All Bressingham’s mental wrestling wouldn’t recall the provenance of the Latin, though he promised to give the matter no rest until he succeeded in tracking it down. e-room he remained positive, but that, alas, was academic. Orgy-room or linen-closet, it offered no key to Gently’s problem. It was secure; probably it had no other connection with Peachment’s treasure. Bressingham felt his failure. He smoked a last, despondent Manikin with Gently. From the glum expression on his chubby face you might have thought he’d just lost on a deal

Gently with the Innocents. I am working my way through this series, and this was one of the best. Alan Hunter's particular genius with genre (and he does the weather so very well!) and making it part of the general mood of the piece manifests itself here again, but it gets under your skin. The cold, the isolation of each set of people, the darkness which is so much part of this mystery creates a detective story which just misses being really menacing.

Gently With the Innocents book. The seventeenth book in the George Gently series has our stalwart protagonist stray into the horror/thriller genre and, I have to say, parts of this book were absolutely chilling! The hair actually stood up on the back of my neck in the final chapter; I kid ye not! I really enjoyed this one, with its hints of the supernatural and echoes of the ancient past. This makes two five star Gently's in a row for me; I wonder if Hunter can make that a hat trick?

He breathed the uprising exhaust fumes with the contented nostrils of a connoisseur, and felt in his pocket for yet one more peppermint cream.

Chapter one. CHIEF INSPECTOR GENTLY, Central Office, CID, reached automatically into his pocket for another peppermint cream and fed it unconsciously into his mouth. Then he folded his large hands one over the other on the guard rail and peered into the inferno below him with a pleased expression, rather like a middle-aged god inspecting a new annex for the damned. It was something new in Walls of Death. It was wider, and faster. He breathed the uprising exhaust fumes with the contented nostrils of a connoisseur, and felt in his pocket for yet one more peppermint cream.

Gently With the Painters. They lived together in a flat about a mile from the scene of the crime, but they lived in separation, sleeping and eating in separate rooms.

Gently With the Painters. Chapter one. Husband at police station for three hours. I know, Mr Gently, Fred was only saying last nigh. ‘Have you been to the Golder’s Green Hip this week?’ ‘Oh yes, Mr Gently. Me and Olive went on Tuesday. They lived together in a flat about a mile from the scene of the crime, but they lived in separation, sleeping and eating in separate room. What would you like to follow, Superintendent?’ That was something else which took a little swallowing.

One does not, by a stroke of brilliance, become a connoisseur overnight

After thinking about it, he referred Gently to a couple of dealers and to the Art School, but neither of these alternatives seemed to promise much on a Saturday. Instead Gently decided he would try his luck unaided - his judgement of pictures was far from professional, but clue in hand, he might ferret out something. One does not, by a stroke of brilliance, become a connoisseur overnight. One must learn to judge a painting as a surgeon does an appendectomy - not by the health of the patient but by the skill of the operation. Gently nodded his head woodenly.

Another great mystery by this great writer.

One of the better Gently novels, with a dark and menacing setting and hidden gold. There are two murders and Gently almost becomes the third. The book has good writing and the plot moves right along. As is common in this series, there is poetic justice and some of the criminals appear to get away without prosecution.

I am working my way through this series, and this was one of the best. Alan Hunter's particular genius with genre (and he does the weather so very well!) and making it part of the general mood of the piece manifests itself here again, but it gets under your skin. The cold, the isolation of each set of people, the darkness which is so much part of this mystery creates a detective story which just misses being really menacing.

The red herrings are plentiful and the ending is totally unexpected, but it shouldn't have been. It had me guessing to the last page, and the whole plot was superbly well developed. I loved it.
