After reading the Coroner’s Lunch I had to get the next in the series What I wrote about the first still applies but of course the mystery is different I very much enjoyed the banter and especially the character development of Dtui However the mystery is not nearly as well thought out or interesting as in the first book and there is no political element to it However the communist regime’s ultimatum to the spirits was absolutely hilarious as well as Dr Siri’s loudspeaker rage incident So while the mystery is lacking here a bit there is still plenty of fun to be had Since I am shut in but these are available in my library’s online section I am set for a while with entertainment Download µ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Â Colin Cotterill
