Love the curmudgeon detective Angel. His cutting comments just tickle me, we obviously have the same sense of humour. Together with the young Indian trainee not understanding. My grandaughter in law is foreign and she doesn't understand leg pulling.
The story was fascinating and the umbrellas had me stumped for some time. Wonderful writing. I am onto the 3rd in the series and enjoying each one as the characters blossom and the stories unfold little by little.

Good read

If, like me, you enjoy reading mysteries I suggest you try this book. Mr.Silverado is a new author for me. I have just purchased another of his books. I read this book over a 2 day period and thoroughly it.

My head was spinning

What a story! Really had me guessing with all the twists and turns. Like all the characters and what an entertaining read. The author tied it all up in a neat package.

Another winner

I love the Inspector Angel books. The Umbrella Murders is no exception. The characters are very believable and the mysteries will keep you guessing. I love Angel’s sayings. I highly recommend this book. I can’t wait to read the next one!

Good read

I enjoy the Sarcastic wit of Angel even though in the early books he annoyed me with his treatment of Ahmed. Overall a good read.

Just okay

I didn't care for the protagonist. I found very little suspense in the story. The figures were cardboard and unappealing.

Surprise

All clues lead to one person of interest. But Angel thinks it's too pat. While looking for other suspects, Inspector Angel has a new murder to solve besides. Good read!
