  • Different and quirky!

    Having devoured this author's 'archaeological' thriller 'The Trespass' (although I'm not sure that there was much archaeology involved but anyway ...) I took a chance on this novel, a detective story set in England in a very unusual setting. I'm not a huge fan of detective fiction but this one had an intriguing premise so I gave it a shot and I'm very pleased that I did. Quirky, interesting and unusual is one way of describing it. I won't give the plot away but it involves a monastery, murder and bad weather ... the protagonist, DCI Moran, is a likeable but jaded character I really warmed to after the first thirty or so pages. There's also a very good twist to this story, and I love twists! My only criticism is I'd have liked the book to have been a little longer but now I'm being picky. Overall, very enjoyable.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Black December fell short

    I really wanted to like this book, but in the end it was just a bit too unrealistic for my tastes. You need a scorecard to keep up with all the victims and the multiple killers.

  • Black December

    As someone with extensive medical experience, I couldn't quite accept the symptoms displayed by Brendan Moran. A bit of a "stretch" but otherwise, the characters on the whole were adequately defined. Senior police in management are not portrayed glowingly. Changes in hierarchy come as a result of unexpected death or outright corruption, esp in subsequent episodes.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Good book

    Fast paced, kept me turning pages. Characters were believable. The description of the abbey and the llfe of the monks was very accurate.

  • Black December

    I have been reading the series backwards. But it was still easy to understand the story lines and the characters. Can not wait for the next book in the series.
