Another gem from Mike Pannett
on 22 July 2012
I'd been eagerly awaiting the kindle release of Up Beat and Down Dale and it didn't disappoint.
I've thoroughly enjoyed all Mikes books. He has a lovely way with words and is able to craft a story in a way that engages you from the start. Nice to see the return of Soapy,Algy,Walt et al along with the tales of the criminal goings on in North Yorkshire.it's not all about criminals though with some lovely tales of missing people found and of his colleagues, career progression and the lovely wife who keeps him in his rightful pace.
With an easy wit, and a very human side to him Mike is just the sort of copper you'd like helping you, unless you're a criminal of course and it would no doubt be no more Mr Nice Guy. The story was left with an open ended feel so hopefully there will one day be more tales from him, I'm sure he has lots more of interest to tell us.
My only disappointment is that I was so engrossed that I read it quickly! Only just published and I want to know when the next one will be out!!!!
