What happens outside the school that day will change the family's life forever and give DI Steve Lawson and DS Barton their most puzzling case yet. Margaret Murphy gives the reader one of the most disturbing insights into the mind of a serial killer that I've ever read and keeps the reader waiting with bated breath to discover an end which seems destined for doom. The suspense is kept up until the very end of this top-class thriller. Don't let this one pass you by.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely A Winner, 4 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edge of Arcadia (Kindle Edition)
I must start be confessing that my favourite reading is crime fiction, and this book certainly isn't of that genre. This is romance, something no longer in my life, however, it is about an artist and I am interested in art and artists, so please bear with me. Aidan Hamilton a tutor in art reaches middle-age and the realisation that life has passed him by. So taken up with art, college administration and his marriage problems he yearns for something else, and Louise DeGrey, one of his more mature students, seems an obvious choice. Unlike his wife Cathy Louise shares his interest in art, particularly in the artist Nicolas Poussin. Life with Cathy and his children, Dora and Bobby, isn't going well, with discord between Cathy and Bobby. The reader soon comes to the realisation that this character is a rather weak man, constantly stepping back from confrontation in his marriage and to some degree in his career. Aidan has reached that place we call 'middle-age crisis', and true to form falls in love, embarking on a somewhat dangerous, certainly career-wise, liaison with his student. This story has all the essentials of an autobiographical novel as the reader is regularly taken back in the character's memory as he relives his past failures, his mistakes and his desires. At first I was a little irritated by this style, particularly with him being such an indecisive person, however, that was my failing, and I was soon reminded of a great book I read some years ago, 'The Steep Approach to Garbadale' by Iain Banks, a book I had been delighted with. I was also reminded of a late good friend and artist of mine, Jim, better known as Lawrence Isherwood, himself being so similar in character to Aidan. Without virtually giving the plot, for want of a better word, away, I can but say that this is a first novel, by an artist and stands on a par, or maybe better, than the aforementioned novel. Well done is all I want to add, read and enjoy. One little thing I can add. I'm something of a pedant and do regularly become irritated by incorrect spelling and/or grammar in Kindle downloads. Throughout this book I could find only one error, and that a minor one. So, other authors beware, I may not let you off in future. Get your editing up to scratch. This one is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is the Humour Criminal? Very creative and funny, 26 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Andy Rivers has really done well to put himself in the mind of this character, a deluded simpleton who's somehow bumbled his way through life unaware of how others use callously him for their own ends. The reader is dragged along in the tragic humour of the situation, not knowing whether to laugh at or cry for the man. Well worth the read.

Once again the pipe-smoking granny is on a search for the truth after a 'Save our frogs' activist is found very dead, and yet again she leaves no stone unturned, and of course upsets the local constabulary. A great fun read.
