    Closer to 2.5 Adrian Magson writes a good story but the plot in this book was far fetched with no real depth to any of the characters Although it starts off quite well it becameimplausible with each chapter Many readers enjoyed this book with five star ratings, however, I couldn t quite buy into the whole scenario Having read Magson s books before and enjoyed his style, I will definitely readby this author but unfortunately found this one disappointing.

    This is a very accomplished Crime Thriller by the excellent writer Adrian Magson His character Inspector Lucas Rocco now in his fourth outing is a growing name in crime fiction Magson flits between writing these police procedurals set in 1960 s France and a series of modern day spy thrillers This is by far the best Rocco book to date the detective is comfortable in his rural surroundngs having been transfered in the first episode from Paris The writing isaction thriller centred as pol This is a very accomplished Crime Thriller by the excellent writer Adrian Magson His character Inspector Lucas Rocco now in his fourth outing is a growing name in crime fiction Magson flits between writing these police procedurals set in 1960 s France and a series of modern day spy thrillers This is by far the best Rocco book to date the detective is comfortable in his rural surroundngs having been transfered in the first episode from Paris The writing isaction thriller centred as political intrigue spills over again into this agricultural setting The police side is well established with trusty colleagues and even a better working relationship with his boss.The story centres on a murder at a private sanitorium which a government department tries to suppress this only spurs Rocco on to investigation ministerial cover ups and conspiracies Especially as he learns that rather than responding to events the Ministry may be orchestrating matters forshader purposes.This series is getting stronger and the plots do justice to a modern readers desire for action and danger, however this is another era and as a result the books are a wonderful counterpoint to the many similar comtemporary crime novels which seem to try to out do each other with darker writing Consequently, Magsons Rocco novels will delight and provide a sense of rest, amid the action and thrills within its pages

    It was with great anticipation I returned to Picardie and the delightful company of Inspector Lucas Rocco, and Magson did not disappoint me This is the fourth book in the series and he has settled into a comfortable groove balancing tense, atmospheric crime thriller plotting, careful characterisation, police procedure, politics, social comment and dry humour I particularly enjoy the way Magson shows the rural way of life in early 60s France and the obvious affection in his portrayal of various It was with great anticipation I returned to Picardie and the delightful company of Inspector Lucas Rocco, and Magson did not disappoint me This is the fourth book in the series and he has settled into a comfortable groove balancing tense, atmospheric crime thriller plotting, careful characterisation, police procedure, politics, social comment and dry humour I particularly enjoy the way Magson shows the rural way of life in early 60s France and the obvious affection in his portrayal of various local inhabitants of the close knit community where Rocco admits he is happy to live Rocco is dashing, in his dark suits and English shoes, and, as ever, averse to following orders, this time drawn into dark goings on in a shady government department to do with trade negotiations going on at the time between France and the People s Republic of China There s a particularly nasty rogue intelligence officer who made my skin crawl every time he appears, a real Bad Egg As usual Rocco puts the pieces together before anyone else but he s very much part of a team working together There might be a hint of some development in his love life, too


  5. Mark Ellis Mark Ellis says:

    Another very entertaining Lucas Rocco adventure This one features ruthless Government operatives and businessmen employing violence and murder to influence French trade policy with China As always in this series, the atmosphere of 60s France is beautifully evoked and the characterisation and writing is excellent Highly recommended.


  6. Ann Tonks Ann Tonks says:

    Set in the 1960s in France, this is a fascinating insight into politcs, business and the secret service if of, course, it bears any relationship to the truth Rocco is the tradition of handsome, smart, ornery detectives fighting the system in order to resolve the mystery All somewhat predicable apart from the setting and the story.


  7. Liam Connolly Liam Connolly says:

    My third Rocco novel, and definitely a good one Perhaps slightly formulaic when compared with the first two, but a fun read with some nice twists and great characters.


  8. Doreen Richards Doreen Richards says:

    A good procedural police tale With a mild French flavour Not a huge amount of local colour but some And some idea of the hierarchy of the different police forces.


  9. Graham Graham says:

    An excellent series Rocco is a great character and the threads in the story fit together well Looking forward to readingfrom the author
