I recommend you start with book one,but it’s a good series no matter where you start.I am an American if that makes a hill of beans.
Well,actually, a very expensive yacht. They went “fishing” every Saturday during good weather. At least that’s their euphemism for drinks, drugs and sex. Now 2 of them are dead. Plus a couple of the working girls they brought along on their fishing trips. Should have been a good who-done-it, right? The dialogue was too cute by half, as the Brits say.The Superintendent and DCI were victims of the Peter Principal–promoted WAY above their pay grade. Altogether, annoying as hell. I’ve read other books by Drake. Don’t recall them being this insipid and puerile. This could have been a good book. It wasn’t. Made me want to scream and do physical harm to a whole bunch of people.
Enjoy the Janssen series. Interesting characters and settings. Don’t understand his interest in Christine. She doesn’t understand the demands on a police officer so why bother to date one.
Very fast paced murder mystery Tanner is named SIO of murders richmenwho were beingblackmailed . And several girls worked the exoticdance club Riverside.How many people are involved in these crimes?plus a hurricanehas arriveddumping loads of rain. Enjoy this Tanner mystery.
The book begins with a disgusting scene of debauchery, setting the tone for pure sleaze for much of the story.I soon recalled that I had tried to read the first book in the series, but the writing was so bad, especially the sophomoric dialogue, and Vicky such a preposterous character that I soon quit reading.For curiousity’ssake, I skimmed through the rest of this book to see just how bad it is, and I was rather astonished at just how rotten it is. Just a few examples:1) More on the sleaze factor:Pages and pages are used to describe a woman on a bus inlaughably bad description such as “undulating rippling flesh” followed by an obscene, furtive act – yep, right on the bus.2) The writer’s vocabulary is pathetic! Pretty much every character does a lot of “smirking”, but I believe Blake doesn’t grasp the word’s specific, rather negative connotation.And I KNOW he doesn’t know what ” skulking” means, even though he uses the word several times.People out in the open don’t skulk – but here is an alleged writer who carelessly uses words he doesn’t understand!3) As to the bad dialogue in this book, it is non-stop with DCI Forrester’s constant, ridiculously juvenile and grossly exaggerated sarcasm. Blake’s entire depiction of the character is inexcusably bad, hardly worthy of a comic book dunce.There is also gore just for the sake of gore, a thwarted attempt at a romantic relationship on the maturity level of adolescents, and a book that is significantly too long for the meager plot.
Tanner’s poor communication and tech skills aren’t getting any better, and he’s not getting any smarter, nor is his blubbering boss. This series is getting very tiresome.
