I loved Doris, Clayton’s neighbour, she is such an endearing character and also gives us some insight into Clayton’s deceased wife and their marriage. Disposal is carefully crafted and layered with all those things we remember from growing up the 1970s and shows us, how police investigations were executed at that time. Reports are written on paper with a pen, a lot of footwork and grind-to-the-nose detecting – just delightful! It all gives Disposal that authentical feel as you are transported back in time whilst reading the engrossing plotlines, which include the personal lives of our protagonists. An enjoyable and captivating detective novel and a very promising start to a new series!
Oh boy, oh boy what a way to start a brand new series. Within the first few pages of Disposal I was hooked, the action had started and I couldn’t wait to try to solve the case.
Disposal is filled with many characters, I’ll admit I did get confused a couple of times but I did love Cyril. He’s an old-fashioned man still mourning the loss of his wife, still troubled by the war but he’s a fantastic caring man and really shines in this story. Working along side DI John ‘Dick’ Barton the two men couldn’t be more different, I really couldn’t take to Barton to start with, he was obnoxious and smarmy but as the story progresses so does the relationship between the two men and Barton shows he has some hidden depths. I really enjoyed this pairing, they really make the book.
Another wonderful character is Doris, Cyril’s elderly neighbour. Oh she was a wee sweetheart with a big heart and she cares deeply for Cyril like a son. Doris really shone and proved to be a very helpful hand in the investigation.
I know I’ve said a lot about the characters in this book and not so much about the plot but I think the characters in this book really do make the story what it is. That may sound like I didn’t enjoy the plot, on the contrary I really did enjoy it. The plot was intriguing with a great pace and it was interesting to see how they worked things out without all the new fangled technology we have these days, things didn’t happen so quick and were frustratingly slow at times. It’s good old-fashioned police work at its best.
The scene is really set well in Disposal with the smoking in the work place, the fashion, the cars, it all just makes you feel like you could be sitting in that era.
I really did enjoy Disposal, it was an intriguing read that kept me guessing through out and I’m looking forward to reading more in this series in the future.
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.
