    highly recommended

    I'm happy I got this ARC because I discovered a new to me humorous and entertaining series. Dover is the perfect anti-hero, he will make you laugh and you end loving him for all his imperfections. The story is engrossing and entertaining, it aged well and it's an interesting depiction of an era. I loved the quirky cast of characters and the plot. Looking forward to reading the next instalment, it's highly recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Dover One

    The detective was unappealing and the book was neither very amusing nor very clever. Disappointing. I won't be reading more in this series.

    dover one

    Full of antisemitic remarks in the first chapters of this book. They don't add anything and are very tasteless. Shame on you, Joyce.

    Hilarious British police procedural

    *3.5 stars rounded up. An oldie but a goodie: a British police procedural which first appeared in 1964, being offered once again by Farrago Press. It features the irascible Chief Inspector Wilfred Dover of Scotland Yard. In this first book in the series, Dover and Sergeant Charles MacGregor are assigned to investigate the disappearance of a young woman who is the companion of an elderly man in Creedon. Was she kidnapped or murdered? Without a corpus delicti, what do Dover and MacGregor have to go on but interview after interview, making Dover even grumpier. I thought the characters in the story were hilarious; the mystery, intriguing. I did guess the 'who' but not 'how' or 'why'. I'm not even sure the police can agree on that last one. Ok, it's somewhat dated, but still a gem of a mystery. I would like to read more of this series, if only to see if poor Sergeant MacGregor ever gets out from under the thumb of Dover. Many thanks to Pete at Farrago Books for offering me a copy of the book via NetGalley. I think I enjoyed this one even more than the Colin Watson's Flaxborough series you lead me to read, Pete! Very enjoyable!
