My original plan was to read these books in between reading others, well it was a plan that never materialised because as soon as I had read the first, I went straight onto the second, then had to read the final one.
Peter has a very fluid style of writing that had me addicted straight away. They are set in the 60’s, and this adds to the charm of the books, more relaxed read. They are humorous and compact, but packed full of detail.
These are a great lazy afternoon read, either sat in the sunshine or by the fire. A slightly shorter read than most mystery books I have read just recently, rather than taking hours to read, they can be completed in an afternoon. I read that this was what Peter was trying to achieve.
I am only giving a brief description of each of these books, as I really don’t want to give away any spoilers.
Morning: Colin Crampton a crime reporter in Brighton witnesses a crime, at the time when The Great Train Robbery is all over the news. Great first book tying up most of the questions and leads, but with something left for the next book.
Noon: This book follows on nicely from where the first left off, with a slightly different setting. From Brighton U.K to Brighton Beach U.S, his journalistic tendencies still get him into hot water.
Night: With the final book, back to Brighton. This is where conclusions are made and loose ends are tied up.
I really enjoyed the characters in this books, they are at times funny and considering the shortness of the book, have been very well portrayed.
I would recommend these books to readers of cozy mystery and crime genres.
These books should be read in order.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Peter for copies of these ebooks, my thoughts here are my own and are honest and unbiased.
