About this deal

It's also very obvious that it was written over 15 years ago when the characters talk about things like "this is how women are", "that's a man thing" and the horrible "boys will be boys" attitude when talking about bullying. We have Jazmine, Jazz (the head detective), Robert (the headmaster), David (the father), Hugh (the teacher and tutor), Angelina (the mother), Jenny (the secretary), Julian (the shitty new husband), Thora (the inn keeper), Sebastian (the headmaster of the hosue), Isabella (the psychologist) and Adele (mother of the first victim). The lack of any modern technology and Norfolk setting gave the mystery an isolated, small town feel, combining together an Agatha Christie vibe with a dark academia feel- it was a lot of fun.

La protagonista Jazz es una policía que ha pasado una temporada retirada del cuerpo de policía debido a un problema personal. manchmal holperte der Spannungsbogen etwas, da sehr viele Nebenhandlungen sehr ausführlich beschrieben werden. But when one of the other characters died, I literally celebrated, that should tell you enough about how much I disliked them.The technical storage or access is strictly necessary for the legitimate purpose of enabling the use of a specific service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, or for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network. Creo que es debido a que el hijo decidió no someter la obra a posterior revisión, sino publicarla tal como su madre la dejó, sin consultas forenses de por medio.

Lucinda Riley was born in 1965 in Ireland and, after an early career as an actress in film, theatre and television, wrote her first novel aged twenty-four. Todo se va entretejiendo para llegar a la resolución sin cabos sueltos, el ritmo es ágil y los personajes no están mal. In 2020 she received the Dutch Platinum Award for sales over 300,000 copies for a single novel in one year - a prize last won by J.Tiene cierta dosis de denuncia social, un poquitito de romance y la cantidad justa de personajes para poder seguirlos sin coger papel y lápiz. Out of desperation, and knowing I had to give it a good go since it was a Netgalley e-ARC, I purchased the audiobook with one of my audible credits. La trama è articolata, abbiamo vari pov, storie che sembrano non avere alcun collegamento, ma che in realtà si intersecano in una vicenda fatta di omicidi, suicidi, tradimenti, eredità, segreti, amore, famiglia, fantasmi del passato.

Closing the door quietly and switching on the light, the figure was aware almost immediately of the ingrained, musty smell of unwashed socks, sweat and raging hormones which had, over the years, permeated every nook and cranny of Fleat House. Charlie was the school bully and repeatedly tortured the younger students, with incidents often going ignored by the rest of the school staff. Now this manuscript has been released the world as The Murders at Fleat House, a twisty police procedural mystery. I also liked how the book fleshed out her personal and professional life, following her as she worked on the case but also at her Father’s side after his heart attack. The investigation that proceeds with the arrival of Jazz and Miles reveals the secrets that have connections to events in the past.As Jazz must confront her personal demons, a grim discovery at the school will make this the most challenging murder investigation of her career. Since there were so many main characters in here, it hardly felt like any side characters were present, so I will mosh what would normally be my two paragraphs into one. A cross between a police procedural and a murder mystery but not quite a Cozy, the likable characters out number the unappealing ones. Me ha gustado, Jazz, la inspectora protagonista, sus dotes como investigadora, la familia que tiene, así como sus circunstancias personales y cómo las afronta.

Schade, dass es durch den frühen Tod Lucinda Rileys wahrscheinlich keine Fortsetzung mit der symphatischen Ermittlerin Jazz geben wird. Consenting to these technologies will allow us to process data such as browsing behaviour or unique IDs on this site. Riley does a good job of setting her scene in the Norfolk surrounds, this location had a misty and creepy vibe.As snow covers the landscape and another suspect goes missing, Jazz must also confront her personal demons . And it paid off, I had no issue with the audio, and raced through the 480 pages over a day and a half. Al estilo de Agatha Christie, genera intriga, todos ocultan algo y no sé si ha quedado alguno del que no haya sospechado. Jazz Hunter to bohaterka, której poczynania śledzi się z prawdziwą przyjemnością, której przeszłość chcielibyśmy zgłębić, towarzyszyć jej w kolejnych sprawach. Este me apreció ideal ya que es su primer y único libro de misterio y creo que he acertado porque la verdad es que me ha entretenido mucho y no puedo ponerle ninguna pega.
