Fun, quirky collection of short stories.
This is actually a collection of short stories that all involve the escapades of a crime correspondent on a newspaper. Readers get to follow along as Colin Crampton tells the tales of some quirky stories he has covered while doing his job. The stories are quick, fun reads and I think readers will enjoy all of them,
EHow can you laugh so hard at murder?
I haven’t enjoyed this kind of story in ages. While I don’t speak English slang of the 60’s, it was easy enough to follow, and both the delightful twists and only in England type takes were a real treat. Some are long, some shorter, all a delight.
Murder From The Newsdesk
This book was well written, and tells a variety of seven different stories. I found each story interesting, and each one told had a different type of dialogue with a variety of people and characters in them.
Another great book!
I don’t typically like short stories but having read another book by Peter Bartram, I had to read this one. I am glad I did! Told in his usual dry wit, the stories comes alive and I wished they were longer!
Newsman Solves Crimes
While looking for a good crime story, journalist continually stumbles on tips that lead to both a good story and arrest. Written like short newspaper articles, each chapter is a complete story.
Better watch the news!!
Quirky tales of a newspaper crime reporter & how he acquires some of his information to solve crime mysteries while also reporting the news.
a good read.
Nicely developed characters. fairly straight forward story line. easy reading because of the short story format. Simple anecdotal approach for the subject.
A good ‘take me away’ book. There were several extra short stories included, and I enjoyed each of them. Enjoy.
This book of short stories is a fun and interesting read. iIt is as much fun as agitha’s shorts were.
