    Having read the synopsis of the plot I'm left wondering if I'm reading the same book. Having purchased all the books from the beginning of this series I've been disappointed at the way this it has gone. Although there are grey areas in all people the way the senior detectives, first Rob Murray then Marion Goodnews go 'to the bad' is depressing.

Having purchased all the books from the beginning of this series I've been disappointed at the way this it has gone. Although there are grey areas in all people the way the senior detectives, first Rob Murray then Marion Goodnews go 'to the bad' is depressing. When Bradshaw, given a very sound reference by Norman Norman, appears on the scene with Samantha (Watson) Brearley to join Dave Slater I was hoping we now were being given a sound team which could be fleshed out and begin to work together along with the hidden team of misfits employed by Bradshaw. Unfortunately this hasn't happened & the author has changed Bradshaw from good guy to bad and back and forth again. My preference in mystery series is to have a basic group of people that I can follow from book to book eg LJ Ross' Ryan, Frank etc. and Deborah Crombie's Kincaid & James. This way I can relate to them & their lives and was hoping would happen with Slater, Norman, Bradshaw & Watson. The fact that Dave Slater hardly appeared in the latest book didn't help either, nor did the underlining of some words which I found singularly annoying.

    This is the 14th Dave Slater Mystery I have read and enjoyed. The plot of the Invisible Man delved into murder and paedophilia ,but like all the books in this series it was never dark or sinister. The main characters didn't over indulge nor did they crustaceans swear.Perhaps that's because they are not super sleuths but just two hard working bladders. Dave and Norman have developed over time. Norman is less of the number two with bad hair and scruffy clothes. However only 4 stars this time. What This is the 14th Dave Slater Mystery I have read and enjoyed.

    The books that keep on giving.. I am a big fan of PF Ford's books and this one did not disappoint. Slater and Norman rise to yet another challenge. What I like is the limited number of characters in the book, the great chemistry between Slater and Norman and the humour. My reviews never encompass the story line for fear of including spoilers, but poor Norman but then again has Slater found his true match. I will just say that there were too many lose ends at the conclusion, I like all the i's dott The books that keep on giving.. I am a big fan of PF Ford's books and this one did not disappoint.

    Dave and Norm have another mystery. Dave and Norm seem to be on the verge of closing up shop. Then a new client tell them she's had a text from her dead daughter. Can't go out of business now with a new mystery to solve. This story has lots of twists and turns. I had a hard time putting it down.

    Review I thoroughly enjoyed this book. However I am disappointed that the series has ended, as I liked the relationship between David and Norman. In fact I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole series. The series is a mixture of British police procedure, cozy and crime mysteries. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys a really good mystery.

    Twists and Turns Another captivating adventure for Norman and Slater, with even more twists and turns than usual. Mr Ford deftly leads you down path after path only to double you (and our protagonists) back in unexpected ways. A terrific, must-read addition to the series!

    Outstanding One of my favorite series. Dave continues to mature with Norman’s assistance. One of the more suspenseful of the series with a superb and surprising conclusion.

    Dave and Norman at it again. I have read all of this series, some were brilliant, some were good and some were not so good. This one rates in the good category. An interesting and unusual story line. The author does not pad out the book with unnecessary waffle but kept me glued to the story. If Dave and Norman are going to succeed in their business they will need to venture out to get more work.
