    review The Skeleton Man ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Skeleton ManFirst Sentence The Capri shook to the sound of snoring and through the fly spattered windscreen of the mini cab Philip Dryden contemplated the Fen horizonJournalist Philip Dryden accompanies the Territorial Army on a war games exercise Jude’s Ferry is now deserted but was a small village in Cambridgeshire which for 1000 years never recorded a single crime Until now When an errant shell hits the old pub a cellar unmarked on ordinance maps is uncovered as are the remains of someone who died by hanging It might have been a suicide except for the marks on the ribs which indicate the victim was stabbedThis was not my favorite book by Jim Kelley I found there were too many characters and few about whom I ca

    review The Skeleton Man ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Skeleton ManAlthough The Skeleton Man is the fifth book in Jim Kelly's Philip Dryden series it is the first I have read because it's the only one available at my public library I will be reviewing the most recent Philip Dryden book The Funeral Owl through NetGalley this week and I wanted to get some idea of the characters first The Skeleton Man served admirably for this purpose The Skeleton Man is similar in structure to a standard British police procedural except that the protagonist is a journalist rather than a police officer Dryden doesn't let his lack of official police credentials slow him down however; in some respects his journalist role enables him to get to the heart of the mystery uickly than the authoritiesI enjoyed the many twists in the plot; even those I thought I saw coming turned out differently than I expected I also appreciated the way in which Kelly provided enou

    review The Skeleton Man ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Skeleton ManAnother 4 stars for Jim KellyTo me this book proves it is always best to read a series in orderNot just the plot time line but also to see how an author grows and adaptsIn my humble opinion Jim Kelly has learnt to turn down some of the irritating traits in his writing Here we have a very clever plot that keeps on twisting until the end Well worth a readOne other thing for those of you who are familiar with the 1980’s British TV series “Hammer House of Horror”I suggest you dig out the episode “Black Carrion”

    review The Skeleton Man ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Skeleton ManThis is my first Dryden mystery and I'm not sure yet how I feel about Jim Kelly as an author The novel has an intriguing mystery and unfolds in an unpredictable fashion but there is little sense of danger until late in the story and so rather than feeling a personal stake in the proceedings I felt like I was watching a documentary unfold He has won awards though and has uite a following so maybe this isn't a particularly

    review The Skeleton Man ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Skeleton ManI just don't find the protagonist in this series having read 3 all that sympathetic although he has been lumbered with all manner of tragic life events eccentric side kicks and all But in this title I felt Kelly had seriously over plotted and was not surprised at the number of times his Dryden had to sit down and sort out what was and was not developing in all the strands set alight More than once I was tempted to return to my academic crutch of reading with a pencil and notebook handy but dammit this is supposed to be a recreational read Not prepping for a testAnd good gawd the cast on and off stage of thousands in this one had me putting down the book regularly to recover from my head spinningPerhaps it's simply Dryden's role as a news
