Review: This is another story that shows its vintage in places but it is well written and kept me intrigued - and I didn't see the twist coming at the end.

Review: this is an excercise in authour in guise of the protagonist looking brilliant. Unfortunately to acheive that he has to come up with an ingenious plot and that has not happened. This man has had a idea about a body in a basement and refused to give up on it no matter how ridiculous the plot has become. It depends on the victim having stolen a yale key to the house from a bag 3 years previously, still having the key and taking the murderer there. He is able to come armed with a suitcase full of sand and cement in order to bury her in the cellar, though how anyone knew there was a cellar is not explained. The protagonist makes a deal with the prime suspect not to unveil the real killer because the victim deserved to be murdered. The victim being a girl who has been blackmailed into a sexual reltionship and become pregnant as a result and tried to get the father to take financial responsibilty . dreadful book

  • Waterstones Long Live the King

    Price: £12.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Edward II's murder at Berkeley Castle in 1327 is one of the most famous and lurid tales in all of English history. But is it true? For over five centuries, few people questioned it, but with the discovery in a Montpellier archive of a remarkable document, an alternative narrative has presented itself: that Edward escaped from Berkeley Castle and made his way to an Italian hermitage. In Long Live the King, medieval historian Kathryn Warner explores in detail Edward's downfall and forced abdication in 1326/27, the role possibly played by his wife Isabella of France, the wide variation in chronicle accounts of his murder at Berkeley Castle and the fascinating possibility that Edward lived on in Italy for many years after his official funeral was held in Gloucester in December 1327.

  • Waterstones Six Against the Yard

    Price: £9.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: A unique anthology for crime aficionados - six 'perfect murder' stories written by the most accomplished crime writers of the 1930s, designed to fox real-life Scotland Yard Superintendent Cornish, who comments on whether or not these crimes could have genuinely been solved. Is the 'perfect murder' possible? Can that crime be committed with such consummate care, with such exacting skill, that it is unsolvable - even to the most astute investigator? In this unique collection, legendary crime writers Margery Allingham, Anthony Berkeley, Freeman Wills Crofts, Ronald Knox, Dorothy L. Sayers and Russell Thorndike each attempt to create the unsolvable murder, which Superintendent Cornish of the CID then attempts to unravel. This clever literary battle of wits from the archives of the Detection Club follows The Floating Admiral and Ask a Policeman back into print after more than 75 years, and shows some of the experts from the Golden Age of detective fiction at their most ingenious.
