Journal Entry 1 by wingeponine38wing from Winchester, Massachusetts USA on Monday, February 23, 2015

8 out of 10

Received from PaperBackSwap to read before the Oxford convention.
Different cover.

Back cover:
A bus tour of Yorkshire's quaint villages doesn't top Ben Hammond's list of great adventures for the newly retired. Especially with his wife, Rosa, and his ex-cop sister-in-law, Anna, leading the way. However, Ben's interest is piqued when he spots a familiar face on the coach: Miss McGuire, his former math teacher. But before he can reacquaint himself with the little old lady, she disappears.

Questioning reveals anomalies that don't add up, as the trio delve deeper into a mystery that quickly turns sinister. Retracing the coach route by car, they spot an elderly man being abducted from a similar tour bus. Add in some shady characters from a local pub and a string of suspicious deaths at a nearby nursing home, and you have a shocking tale of murder for profit.

Surrounded by danger, Ben's retirement looks like it may be very short lived...

Sinister, indeed. A real page-turner with a bit of a twist. Recommended!

I look forward to meeting the author at the Oxford Convention.

I picked this book up at the book buffet because it seemed like something that I would enjoy. Seeing who has read it and recommended it before adding it to the book buffet, I am pleased, since we have similar tastes. Excited to read something by one of the featured authors.

I have to say that the mystery aspect was fairly well done and the characters were believable. However, the characters were also annoying (a large part of the basis of their believability) because they were often so busy squabbling that they obstructed their own abilities to solve the mystery. I will say that believability was the hallmark of every single character in the book, no matter how minor, which says a great deal for the author's ability. I think I ended up liking Cassie and Dave best, although they were side characters, because of the squabbling of Ben and Rosa and Anna. In the end, though, it did capture my interest and keep me engaged. I just don't know if I could read another book with those 3 as the protagonists without wanting to scream.

"A book is a mysterious object, I said, and once it floats out into the world, anything can happen. All kinds of mischief can be caused, and there's not a damned thing you can do about it. For better or worse, it's completely out of your control." -- Paul Auster
