A short book written from the point of view of a boy on the autism spectrum. He is pretty verbal but it does give a taste of the way he might percieve things in a different way than us regular thinkers.
I enjoyed it.
Features DI Thorne, a London detective. Don't expect a mannerly British mystery; Thorne is intense.His character was made known to us in the first three books: Lazy Bones, Scaredy Cat, and Sleepy Head.
A charming mystery written in 1950. Jane and Dagobert Brown are a very "Nick and Nora Charles type" couple, only not so wealthy. One does wonder how they actually support the day and night sipping of interesting cocktails in foreign pensiones...
Enjoyable, witty, nice tangled plot, no violence or gore. You will enjoy the change of time and pace.
Adventure/romance featuring archaeology, ancient Italian history, scrolls, gold, brainwashing, hired killers, Scottish aristocracy,mercenary helicopter pilots who can fly off at the drop of a hat, you get the drift. I think the author tried to fit too many
things into one plot line! And of course you have the fiery often angry heroine who tries to resist her romantic attraction to the noble hero with a criminal streak
