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.

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!

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!!
