  • Our Man In Havana

    Ah, the perverted joys of the Cold War! Flaxborough has a spy in its midst--but he's disappeared, along with his landlord. With exceptionally clever, dry wit, various characters are nicely put in place with aptly malicious assassination (of both character and characters?) and deliciously wicked turns of phrase. And amidst all this description the wonderful plot winds sinuously (or is that Ross?) to its conclusion. Laugh-out-loud funny!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Good for fans of British Golden Age mysteries

    Droll rather than humorous, Hopjoy was Here is definitely different from the standard English village cozy. Inspector Purbright receives an anonymous letter from a neighbor of the male roommates Hopjoy and Periam about a fight in a bathroom. Hopjoy is working for a mysterious (CIAesque) agency. Was Hopjoy or Periam murdered using acid in their own bathtub? Unusual murder method, spies, formal British language, and passé humor, the book is not for everyone. The village characters are the best part. Difficult to rate but 3 stars--onto the next in the series. Thanks to Farrago and NetGalley for a copy.

  • Great fun

    Completely silly and great fun. Light mystery reading that makes fun of the classic British post war crime novel.

  • Humorous and clever

    Well written delight: irony with tongue firmly in cheek.
