  • Good book, excellent plot. Well set

    A good book to read set back in the late 50s early 60s. Clever plot well thought out and nicely constructed with great depth. Reminds the reader of days gone by when a bottle of lemonade, picnic and a river setting with sime friends was all one needed for some fun. Well researched with only one minir error .... 'Teddy Boys' didn't ride scooters, they were more aligned to the Rockers and Greaser movement who always rode motorbikes. Mods and Skinheads rode scooters ..... Vespas and Lambrettas.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Very good

    A very enjoyable read. Set in the early 60’s it was very nostalgic. Had me guessing right to the end. Going to buy the other two stories in this series.

  • Builds nicely on the first of the series

    Loveday and Ryder ride again. This is the second of the series that I have read, and I really enjoyed it. It built on the first in the series very nicely. I was kept guessing to the end who the perpetrator actually was, and I was kept in the dark until the end, as all good whodunnits should be. The author builds into the period in the early fifties very nicely with some interesting insights into what life was like in England in that period, particularly for budding new policewomen. The area where Trudy is considering learning to drive is very interesting. The story starts with depicting the scene where the incident took place and ends with revisiting the scene and describing what actually took place, all the clues were there if you knew what you were looking for. I was a little surprised when Ryder solved the mystery and there were still a couple of chapters to go but there was a nice sting in the tail that brought the story together – a nice writing style by Faith Martin. I will be hopping straight into the next of the series to see if the male police actually give here a fair go.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Love that series

    Another great instalment in this wonderful series set in beautiful Oxford in the early sixties. This time WPC Loveday teams with Dr. Ryder to investigate the suspicious death of a student. In the course of their investigation, Ryder & Loveday come across a few unsavory characters of the upper class and they discover that the dead man had more enemies than they were led to believe. I love that series because it’s well written and easy to follow the whole cast of characters be they the regulars or specific to the investigation. What irks me a little is the place of women in that era but it’s perfectly counterbalanced by Trudy Loveday’s ambitions. There’s a touch o humour and not too many gory details thus making this series easy to read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
