Having read the first book in this series, I can honestly say Book 2 is a lot better than Book 1. Although both are well-thought out and well-written, the characters seem to be much more believable. The dialogue flowed much more easily. The Australian background enhances the story line.

When a CIA agent is murdered at Sandy Point, Martin and Claire find much more than a simple murder. What they find is an international plot that takes them from one end of the country to the other in order to prev

The Oz Files: Intrigue at Sandy Point was fantastic. I think that this book was just as good as the first in this series, Broometime Serenade, which with many books is not the case. This one has so much adventure and excitement that you never know what's coming on the next page. I really love these books and how he puts a spin on the normal murder mystery with witches and warlocks mixed in. This book could stand on its own, since it explains what happened in the last book, but as a series it's f ...more

Intrigue at Sandy point: the Oz files is an interestingly told story that isn't one I've read before. Barry Metcalf is a new to me author and I'm glad that I had the chance to read this work.

With agents, and criminals and some paranormal to throw in this story will grab you and not let go until you find out what it all means.

Written extremely well and interestingly enough in a POV that I normally don't enjoy reading. This is the book that changed it for me. Exceedingly interesting and action p

Intrigue at Sandy Point by Barry Metcalf is a great thriller. I would rate it a 4.5 because it did take me a bit to get into. Once I did I could not put it down. I liked the main characters. There were a couple of twists that I did not expect towards the end of the book. There is a lot of non stop action within the pages. There is more than one story within the plot but they connect. I have not previously read this author but I would like to read more of his books. Especially the other two books ...more

It leaps right into the action. Adventure, mystery, murder and mayhem! Not for the faint of heart. It does have acts of rape in this book. So if you can't stomach reading it, this book is not for you.
Martin and Claire get a new assignment looking into the death of a sleeper agent from the USA. But also a billionaire who they suspect is into more than just drug runs but need the proof to put him away. But with every twist and turn, someone is either kidnapped or murdered. Who, what, when and why

Murder, Mystery, Mayhem... being book 2 I wonder what I missed in book 1. That quickly disappeared when the book kept me intrigued with every turn of the page. It will not be a book that everyone likes because it has alot of action and killing in it. However, it is a book for people who love very good writing...

Good book. It kept my interest , I had to figure out what was going on. Probably better if I had read the first one. A lot of unnecessary killing, not really my thing.

Born in 1943 to a working class family with middle class aspirations, I began writing stories while at school, finally venturing into novels when I retired from teaching in 1997. The result was a series of mystery/thriller novels set in Australia and featuring two unorthodox investigators who work for the fictional Strange & Obscure Cases (SOC) Unit, an autonomous offshoot of ASIO.
