    1. Your ead can be I the left luggage at Paddington and your severed limbs floating off Yarmouth pier, it doesn t mean you re dead be dead you ave to ave the right forms Michael Kenyon is a new author to me and a delightful one that I will be reading of.He writes with a dry sense of humour, a wry sense of the ridiculous and with random flights of fancy None of which detract from a good solid plot I learnt a lot of new language not that I will remember most of it, but it brought a smile to my lips [...]

    2. I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you, Endeavour Press A throwback to the classical whodunits of Ms Christie who is name checked here , Digging Up Death offers a limited list of suspects, a quirky policeman and picturesque but mysterious locations DCI Peckover, known as the Bard of the Yard is himself a guest to a dinner that ends in murder He was right there and yet, he saw nothing We then meet characters cops, witnesses, journalists all weird and fun [...]

    3. I found this book rather hard to get into, and the main character was a little hard to gauge The storyline was excellent and very intriguing and I found the telling style very different from anything I have come across before I did enjoy it, but I think I need to read some by this author.This book was provided to me in return for an honest and unbiased review

    4. It sounded fascinating Scotland, archaeologists, and murder Unfortunately, I found it somewhat dull, with neither the characters nor the plot particularly engaging.
