    I really like this series but sometimes there s a little too much of the jargon of the time Jack Haldean is asked by the elderly owner of Hunt Coffee Limited to find his nephew who has apparently disappeared off the face of the earth Jack holds out little hope of finding the young man after 4 months After checking with his policeman friend and finding the original investigation was definitely lacking in much substance it becomes a challenge In my arrogance I thought I knew who the killer was I really like this series but sometimes there s a little too much of the jargon of the time Jack Haldean is asked by the elderly owner of Hunt Coffee Limited to find his nephew who has apparently disappeared off the face of the earth Jack holds out little hope of finding the young man after 4 months After checking with his policeman friend and finding the original investigation was definitely lacking in much substance it becomes a challenge In my arrogance I thought I knew who the killer was before the end Imagine my surprise

    I really like the characters in this series of book s which are set in the period between the wars There were a couple of shocks along the way with this one, but the outcome is always quite satisfying.


  4. Frances Frances says:

    I found this a bit slow moving and complicated in places but it was still enjoyable and I would read others in the series Good cosy crime set between the wars with a good feel for the time and relatable characters.

    Mark Helston disappeared one cold January night, and the police have not found him, nor explained to his family what might have happened to him So his autocratic great uncle asks Jack Haldean, author and amateur sleuth, to find the young man Then Haldean discovers that another man is missing, too The 1930 s is a perfect time period for the twisty plot, which depends in part on uncertain identifications and slow communication systems.
