    Excellent read The Percy Peach series never fails to provide an entertaining whodunnit.Missed all the clues this time, but really enjoyed the flow of the book.

    I had read some of the author s books in another series back in the 1990s so I thought I would give this a try I found the writing style ponderous and I kept putting the book down and doing something else rather than get absorbed in the story It is fairly light hearted and Inspector Peach s Superintendent is a comic character but the humour did not work for me As for the plot a career criminal gets murdered and there are two obvious suspects There are also two other characters whose pasts ar I had read some of the author s books in another series back in the 1990s so I thought I would give this a try I found the writing style ponderous and I kept putting the book down and doing something else rather than get absorbed in the story It is fairly light hearted and Inspector Peach s Superintendent is a comic character but the humour did not work for me As for the plot a career criminal gets murdered and there are two obvious suspects There are also two other characters whose pasts are unknown so later on when their pasts are revealed it is no surprise that they also had reasons for wanting the victim dead I doubt I will read any of the other boos in this series

    I actually enjoyed this book, although I probably shouldn t It was a standard Brit mystery old school Percy Peach is a typical lead detective with, of course, an idiot for a boss The plot was simple although suspects abounded I found it relaxing and refreshing after too many brilliant, twisting but exhausting modern day mysteries.

    Police investigate the murder of a known criminal.It was an OK story but a bit repetitive and the characters plot lacked any real depth.My real rating is 2.5.


  7. Laura Laura says:

    Ending a bit abrupt but i love this series especially the way percy talks to bloody tucker


  8. Veronica Veronica says:

    A fast paced shorter novel with good characters and a well thought out plot A fun read.


  9. Violet Violet says:

    I like this one better than the last The banter was not so heavy between Peach and his superior The story was great left us wondering who did it until the end Great reading.
