Default Scarlet Autumn

I'm sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere, (I couldn't find it), but

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Scarlet-Autu...0A4S2HG21KVEX9

Is it worth a punt?

All the best

Dave

Can't say, but with a name like Quasar, he should be a star.

I've had my finger hovering over the buy button too....

I just bought a book on another subject that got a good review but turned out to be a real disapointment not what I was expecting at all

Off to check Rpperologist

Apologies for a late response...which issue please? (I've looked through a fair number each side of the publication date with no joy)

Thanks

Within the last couple of issues I would have thought. I don't have access to them right now.

I'm reading it now. I wouldn't bother.
On finding Polly Nichols' body Paul wonders whether someone 'got fresh with her' as her clothing is pulled up. Polly had a 'snoot full' earlier that evening when she met Ellen Holland, and PC Neil went over to Essex Wharf after her body was found and asked the night watchman there whether he had seen or heard anything. What!

That's a really succinct review, Curryong. That can save a lot of us a waste of time and money.
