Reading with no hands!
DI Dickson is a transplanted city detective who heads for the country looking for a change of pace. What should bring a slower, more manageable work load proves anything but. Accompanied by a competent team still trying to decipher this mysterious colleague, and an affable pet named Monty, DI Dickson solves what I hope will be the first two of many cases. Sober, cerebral procedural that plays at just the right speed.
Imagine that you've left behind a profession that could propel your future to unknown heights for a place in a family legacy of public service. Mac Ryan doesn't have to envision that possibility. He's living the reality.
In a tight and matter of fact style, he approaches his first foray into murder. Ably accompanied by a seasoned veteran, he shows a deft technique enhanced by his tendency to map all of the facets, and finds the answer, gets the guilty party and manages to extract himself from a personal entanglement no longer worth his investment.
As the beginning of a new series, this was a compelling tale that whets your appetite and has you glad that you know there will be more!
DI Dixon does it again. With merely a moments notice since his last case, and still not fully recovered from the wounds it inflicted Detective Inspector Dixon is onto a horse mauling that may not be what it seems.
Accompanied by a skeleton crew, he enters the world of racing to find out what's transpired and who's responsible.
Quick and potent like the two before, this thriller plays out interestingly. Unlike the others, there are a few too many characters and a slight implausibility for this reader. Still a worthy listen as Napoleon gives us his oratory best!
