4.0 out of 5 stars Convincing intrigue set at the European crossroads of finance and politics, 20 April 2016
Pembrey has captured the banality and permanent sense of low level paranoia that is part of the expat experience. He has mixed in the febrile atmosphere that engulfs a company in merger mode to create the narrative drive for his story. He gives an accurate feel of what it is like for an Ambler-esque middle-manager, whose bosses ensure he works on a need to know basis, ensuring that he blunders onward inn a combination of logical deduction and following hunches that may or may not be based on the true underlying facts, never knowing who are his friends and who his enemies.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Third Phineas Finn novel at last, 17 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Phineas at Bay (Paperback)
Is this a worthy continuation of Trollope’s political novels? Does it provide Phineas with the third outing which many believe his character calls out for? I think the answer to both questions is “yes”. Wirenius has done his research on the issues which his book touches upon and his understanding of the characters he has borrowed from Trollope (I cannot speak to the borrowings from other writers which also feature as amusing asides) is evident. He has, therefore, satisfied my test of a continuation novelist of paying sufficient respect to his original source. And he has produced a story which moves quickly, more quickly than Trollope might have had it, and entertains. His writing style is clearly modern and if at times he attributes to his hero slightly anachronistic views that are ahead of his time (and out of sync with what Trollope might have given him), then I, for one, most definitely can forgive him

3.0 out of 5 stars Value for money but buy a size bigger than you normally would, 7 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Decent quality but a bit on the small side of my usual size. Suggest you buy the size up from the one you would normally select. Not as much support for the arch of the foot as you get from more expensive trainers. But good value for money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Irritating sexist rubbish underpins the whole thing, 15 Sept. 2014
Am I the only person who finds it offensive that a central female character's theory about what is behind the events they are investigating (a couple struggling to conceive, she thinks) is patronisingly dismissed by her two male fellow investigators on the grounds that she's projecting because she can't conceive herself. Then, to make matters worse, it turns out they are right to have dismissed her theory as irrelevant and she gets to eat dollops of humble pie and apologise to them both at the end for messing them around and wasting their time?

If a male author had written this it would have been dismissed as crass sexism. In a woman author I regard it as a betrayal of her sex. What? A woman's brain goes to mush because she can only think about having babies?

4.0 out of 5 stars well researched murder story, 6 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Set in the Dordogne and devoting time to creating a fond image of the area this novel combines thorough research of the back story of wartime Vichy France with a clear affection for the place now. The eponymous detective is a decent ordinary man with whom you feel you could share a bottle of wine and a good meal.

Lots of programmes. It is very quiet - I can run it at night and not hear it even though it is less than 25ft from my bed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Now I can sound like Hank, 27 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Would have rated it 5 stars but although it often has the second guitar parts (eg for Apache) this is not always the case, so not a full score to reproduce all the parts the Shads played.
