Death of a Policeman (2014)

review 1: Wow. Beaton has managed to find a way to create a cast of characters more obnoxious and annoying that the ones in Rowling's Casual Vacancy. I need to avoid her Hamish Macbeth mysteries. Some of the idiocy in the book: a 'detective' who allows his (tamed wild-) cat and his dog to ...

review 1: This is a delightful cozy mystery series that has stood the test of time and only gotten better; reading them is one of my guilty pleasures, I have to admit. Agatha Raisin is a real rip--a smart, fiftyish woman always on the lookout for husband number three. In this twenty-fifth ...

review 1: I really enjoy the Hamish Macbeth mysteries and found this to be one of the better ones. I must say that a lot happens in and around the tiny towns in northwest Scotland! These characters were intriguing, especially the brother and sister. Hamish always amazes me the way some sma...

review 1: I read one of the author's Agatha Raisin books about ten years ago and did not enjoy it much. However I thought I should give her another chance and try a book in another series. I was not quite sure what to make of this. The author writes in very short sentences and I was not...

review 1: If YOU invent the character YOU should be able to keep track of the details of his life. I hate inconsistencies! In this book, we first meet the character of Simon Black WHOSE PARENTS ARE DEAD! In other, later books, they are very much alive.Now they may be alive in an early w...

review 1: M.C. Beaton's "Christmas Crumble" is a very short (36 pages) book that isn't worth the sub-dollar price currently being charged for it. Oh, not for the price or shortness. But, very simply because Beaton thinks it's supposed to be humorous, when, instead, it's just a series of na...

review 1: Private detective Agatha Raisin is hard at work solving a murder but her raging hormones interfere and she falls in love with every vaguely eligible man she encounters. Agatha is prickly and self involved and not particularly likeable at first but she does grow on you. This boo...

review 1: Agatha Raisin is back for more crime and mayhem! At a local pantomime, Agatha sees more drama than she bargains for when local baker and amateur actor, Bert Simple, dies on the set, having being staked between the legs on the trap door. It was a gruesome end to what seems like a ...

review 1: Hell’s Bells is a short story featuring Agatha Raisin. Mary Brand has a habit of annoying her neighbours. Her latest endeavour sees the church’s bells being re-rung and the noise is driving fellow neighbour, Jessica Brand. When Jessica finds the dead body of Mary hanging from the...

review 1: Another Agatha Raisin. While these books have many, many repeated elements they are always good reads even if sometimes predictable. Don't know how Beaton has given us a character that we don't always like but still hold close to our hearts. It is as if Agatha is that slightl...

review 1: Another enjoyable visit from Agatha Raisin. I enjoy how Beaton writes these Raisin novels...similar themes but not a cookie-cutter series at all. Agatha is semi-predictable, in her own way, but then again, she throws the reader a curve every once in a while, as is her whim. This ...

review 1: This book reminded me of the time I made the mistake of getting my lady parts waxed at a nail salon: thoroughly and unnecessarily unpleasant. I wanted it to end. But it just didn't. Not for quite some time. Every small action was drawn out. And just when I would see a glimme...

review 1: I know quite a few people who read the Agatha Raisin books and I was expecting much more from this story. I know this is a Christmas short story but there was no substance to it at all. A weak storyline and no particularly likeable characters either. A couple of the elderly gu...
