Dead Reckoning by Patricia Hall

In books read on August 15, 2006

My local library's crime section has tons of books by Patricia Hall and I keep passing them up. Last time I was in there I picked one up and it sounded ok, so I brought it home. This is from the middle of a long running series set in "Bradfield", a poorish city a short hop from Leeds - that's a very thinly disguised Bradford then. It's a male cop and girl reporter setup but so are some of my favourite crime series.

In the beginning I wasn't very into it, but it grew on me. There are some good in depth characters, some rather stereotyped ones, but no really cardboardy ones. The plot worked out ok - lots of race relations, worries about terrorism and failing textile mills - it rang pretty true to me.

A quick read, nothing very special but I'll probably pick another in the series up another time.

Borrowed.

Wake Up by Tim Pears

In books read on August 13, 2006

John Sharpe is driving round the ring round; and getting steadily loopier as time goes on. Very little time passes in the course of the book. A whole heap of reflections by an unreliable narrator. Great stuff! There's an underlying semi-pseudo-plot about genetic modification, but it's not how I thought it would be when I read the teasers.

I definitely need to read Pears' other books.

Borrowed.
