I really enjoyed it!

I loved the newness that rolled off the pages and the vividness with which he painted battle sequences. His characterisation is always a little less than fully rounded but god can he write. The dissappointment was the final book when the resolution is more of a let down than anything else.

If you really want to read some fast paced books though I thought the Greg Mendel Series to be far superior as a collection than any of the other collections.
A very good author to just read and I think there will be a killer series from him yet that will blow the socks off everyone. The imagination and writing ability is present and all it will take is a good story and a sharp editor!

You have both McLevy volumes! Terrific! (Some bod called David Ashton has written a "follow-up" Edinburgh mystery featuring his version of Inspector McLevy, called THE SHADOW OF THE SERPENT. I found it in a bookshop on Thursday and grabbed it for £3, but from a quick flick through it's obvious he can't capture the 24-carat wit of that wonderful narrator. Shame: hope the story's good, at least. Also, the book contained a splurge sheet from the publisher stating that a McLevy 90-min drama would be screened on ITV in Christmas 2006, so I'm looking fwd to some atmospheric shots of Victorian Edinburgh shot through a thick gauze.)

I see we also gave THE EIGHT 4 stars :)
Hi, we seem to be the only ones with "The Man in the Ice".
