Sort order. Jul 15, Milena Benini rated it did not like it Shelves: mystery , dnf. The whole thing is so self-consciously constructed, it comes off as natural as a cheap plastic rose from the 70s that's been additionally chewed on by one of those head-nodding dogs that used to be all the rage then. The dialogue is dead even before it leaves the characters' mouths, the situation as convincing as an excuse for no homework thought up by a nine-year-old, and the characters strive to be quirky as befits a semi- cozy with the determined good cheer of a fifties housewife moments bef The whole thing is so self-consciously constructed, it comes off as natural as a cheap plastic rose from the 70s that's been additionally chewed on by one of those head-nodding dogs that used to be all the rage then.
The dialogue is dead even before it leaves the characters' mouths, the situation as convincing as an excuse for no homework thought up by a nine-year-old, and the characters strive to be quirky as befits a semi- cozy with the determined good cheer of a fifties housewife moments before a nervous breakdown. May 14, Randy Tramp rated it it was amazing. I like the character, Kempston Hardwick.
He's down-to-earth, dedicated type of guy. And, he always figures out mysteries. This was a fast-paced, well-thought-out, suspense-driven, story.

Also,th I received this book as an ARC in axchange of a honest review. But the main character,Kempston Hardwick was the typical character of the crime books. He sees everything and he knows everything about someone just by looking at him or her. He is also very smart. The best part of this book is Kempston. This book was a little too rushed. But the great part is that Adam has a very easy style-writing which makes the book easy to read. Also ,the end is clever built. A mysterious crime and a smart investigator. Charlie Sparks is a public figure. He has almost everything:a lot of money,a lover wife and a a career in television.
But in the night of a show at a pub full of people he loses everything when he dies. He collapses on stage and dies. Nobody knows what happened with him.

But Kempston Hardwick was in the public when Charlie died. He and his new friend are going to the crime scene and Hardwick discovers that Charlie was poisoned. But who killed him? And why?
These are the questions. Well,read the book! Dec 17, Midnight rated it it was amazing. Charlie Sparks, a has been celebrity who at the height of his fame performed at Royal Variety performances, is scheduled to do a live show at the pub that evening. Kempston is an amateur detective and an alliance is quickly formed with Flint as a sidekick as they become involved in investigating the sudden death of Sparks at the start of his performance.
This novella can comfortably be read in a couple of hours and I read it in an afternoon. A very clever piece of writing! Oct 04, Roddy Williams rated it it was ok Shelves: murder-mystery , british. I started this during my hour's commute to work and finished it on the way back. It's that short. Once famous TV star Charlie Sparks' career has sunk to the point where he is doing spots in local pubs. Kempston Hardwick is in The Freemasons Arms on the night of a scheduled performance and there makes the acquaintance of Ellis Flint, who pays the landlord for a private meeting for them both with Charlie.
During the performance Charlie collapses and dies. Kempston suspects murder and shanghai I started this during my hour's commute to work and finished it on the way back. Kempston suspects murder and shanghais Ellis into helping him in a private investigation. It's all a bit odd, as the book is not really sure whether it's a comical adventure or not. One also suspects that the dated style of the narrative suggests it was written a long time ago and just put out for free for the sake of it. Fair enough if that's the case, but one would like some sense of date establishment.
One presumes from the nature of his comedy that Charlie was famous in the seventies. Most major stars of the seventies of this nature where in their thirties or forties or older which would make Charlie a little too old today for regular stage appearances and frolicking with strippers. You never know though. Also there's only one appearance of a mobile phone, which I suspect may have been added as an update.
