The Ampersand Papers: An Inspector Appleby Mystery | [Michael Innes]

The Ampersand Papers: An Inspector Appleby Mystery

While Appleby is strolling along a Cornish beach, he narrowly escapes being struck by a body falling down a cliff. The body is that of Dr Sutch, an archivist, and he has fallen from the North Tower of Treskinnick Castle, home of Lord Ampersand. Two possible motivations present themselves to Appleby - the Ampersand gold, treasure from an Armada galleon; and the Ampersand papers, valuable family documents that have associations with Wordsworth and Shelley.

    "Summary SOUNDED like it would be good"

    I just couldn't get into listening to this book. It was slow, nothing building or anything to pique my interest. That said, everyone's taste differs.

    "An amuzing period detective story"

    I picked this book from a selection offered some weeks ago. I enjoy detective stories from Sherlock Holmes to Rebus and also Scandinavian authors. I had not heard of nor read any of Michael Innes books but will read others. This was a lighter read than some of the otther authors but that does not detract from my enjoyment of it. The characters from Appleby to the family paint a great picture of a lost era - the story is in the tradition of Conan Doyle. Matt Addis draws each of the characters well.

    "Not great."

    Slow to start, the plot is uninteresting. There is little explanation of events and the ending makes me feel I wasted five hours of my life. It could be my taste in books but compared to others in the genre, it is quite a poor effort.
