The second in the DI John Spicer novels, and another re-read, now I can move on the the next four novels which I have but haven’t read yet.
I’ve spent so much time reading this year I’ve caught up with many of the serial characters I have been reading, hence the last few re-reads. I’m now in a position to go back to where I’ve halted in olders series and bring myself up to date there too.
I’d forgotten how much I get confused by the chronology of this book. It’s good though, with a great plot, and is a fantastic introduction to DI John Spicer.
I love all the books in the HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy trilogy of five, and could read them over and over again. They don’t make sense, and yet they do at the same time. I think the books were best summed up in the forward to this book, as written by original python Terry Jones.
“Welcome to Douglas Adams’s Rollercoaster of Ideas.”
I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve read this iconic book in my lifetime.
First discovered by me, around a quarter of a century ago, I’ve loved it since the moment I finished chapter one. There is really nothing I can say about this book that hasn’t already been said, other than if you haven’t read it, you should.
You know when you’re half way through a book, and are committed to finishing it when you realise “I’ve read this before,”? Yeah, that.
