The Silent Murders Reviews
very good.couldn't put it down.
This is a superb book. I just couldn't put it down. Sat up really late two nights in a row to finish it. A proper and very clever detective story with plenty of red herrings. I liked the characters of Inspector Dewar and particularly Superintendent Bone. Must find out if they feature in any other of Macdonell's books.
In some ways I enjoyed this more than The Factory on the Cliff - it was a thriller while this was a police procedural puzzle, though still well paced. It was less obviously dated in its attitudes than The Factory, and I liked the police characters very much, though the others were less thoroughly drawn.
A very clever story, full of red-herrings and unexpected complications. Gripping and a real pleasure to read.
