I was born in the 1970’s so don’t actually remember much about that era as was too young to be interested in the cars and adult television shows that were around at that time. I think anyone that is a little bit older will certainly enjoy some blasts from the pasts though.
The author really gets the whole era of that time spot on. The names of the characters are ones you wouldn’t really come across now a days apart from more in the older generation. There is a part where the main character goes caravanning which was especially big in those days. I think it will certainly have some readers reminiscing about the ‘good old days’
Cyril himself is close to retirement, he has lost his wife and is struggling with some demons. Your heart does kind of go out to him as he comes across as quite lonely, and like his neighbour, I just wanted to mother him. I enjoyed the relationship between Cyril and Barton also. There is an age gap and both have different attitudes to how they do their job. It certainly made for some interesting reading.
Disposal is a solid start for a new series. It gives us the background we need to get to know our main protagonist as well as an interesting case to get behind. Whilst it felt a bit more of a slower pace than how I usually like my crime reads, there is enough there to keep the reader intrigued and I think this is a series that without a doubt will grow in strength.
My thanks to Caroline at Bits About Books and the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Set during the long hot summer of 1976, the police department is struggling and needs more men when a curious case lands in their laps. Sgt Cyril Claydon is coming up to retirement when a small aircraft crashes into the sea in front of him. With the pilot dead, an explanation needs to be found, but when a package in the front sea reveals a dead body, this 'accident' takes a far more sinister turn. Finding himself suddenly promoted, Cyril finds himself working with DI Barton, a man known for his differing attitude. Can these two contrasting men work together to uncover the truth? And will they be able to survive the danger they will find themselves in?
I found DISPOSAL by David Evans an easy crime fiction read where the story just flowed and there wasn't too much information to keep track of. I enjoyed the relationship between Cyril and Barton and watching it evolve into respect, and I love some good old police work which there is plenty of in this story. All in all, DISPOSAL is a solid story and I will certainly read more from this author.

I very much enjoyed the relationship between Barton and Cyril Claydon, especially the way it developed over the course of the book. For me, it was more interesting than the crime mystery, as I found that with such a large number of characters, some only briefly encountered, I kept losing track and mixing people up. I like to get to know each character, good and bad, and feel I have a grip on who is who. Some of them slipped passed as I blinked. Nevertheless, the story is well written and many of the relationships as they unfolded, bode well for the future. It's a jolly good read.
