Dead Wicked

GoodReads ★★ 2nd read for the #ReverseReadathonSo, it is only three days since finishing Dead Wicked during the Readathon and I have finally some time to write down my thoughts. However, I found I had to strain myself recalling who the bad guy was and why. I think that sort of sums up rather how... Continue Reading →

Dead Guilty

GoodReads ★★★ Missing children cases are the worst. I also don't like to read about them in books, to be honest. Nevertheless, it is a missing child that forms the spine of Dead Guilty. Of course, there is still a lot of other stuff going on as well.It was another quick read which I needed,... Continue Reading →

Dead Bad

GoodReads ★★ Another old case plays an important role in the eight book of the Calladine & Bayliss series, which is something that has been used a couple of times now in the series. I hope this will not be in every book now, or you would start wondering whether the detectives might not have... Continue Reading →

Dead Jealous

GoodReads ★★★ Dead Jealous is the seventh book already about Calladine and Bayliss, detectives is Leesdon, a small English town with surprisingly high crime rates. A lot is going on once more, multiple cases and it is a rather short read at that. To that is added the personal lives of the detectives and you... Continue Reading →

Dead Nasty

GoodReads ★★★ A girl found murdered in a dustbin means the start of the next Calladine & Bayliss investigation. The murder strongly resembles an old case. That murderer has been recently released. Surely, that could not have been a coincidence? Another police procedural, and as always a quick read. One thing that started to bother... Continue Reading →

Dead & Buried

GoodReads ★★★ A mysterious 40 year old diary seems somehow connected to a recent string of murders which start after the re-emergence of a local villain. It is the setting of the fifth book in the Calladine & Bayliss series. They are nice if a bit short police procedurals. In this case Bayliss is on... Continue Reading →

Dead Lost

GoodReads ★★★ Another one in the Calladine & Bayliss series. This time, they have trouble to find the body. These are quite simple and uncomplicated police procedurals that I enjoy to read from time to time. There is also a lot of the personal lives of the main detectives thrown in, which could have been... Continue Reading →

Dead List

GoodReads ★★★ Dead List is the third major case for Calladine & Bayliss. Another string of dreadful murders, all linked through tarot cards. I cannot help but wonder when I read this, why does the murderer make it so easy to connect the murders? If one wanted to stay uncaught, would it not be way... Continue Reading →

Dead Silent

GoodReads ★★★ Dead Silent continues the story of Calladine and Bayliss through another gruesome case. As this series is shaping up to be a full series of rather short-but-enjoyable police procedurals, I couldn't help but wonder whether the focus was not a little too much on the personal lives of the main characters. Both their... Continue Reading →

Dead Wrong

GoodReads ★★★ Dead Wrong introduces us to detectives Calladine & Bayliss in the start of a new series of police procedurals. A lot has been said and done in that genre so it is difficult to stay original but they make nice quick reads. The balance is a little bit too much towards the personal... Continue Reading →
