    Extraordinary author

    Peter May continues to captivate his readers and get their investigative juices flowing. Another excellent read while waiting for his next publication to appear.

    Enjoyed it!

    A good friend recommended Peter May to me when I was looking for mystery writers to add to my 'to read' list. I picked up a couple and this is the one I decided to read first. Out of all of his books, I picked this one because I liked the idea of a Scots-Italian hero in his early 50s with a pony tail. *LOL* Seriously! Enzo Macleod. I enjoyed the book for the most part. I'm not totally enamoured of the afore-mentioned Enzo, but I suspect he will grow on me. I honestly didn't like him at first, but by the end of the book he had improved muchly in my eyes. :) He has issues and he's a bit of a misogynist. He - or maybe it's just the author - has a fixation on boobs. If I had to hear about his student/assistant's bouncy bosom one more time, I think I'd have screamed. *LOL* There is also a subplot concerning his two daughters - half sisters - that I found interesting and I hope it continues on in the series. Pretty sure that it will. The mystery itself, the years past disappearance turned into years past murder of a brilliant French teacher at one of France's elite centres of higher education, wasn't that twisty turny, but it did keep me guessing until nearly the end. I liked that it was much of a puzzle and involved a lot of give and take between Enzo and the secondary cast in brainstorming sessions. There was a lot of description going on - scene setting and location picturing - and I've come to think that this might be a hallmark of Brit-authored police procedurals/suspense novels. It might turn some folk off, but it sure gave me a detailed mind-image of many of the mystery's locations throughout France. There were a couple of threads I thought were left dangling, but maybe they'll get picked up in the next Enzo File - or maybe they really are just coincidences, indicated a rising level of Enzo's paranoia as the story went on. To be determined, as they say! So, while not perfect, Extraordinary People was quite enjoyable and I'll indeed read more. :)
