    Cold-blooded murder just isn't Thomas Lang's cup of tea. Offered a bundle to assassinate an American industrialist, he opts to warn the intended victim instead - a good deed that soon takes a bad turn. Quicker than he can down a shot of his favorite whiskey, Lang is bashing heads with a Buddha statue, matching wits with evil billionaires, and putting his life (among other things) in the hands of a bevy of femme fatales. Up against rogue CIA agents, wannabe terrorists, and an arms dealer looking to make a high-tech killing, Lang's out to save the leggy lady he has come to love...and prevent an international bloodbath to boot.

    Good entertainment. An interesting story with intrigue and surprising twists. Characters are enjoyable and engaging. I bought this out of curiosity and found myself rapidly drawn into what is a really good story. As always, Simon Prebble is among the best of narrators.

    It is 1803, six years since Elizabeth and Darcy embarked on their life together at Pemberley, Darcy’s magnificent estate. Their peaceful, orderly world seems almost unassailable. Elizabeth has found her footing as the chatelaine of the great house. They have two fine sons, Fitzwilliam and Charles. Elizabeth’s sister Jane and her husband, Bingley, live nearby; her father visits often; there is optimistic talk about the prospects of marriage for Darcy’s sister Georgiana. And preparations are under way for their much-anticipated annual autumn ball.

    Story

    I LOVE P.D. James' Adam Dalgleish stories. I have read and reread them all. I am also a Jane Austen fan. This, however, does credit to neither the author nor to Austen's characters. Boring is the nicest thing I can say about this. Stick to James' Dalgleish novels which are amazing and to the real Jane Austen stories, which are, of course, classic!

    It's Easter in Reading, a bad time for eggs, and no one can remember the last sunny day. Ovoid D-class nursery celebrity Humpty Stuyvesant Van Dumpty III, minor baronet, ex-convict, and former millionaire philanthropist, is found shattered to death beneath a wall in a shabby area of town. All the evidence points to his ex-wife, who has conveniently shot herself.

    Story

    Jasper Fforde doesn't miss any details in this cleverly conceived and presented detective mystery. The premise is wonderful and presented so smoothly that you forget to spend any time at all considering it silly or contrived. He does not simply leave you enjoying his wit and imagination, however, since he weaves all this into a very good mystery story with plenty of twists and turns. The narration is, of course, classic Simon Prebble and therefore practically perfect.
