The Opal Serpent

by Fergus Hume

Hume at his most annoying! Perhaps the victorians liked it, but the absurd drawing of one of the characters (Debby) got so irritating I almost abandoned the book. Good plot but nearly ruined by this characterisation. Very un-Hume-like!!

The Secret Passage

by Fergus Hume

Hume at his best....but what a shame he's put a great big spoiler in the title! Not like him at all. Keeps you guessing till the end though - very satisfying.

Hagar of the Pawn-Shop

by Fergus Hume

What a delightful set of stories! Hume at his best. Not the usual 'whodunnit' style but plenty of puzzles and some great character descriptions. Recommended.

Ashton-Kirk, Criminologist

by John T. McIntyre

Good well-paced story with a faintly ridiculous ending: a cop-out in fact! Made worse by the reader not being given the vital clues Ashton-Kirk had found to solve it, so no chance of working things out. Shame - the rest was good.
