And there's the problem. As has been mentioned by a number of other reviewers, the many errors (typographical, formatting and, especially, punctuation) mar the enjoyment. It's particularly discouraging to note that some of the same errors I have reported were specified in reviews now dating back five years (to 2013). Is there any hope that error reports will be acted upon?
The novel itself is a delight. Charles Paris is an engaging creation, supported by a cast of wonderfully drawn recurring characters and 'guests'. The mystery element is sufficiently intriguing without being too convoluted, which is fine; the true pleasures of the Charles Paris novels lie in the central character and in Mr Brett's witty prose.
I would recommend them to anyone who likes crime drama without all the blood and gore, especially if you like to laugh out loud occasionally.
