Christmas Naughty eNo re reading of sentences reuired and her ideas for plots rivalsven Agatha Christie s ingenuity as well as the fact she has a great sense of humour bitchiness that is sprinkled through out her novels This novel being the authors first is plainly obvious to regular cosy c There were too many characters to keep straight and also the story line did not hold my interest so I put this one aside I know I ve read some of these books long ago so am familiar with the author I think that the setting and pace were the factors which decided me into not going on with this read I heard about this book on the Classic Mysteries podcast and was happy to see it was available at my local library It took me three tries and renewing it twice both times for me to finally get it read Not that it was bad In fact it s a delightful story it just took awhile to get into it Henry Tibbet a well known detective is going on vacation with his wife to a remote skiing village When his bosses find out they tell him that there has been a problem with drug smuggling coming out of that particular Italian town While Henry works for Scotland Yard he is known to Interpol and they want his helpOn the way up Henry and Emma meet several people on a train all of whom are going to Santa Chiar with them There is a trio of young people an English colonel and his stereotypical wife as well as a countess getting away from her rather stiff and cold husband There are people that they meet once they get to the hotel the most notable being Herr Hauser He seems like a slimy sort who is than a little interested in the daughter of a German family staying at the hotel Of course it should come as no surprise that Herr Hauser is the one to get bumped off It s just sorting through the myriad characters and Alif 33 The Desert Human Geography And Symbolic Economy each of their motives Injoyed this book but it wasn t The Environmental Predicament Four Issues For Critical Analysis exactly a page turner that I couldn t put down It romanticized skiing in a remote Italian town in the 1950 s what s not to like but the story centered on a locked door type mystery where the murder could not have been committed the way it appears to have been committed Typically all of the characters were suspects and thending was unexpected but not Goldy Luck And The Three Pandas exactlyxciting Patricia Moyes has long been one of my favorite mystery authors from back in the days when paperbacks of her books were crowded onto my shelves Somewhere along the way though most of those books got loaned out or lost and so I was really happy to be offered an Hanging On Diaries 1960 1963 electronic review copy of the first title in Moyes Henry and Emmy Tibbett series Dead Men Don t Ski inxchange for my honest review As soon as I opened the book on my reader I remembered again why I like Moyes writing so much It s crisp clear and has a good dose of the dry British that I like so much Her descriptions of places and activities although probably contemporaneous when written CASE THE LATE 1950S NOW READ ALMOST LIKE A the late 1950s now read almost like a mystery don t suffer at all for it And I find it all still uite relatable The 2nd class ski train to Italy could asily without too much imagination be a Friday ski bus from Los Angeles to Mammoth The bars and restaurants of the little ski town with the subtle differences in clientele and d cor also are uite recognizable The various skiers from the terrified beginners to the Um Ein Neues Unternehmensrecht Vortrag Gehalten Vor Der Berliner Juristischen Gesellschaft Am 28 November 1979 easy intermediates to the competitive advanced skiers ring true as well And the plot about which I won t say too much to preserve its surprises is still solid as well So I was uite happy andnded up rereading this in just a couple of sittings If there is one way in which this doesn t age uite as well it s in the nature of the illicit drug trade which forms an lement in the narrative Without giving away any spoi.

I came across a mention of Dead Men Don t Ski via The Invisible Event a blog *Dedicated To Old Mostly Forgotten *to old mostly forgotten books from the arly the mid 20th century It was given a favorable 4 out of 5 star review and it seemed like an opportunity to try something a little bit out 5 star review and it seemed like an opportunity to try something a little bit out my normal reading habitHaving read a few reviews I can appreciate the historical place of this book It appears to be one of the first possibly the first cosy mysteries that now are uite commonplace It is also a travelogue mystery that is it occurs in some xotic or uniue locale which was also uncommon at the time A large part of the draw to readers at the time would have been descriptions of the Italian ski resort that were both Arthur S Classroom Fib expensive cumbersome to get to It appears to take 24 hours by train to get there with multiple changes of train to smaller and smaller linesOutside of that kind of historical curiosity though I was fairly underwhelmed by the book You have a standard set up a dozen or so people in a remote hotel someonends up murdered it turns that nearly The Adobe Photoshop Layers Book Harnessing Photoshop S Most Powerful Tool Covers Photoshop Cs3 With Cdrom every guest has a motive for killing the dead man Then follows some detection which largely involves building a time table of who was doing what when Mrs Smith had lunch from 12 1 and so on And then from that the detective can figure out whodunnitThis has always been my least favorite style of mystery book The idea that people can remember what they did when with any accuracy much less that various people with different watches would agree on thexact timing of things always has struck me as ridiculousIn this case it felt The Hidden Power Of Photoshop Elements 3 even ridiculous becausea the most likely murderer seemed obvious to me uitearly on and I never felt there was a plausible reason for discounting himb it turns out there was a witness who saw the whole thing and would have come forward in another day or twoBy about the 50% part the detective claims to have solved the murder A second murder occurs which doesn t actually add to the mystery much the most likely culprit of the second murder is Uber Energie Und Gravitation even obvious than the first but does drag out the book uite a bit Like many mystery books the authorngages in poor writing and underhanded tricks in order to sustain the mystery for the reader until the nd The detective xplains his suspicions to the Italian police and they formulate a plan of actionbut that all happens off screen for no reason other than to maintain the mystery to the reader Even worse comes later when they author becomes The Yard evenlliptical to maintain the mysteryHe asked Emmy a uestion and very surprised she answered Yes I suppose so That morning But what has that got to do with itorHe ran downstairs and out to the ski lift There he commandeered the telephone and rang Carlo He asked him two uestions and received the answers he Accounting Information Systems expected A good read a good plot good color and characters and a good puzzle with a neat wrapup Moyes kept me guessing throughout at all levels not just about technical factors such as timing but about the basic plausibility of various hypotheses I m looking forward to reading Later I m definitelynjoying this series I ve read about six of the The Vintage Pattern Selector By Jo Barnfield early ones as of this writing Moyes s writing plotting and construction get better with time and practice and I ve been giving them four stars The local color is also uitenjoyable and is not limited to Britain but Blood Of The Fallen extends to much of Western Europe reflecting Moyes s background so far Tibbett has done a good deal of traveling to Switzerland The Netherlands and FranceSo far the books are free standing there s no particular reason to read them in order Henry Tibbett was not a man who looked like a great detective In fact as he would be the first to point out he was not a great detective but.
