M. Francis, I am afraid I cannot find Thus Was Adonis Murdered on Kindle. Was it in some sort of collection?

Oh absolutely Charlotte McLeod...if you can still find "The Curse of the Giant Hogweed", you'll enjoy one of the funniest books ever written. At times I laughed so hard I could hardly continue reading.

Yes! Dorothy Cannell's Ellie Haskell! I remember just loving those books. Will have to go back and figure out where I left off! Thanks!!!

Re - Thus Was Adonis... by Sarah Caudwell: It looks like it is only available in book form.

Tarquit Hall's Vish Puri series.

I don't often say this--Best started at the beginning (THE MAN WHO DIED LAUGHING), so that later when Handbrake appears you know that he is Vish Puri's driver and sometime detective. Parts of these are so played for laughs that one can easily forget that there are real stories involved.

It might also be better if you get that first one in audio form, especially if your Indian Subcontinent accent is not particularly good (or if it has been honed only on the worst of the alleged customer service places).

I just read the new book in the Vish Puri series, The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken: A Vish Puri Mystery (Vish Puri Mysteries), and it was very funny, but also a terrific mystery and a real insight into both modern Delhi and the 1947 history of the partition of India and Pakistan. This was my first book read in the series and I didn't feel disadvantaged by not having read the first two books in the series---though I will definitely go back and read them now.

When I say "read," I should really say "listened to." The audiobook had an excellent narrator.

A few months ago, I read Weekend in Weighton and found it to be laugh out loud funny. I saw where it's on sale this week for 99 cents. I highly recommend it.

The Curse of the Giant Hogweed (Peter Shandy Mysteries)@ Carol J. Ramirez,

I'm so glad I stopped by this thread today! I have never read (I'm almost afraid to admit) Charlotte McLeod, but when I read your rec. of The Curse of the Giant Hogweed, I went right to the Kindle store and bought it. It looks to be right up my weird alley!

Thanks,

Irene

I'm reading MacLeod's other series, but I bought some of the Shandy series, too. Love her books so much. She just has a way with witty dialogue and wonderful eccentric characters. (Had a way....sadly, we no longer can look forward to new books by her)

Try the new comic crime novel Bullwhacked. You don't have to know or care about rodeoing.

Well -- this thread appears to be totally hi-jacked by folks promoting books versus readers sharing books. I am not at all happy with the last 3 posts (not including yours, DL). No way am I going to read any of these books.

I'm with you, Holly. This Bob Rosenblum guy seems to have a whole squadron of spammers. Garbage posts for his book have been appearing for weeks now.

It's just sad because this type of activity is just a thread/forum killer. No point in even looking at any posts if we get taken over by these promos (and it's pretty obvious that is what they are).
