However, that being said the book had many typos in it and one of the murder victims names kept changing in the chapters from Arthur to Arnold interchangeably and I found that very annoying. The editors of this book should be taken to task. Very disappointing in quality for this reader.
Do you enjoy a finely written British investigatory novel? Then this one is for you. Do you enjoy a mystery that unravels in front of you which has twists and turns of who is involved and why they are involved? Then this one is for you. Do you enjoy the chase, the pursuit of a murderer most foul and the confusion of not being able to step in front of the murderer in the investigation? Then this one is for you. Do you enjoy a book with an explosive ending? Then this one is for you.
Brian L. Porter is a consummate writer of mysteries. His style and usage of the language is nonpareil. His creation of characters and the flesh he gives them in pursuit of his story lines is excellent. The intermingling of male and female characters that he presents as a part of his view of the criminal world is wonderfully done. The by-play, the respect and recognition that each of the characters give to one another is at times humorous, at times provoking, at times a major contributor to the fabulous nature of his story telling ability.
I give this book five stars without regard to any of the editing errors mentioned by another reviewer. I think those who center their reading on whether a book has editing errors are making a huge mistake and missing the entire point of the reading which is the story itself. This story is exciting, compelling and demands your attention. Five stars is well earned.
Brian L Porter has created a superb mystery around the proverbial police procedural novel, in which the characters are all very ‘human’ and believable, especially the police officers who are presented as ordinary everyday working guys, with all the failings and personality quirks that apply to us all in real-life. The police procedures are accurate and the forensic details well researched. In short, I loved Purple Death, and highly recommend it.
I received a complimentary review copy of the book in exchange for a true and unbiased review.
