Hell Is Coming

by N.P. Martin

I, on the other hand, soon after beginning felt like throwing it against the wall, and would have if it hadn't been on my Nook.

Someone greatly needs a writing coach and a copy editor.

If I bothered with stars this would rate a two but I'd give it a one for excessive foul language.

The Submarine Boat

by R. Austin Freeman

I think it's fair to say that Freeman, while rarely spectacular, is always worth reading. I only wish we had more of his works.

The Adventures of Harry Revel

by Arthur Thomas Quiller-Couch

I usually have difficulty finishing these pseudo-autobiographical 19th century tales but this one went down quite well.

A Mysterious Disappearance

by Louis Tracy

Would have enjoyed this more had the characters been humans instead of angels brought down to earth, and had I not guessed the perp so soon. Still, I read it to the end with very little skipping, so it has some merit.

Typical premise, though—stupid policeman and brilliant amateur, each of whom go about matters in a highly lackadaisical manner and leave apparent clues unexamined. It's obvious they've watched neither Forensic Files nor 48 Hours.
