It does need to be said firstly that this book was written back in and therefore did have a certain element of feeling a little dated. That is not a criticism however as I suspect the same could be said of a lot of books. It started well, the story was interesting and it picked up pace pretty quickly. I thought it was amusing in parts, and some of the more outlandish ways to commit crime did amuse me — especially when a pet crocodile appeared.
I felt the book was a bit long though. That did make for a nice change though, and I enjoyed the lighthearted aspect of the novel. One slight criticism is that I felt some of the relationships seemed a bit odd.

I read the book believing that Brian Keyes was a middle aged, balding old man, however further into the book he has a relationship with a young beauty queen. Either I was wrong in my assumption, or it was a bad bit of writing. Tagged as ben elton , carl hiaasen , florida , red dwarf , rimmer , tourist season , york. Last weekend was a total washout weather wise. Half of York was underwater, roads were flooded and the garden was a soggy mess.
It was a good weekend to be a duck. It was also good weekend to stay indoors and read if you ask me. However this weekend the parents were visiting, so rather than stay indoors we braved the elements and took a trip over to Knaresborough and Harrogate. Both of these are lovely places. This is not so much fun however, in gale force winds, temperatures that penguins would moan about and sheeting rain. This was also the weekend for the Harrogate Flower Show.
Whilst a bit of mud never hurt anyone, I went on the Thursday and you needed your wellies. By Sunday I imagine even pigs would have been calling for their sties to be on stilts. Because the plot isn't the primary focus, it isn't all that great. There are a couple of holes, some sidetracks, and more than one deus ex machina.www.redesignmyresume.com/includes/oh/best-gay-dating-apps-for-iphone.php
The Baedeker Murders
The character studies and descriptions of York both then and now are the real gems. We see the cast not as people who are perfect, but who are sometimes a bit inadequate because they're not thinking properly or because they're stuck in their own personal c This is an interesting novel in that the plot comes secondary to the character studies in it.
We see the cast not as people who are perfect, but who are sometimes a bit inadequate because they're not thinking properly or because they're stuck in their own personal crises. We see the mother trying desperately to keep a household functioning without enough money, while the mother has all the money and modern conveniences she needs. What do they have in common?
Swish (The Riley Brothers Book 3)
A husband and father who is barely around. Some things haven't changed in years. Then we've got estranged brothers and married couples who barely speak, and who are trying to get through the awkwardness of putting on a good front. There are two negatives to this book.
The first is the seeming ineptness of the York police. They miss things, simple things. I'm sure they're not this bad in real life. The second is the crudeness that permeates. The language is one thing, but what happens to the girl is disturbing especially given the circumstances of it.

Oh yeah, I got through this in a couple of hours. It really isn't that much of a deep read. Jun 23, Armelle rated it liked it. In modern day York, two brothers, one a bitter, sad high-ranking cop, the other a newly minted private eye, become enmeshed in the three cases - each one involving a little girl. One of little girls died over a century ago, but her death echoes down the years. I don't usually read thrillers, and I didn't love this one, but I wanted to find out what happened, so I kept going.
Few of the characters are particularly likable, and the descriptions of nearly every thing are rather - smelly.

I probably won't look for the next book in the series, and I can't really recommend this one, but it was okay in the end.

The Author melds two stories together of two little girls that are years apart. Would have been a better book without the two brothers' drama. Very much enjoyed the bits about York, England where the story takes place. Aug 28, Muriel rated it really liked it. This was like reading two stories in one. Aug 09, Sharon Davies rated it liked it.
Sad, but interesting history. Jul 27, Scotchneat rated it it was ok Shelves: This was kind of a weird one. A cop who left the job after the death of a young girl at the hands of her father returns home after 10 years abroad, and takes up a private detective practice. His brother, meanwhile, is now the policy chief.
Then a little rich girl gets kidnapped and both of them are caught up in trying to find her. Interwoven with this is the story of a young girl at the turn of the century who is struggling to survive in the town's slums. Definitely a dark novel, told from differe This was kind of a weird one. Definitely a dark novel, told from different perspectives, including the kidnapper's. I think the biggest indictment against it is that the voice doesn't change with the various narrators, and it's a bit pedantic to boot.
