    My impression of Ricky from the first book still stands he's too precious and how he managed to bumble his way into every step of the investigation and leave nothing for the second investigation was too much Still he was a nice change of pace from his too suave and bland Papa I'm glad he didn't turn too too much and become a jobbing detect

    In this late entry of the Inspector Alleyn series the focus is on Alleyn's son Ricky While the last third when Alleyn himself arrives on the scene was exciting I found the mystery itself a little obvious Wanda McCaddonNadia May did a decent narration but it wasn't as good as some of hers I have listened to

    I wish I'd discovered these during my long ago Christie phase because while I don't think Marsh's plots are as neat as Christie's her writing is better However I was still fairly meh about this one police procedurals are just not my cup of tea even though I like the charactersI may see if I can find the book or two which come after Artists in Crime out of curiosity to see the progress of Alleyn and Troy's romance but other than that I don

Anything but an accident And when Ricky himself disappears the case becomes a horse of a different color for his father Inspector Roderick Alle. This was a very enjoyable revisit with Roderick Alleyn s son Ricky The last time we saw him he was six years old Now he s twenty one and trying to find his own way as a hopeful writer of fiction My favorite parts were his interactions with his father and godfather Inspector Fox who are both anxious to keep Ricky out of their investigation even though he s already right in the middle of it by the time they arrive I didn t enjoy the emphasis on chasing drug dealers which has cropped up too often in Marsh s later books but it s certainly something relevant to the time period It s sad to think that I ll be done with the Alleyn books soon In spite of a few in the series that bogged down and had me wondering if I even wanted to keep going I m glad I stuck it out The later books have picked up and been enjoyable overall I definitely recommend this one The Wondrous And True Story Of Christmas the case becomes a horse of a different color for his father Inspector Roderick Alle.

Horseplay turns deadly Young Ricky Alleyn has come to the picturesue fishing village of Deep Cove to write Through the sleepy little town offers. A very entertaining book for me I only recently learned of Alleyn s son Ricky in the book Spinsters in Jeopardy where he is introduced as a very bright little 6 year old boy Whether he appears in any other books in the series I am unaware not having read all of them This book places Ricky at 21 front and center He is on a break staying as a boarder on an island where he believes he will live uietly concentrating on writing a bookA social connection of his parents found the place for him and also welcomed him to the island with dining at their impressive house along with outings that included horseback riding not a familiar activity for Ricky This sparkling socially adroit and very much married Julia becomes what is likely Ricky s first real crushThere will be police action of course but the spotlight is on drug trafficking again as it was in Spinsters As events conspire Alleyn will be called to manage the investigation there is a suspicious death of a horsewoman attempt on Ricky s life and later kidnapping of Ricky who ends up in the thick of thingsRather than give away the plotStrangely amusing description of one of Ricky s dinner partners when he first arrivedThen comes Miss Harkness She was a well developed girl with a weather beaten complexion and hands so horny that Ricky was reminded of hoovesAlleyn s reluctance to interfere where his son was stayinghis AC We haven t got anyone on the island so far The lead on Saint Pierre s only just come through What s the young chap doing there Rory Alleyn said very firmly He s writing a book sir He went over there to put himself out of the way of distraction and has set himself a time limit Writing repeated the AC dicontentedly A book And he added Extraordinary what they get up to nowadays isn t it One of mine runs a discotheue The AC went on to add that there was yet another coincidence at that island a riding fatality He then explained that the Super at Montjoy was down with a perforated appendix so there it was There s a funny noise It may be my teeth Grinding The AC gave a high whinnying laugh You can take Fox with you of course The final pages of this Felony Mayhem paperback includes a delightful extract from a collection of short stories by Marsh where she describes the creation of her character Roderick Alleyn
