Harry turned in his badge & now he can turn to an old case that stuck with him.There was something so effecting about this one for me, is that it is told in first person? Is it that now he is not a cop he literally has no back up? Not that as a cop he didn‘t often go his own way.Drive, drive, drive for me but the next 3 will be in book format , found em cheap at a yard sale!

“Detective Chief Inspector Roberta Steel got caught fitting up Jack Wallace – that‘s why they demoted her and quashed his sentence. Now he‘s back on the streets and women are being attacked again.

The top brass have made it very clear that if Detective Sergeant Steel goes anywhere near him, she‘ll be thrown off the force for good.”

I didn‘t like Christie as a teen. I wanted my golden era crime hard-boiled or aristo. I‘ve come back to her and am enjoying some immensely.

CW: a queer character is treated as inherently suspicious.

Charity shop find.

Second book finished for #NovelNovember! @Andrew65

This installment of the Maigret series has the most exciting start of the ones I've read so far, with a condemned prisoner escaping from his cell.

I also watched the TV adaptation with Bruno Cremier, which was good though melodramatic. The characters drank a lot of Manhattans in the Parisian bar!

(1967) Seventh in the Three Investigators mystery series. In this one Jupiter, Pete, and Bob help a British boy whose American uncle has left him a mysterious inheritance and the only clues to its location are in a cryptic letter left by his uncle.

It's a tidy little puzzle, and the Three Investigators do what they do. If you like the formula then you'll like this one too, as I did.

This is my #DoubleSpin read for November.
