Review: The seventh book in a very good series. In 1956 Donald Langham and his wife Maria are looking to move from London to Suffolk. They get involved in attending a death in deepest Essex. Seven invites and as some of them are murdered, Donald has his work cut out keeping Maria alive. Very enjoyable a good historical thriller. Donald and Maria are complemented by Donald's partner in their investigative practice - Ralph Ryland and the third member of the team Pamela Baker. Their friend detective inspector Jeff Mallory gives support. One of my favourite authors I thoroughly recommend this book. Thanks to the Publisher Severn House and Netgalley for my kindle download.

Review: This is the seventh in the mystery series featuring crime writer, and private detective, Donald Langham and his literary agent wife, Maria Dupre. The series is set in 1950’s London, although Donald and Maria have been thinking of moving to the country. However, before they can make their arrangements to leave for a country cottage, Maria receives a card inviting her to witness a death…. This intriguing card comes from reclusive artist, Maxwell Falwell Fenton, who Maria knew as a young girl. The opening reminded me slightly of, “A Murder is Announced,” as a group of people are invited to Fenton’s country house, Winterfield, and, of course, before long, there is indeed a death. However, Fenton has accused of all those invited of injuring him in some way and, when the guests begin to die, it is up to Donald to solve the murder and protect Maria from harm. I enjoy this series very much. I like the characters, the period feel and the plot was interesting, with a good number of suspects. I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, for review.

  • Waterstones Where Do Numbers Come From

    Price: £36.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Why do we need the real numbers? How should we construct them? These questions arose in the nineteenth century, along with the ideas and techniques needed to address them. Nowadays it is commonplace for apprentice mathematicians to hear 'we shall assume the standard properties of the real numbers' as part of their training. But exactly what are those properties? And why can we assume them? This book is clearly and entertainingly written for those students, with historical asides and exercises to foster understanding. Starting with the natural (counting) numbers and then looking at the rational numbers (fractions) and negative numbers, the author builds to a careful construction of the real numbers followed by the complex numbers, leaving the reader fully equipped with all the number systems required by modern mathematical analysis. Additional chapters on polynomials and quarternions provide further context for any reader wanting to delve deeper.

  • Waterstones The Number Bias

    Price: £9.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Even if you don't consider yourself a numbers person, you are a numbers person. The time has come to put numbers in their place. Not high up on a pedestal, or out on the curb, but right where they belong: beside words. It is not an overstatement to say that numbers dictate the way we live our lives. They tell us how we're doing at school, how much we weigh, who might win an election and whether the economy is booming. But numbers aren't as objective as they may seem; behind every number is a story. Yet politicians, businesses and the media often forget this - or use it for their own gain. Sanne Blauw travels the world to unpick our relationship with numbers and demystify our misguided allegiance, from Florence Nightingale using statistics to petition for better conditions during the Crimean War to the manipulation of numbers by the American tobacco industry and the ambiguous figures peddled during the EU referendum. Taking us from the everyday numbers that govern our health and wellbeing to the statistics used to wield enormous power and influence, The Number Bias counsels us to think more wisely.
