    1. This is the first of three planned books starring private detective Charlie Woolf.The story takes place in Brighton and the year is 1938.Charlie Woolf is neither a new Sherlock Holmes nor an action orientated detective.Nevertheless Woolf thinks a lot and sometimes it seems he moves in a circle.But there was something which forced me to continue reading. The story contains twists and turns.I was not sure how to rate the book. Finally I decided to give four stars.I will definitely read the second [...]


    2. This is a good old fashioned murder mystery. The first in a trilogy involving Charlie Woolf. The beauty of this one and the reason it caught my eye is it is set in Brighton. I have lived in the vicinity for many years and it was a fascinating read this particular story is set in 1938 and it certainly captured my imagination and it was fabulous to recognise so many of the haunts.Charlie makes his money sketching the public on the pier when he is offered a fair whack of dosh to do a delivery to [...]


    3. I voluntarily received an ARC of this book.This story is set in Brighton, 1938. Charlie ‘Big Bad’ Woolf thought the errand he was being sent on would be simple enough, plus it would earn him some decent money. He’d also be doing his old partner, Alan O’Connor a favour. So off he goes to London to hand over the envelope he’s been given. But curiosity gets the better of Woolf and he can’t resist taking a look at the contents of the envelope. What he sees is quite shocking. It looks lik [...]


    4. I received a copy of this book free of charge, in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.This is the first book in the planned Charlie (Big Bad) Woolf trilogy and having read the blurb, I thought this would be just my cup of tea.Late Whitsun is set in 1938 and centres around private detective Charlie Woolf - or Big Bad as one former colleague nicknamed him. The handing over of one small package was the only job he was asked to do, easy money he thought, but even nothing ever comes [...]


    5. Late Whitsun introduces us to Charlie Woolf, an artist / PI who finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation that he has to investigate himself. It is a brilliantly written mystery that kept me reading and kept me guessing right through it. The story is full of suspense, plot twists and false leads and I didn't figure out who it was until just before the end. Each character is really believable and adds something to the story. I love Charlie's character and I can't wait to read more abo [...]


    6. I have to admit i was a bit worried about reading this book, not only is it written by the author of my favourite books the Danilov quintet, but i also won my copy it sounds stupid but i was really worried i might not like it. I really needn't of worried though i really enjoyed it I like the era it is set in and the place, it has plenty of twists and turns without getting bogged down by them, also it is really well written it held my attention from start to finish. I am looking forward to readin [...]


    7. A neo hard-boiled. We're on the mean streets of Brighton, 1938. Charlie Woolf is our PI/quay-side artist. The atmosphere is insular. A couple of people die, but the crimes are pretty small time. A little blackmail, some fake foreign office intrigue, and a bad guy who could figure everything out except how to save himself. About the 80% mark Woolf puts it all together.


    8. Thanks to the publishers for sending me a copy and for asking me to take part in this blog tour, I have voluntarily reviewed this book! Well I don't know where to start. Late Whitsun is the first in the Charlie Woolf series, with more to come and I cannot wait to read the others already. I have awarded five stars as I thoroughly enjoyed this story, I loved it! I managed to read Late Whitsun in just two days, I was hooked!Late Whitsun is well written, fast paced and easy to read! I would highly r [...]


    9. t's been a while since I have taken part in a book tour. This is the first book tour in ages where the book has really grabbed my attention. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it and so am really pleased to be part of the tour.Set in Brighton just before the start of WWII, this book certainly manages to capture the atmosphere of the era. Brighton has always been an escape valve for Londoners looking for a bit of fun, innocent or otherwise, a place where naughtiness can happen and then be left beh [...]
