I have read all of Roy Lewis's books this book is not a lot different than his other books, I enjoy the technical detail, I also think that Arnold is growing stronger he now stands up for himself a lovely character. I enjoyed this book immensely, can't wait to read the next.
Arnold is building a strong reputation as an amateur archaeologist and has won respect of professionals in that field. As the books progress he is moved from department to department as his bosses are generally incompetent and do not like Arnold unwittingly getting the Limelight. At the end of this book he looks set for another move as his latest boss, a glamorous Lesbian, feels threatened by him and believes, unfairly that he is after her job as the Deputy Director. As usual Roy Lewis keeps you guessing and wanting to turn the pages.
A man’s life ruined - hard prison time. A stupid death. Greedy people deceiving an elderly lady. They so nearly get away with it all, too. But thanks to Arnold’s horrible boss, he is in place to solve it all and get a cracking new job offer too! Onward.
This series of books is just perfect if you want an easy read and one where you get to know the main character. Arnold our hero is always in the wrong place and bodies start to appear. I am greatly enjoying the series and am always looking forward to the next one coming out. The plots are a bit tenuous but still a good read. Give them a go but do start with the first one. Enjoy
I have read 10 books now of Arnold Landon. I’ve enjoyed every one. Such a nice change from the normal detective series. Highly recommended No gore no over the top descriptions of violence and even better, the author doesn’t resort to unnecessary foul Language
I really enjoy all of Mr Lewis's books. Eric Ward is my favorite leading man but stories with Mr Landon as the main character are catching up. He is becoming more likeable , not so mild anymore & the plots appear to have become more intricate as I read each new book.
