Des milliers de livres avec la livraison chez vous en 1 jour ou en magasin avec -5% de réduction "Flaxborough is Colin Watson's quiet English town whose outward respectability masks a seething pottage of greed, crime and vice. Mr Watson wields a delightfully witty pen dripped in acid. Arguably the best of comic crime writers, delicately treading the line between wit and farce. Funny, stylish and good mysteries to boot. Time Out. "A great lark, full of preposterous situations and pokerfaced wi. Cecil Day-Lewis. As always with Watson, the writing is sharp and stylish and wickedly funny!"

What people are saying about the Flaxborough series: "Colin Watson wrote the best English detective stories ever.

What people are saying about the Flaxborough series: "Colin Watson wrote the best English detective stories ever. They work beautifully as whodunnits but it's really the world he creates and populates. and the quality of the writing which makes these stories utterly superior. The Flaxborough Chronicles are satires on the underbelly of English provincial life, very well observed, very funny and witty, written with an apt turn of phrase.

Right at the bottom of the column, it was. Something for which she had not dared to hope. Not in remote, prosperous, hard-headed Flaxborough. A matrimonial bureau. Two women have disappeared in the small market town of Flaxborough. They are about the same age, both quite shy and both unmarried. As Inspector Purbright discovers the only connection between them appears to be the Handclasp House Marriage Bureau, but what begins as a seemingly straightforward missing persons case soon spirals out of control as Purbright encounters deceit, blackmail and murder. Lonelyheart 4122 is the fourth in Colin Watson's Flaxborough series and was first published in 1967. 'Flaxborough, that olde-worlde town with Dada trimmings.' Sunday Times 'Watson's Flaxborough begins to take on the solidity of Bennett's Five Towns, with murder, murky past and much acidic comment added.' H. R. F. Keating

A really clever idea for a book, well executed. Also the debut of the delightful character, Lucille Edith Cavell Teatime, a beautifully poised conman with impeccable manners, for whom London has gotten too hot. I especially enjoyed the ending, which was served up with masterful brevity.

How nice to find a new (to me) author of crime that has an interesting plot, memorable characters, no violence or profanity. I very seldom leave reviews but this is one you really shouldn't miss.

Best of the Colin Watson series on Flaxborough, but all twelve of the books should be read in order of publish date to get the full enjoyment of this mystery series. I highly recommend them for a clean, entertaining read.

One of his best! Watson brings the humor of human behaviour to crime detection.

In this funny British mystery, Lucilla (Lucy) Cavell Teatime, a charming con woman arrives in Flaxborough, decides to stay and takes on a grifter who meets his victims through a matrimonial agency. The agency has fallen under the watchful eye of Inspector Purbright who is investigating the disappearance of two middle age women who were previous clients of the agency. Now he is concerned with the safety of the agencies latest client, Miss Teatime. He decides to provide her “protection” in the form of two less than brilliant officers who are no match for the experienced and skilled lady who, it appears, is more than able to take care of herself.

This is my third time to venture into Purbright territory and I must admit each junket is more enjoyable than the last. These are quick reads that you can finish in an afternoon so if you’re looking for something lighthearted and enjoyable to fill a few hours LONELYHEART 4122 is just the ticket.

I'm reading this series in order and I am absolutely hooked. I have read that this is the best in the series, I can't say what's to come, but it's the best so far. Inspector Purbright is investigating the disappearance of women who had been clients of a matchmaking agency. When you read this, knowing that the author wrote it long before the internet, and read the flirtatious letters written back and forth, you'd swear the author had visited the 21st century and read through dating sties - only the medium has changed, the messages are the same. This isn't as witty as previous entries in the series, but it is more intriguing and not without wit. The twists at the end, heck even the very last line of the book, had me tapping my Kindle as fast as I could to keep up. Also, it's really fun to find an old series that I'd never heard about that is so enjoyable, thanks to Farrago publishing for the re-release.

When a local butcher visits Detective Inspector Purbright with the tale of his missing sister-in-law Lillian, Purbright remembers that recently another woman about the same age had gone missing. After searching Lillian’s home, he finds three letters from a suitor and a checkbook with a check made out to a local matrimonial agency, and he recalls the previous mission woman had also done the same.

After visiting the agency, Handclasp House, he acquires the name of a new client, Lucy Teatime. He sets his sergeant, Sid Love, to keep an eye on the lady in question while he searches for answers. Upon further investigation, he learns that there was a break-in at the the agency, and that the amiable Miss Teatime has been able to elude not only Sergeant Love, but another officer as well.

Convinced that the man who is courting Miss Teatime - for he is sure there is a man - is the same one who had courted the other two ladies who have still not been found, he is more than ever sure that there is a con artist at work who is not only fleecing these women of whatever means they have, but that he has something to do with their disappearance as well. And while it seems that Miss Teatime is sure the man she is seeing is not the same one Purbright has warned her against, he is. But will she be able to save herself before she meets the same fate, or will Purbright fail in rescuing her?

Once again we are visiting the market town of Flaxborough and the domain of Detective Inspector Purbright, and once again he is on the trail of a criminal, this time a man who joins a lonelyhearts club in order to fleece vulnerable women of their savings and then dispose of them. But he’s been elusive so far, and since he manages to change his appearance, no one can give a description. He also manages to meet in public places that seem ordinary at first, but in being so, no one pays him nor the lady much attention at all; and this is why his scheme has managed to foster so well.

But this time he’s come across two formidable adversaries: Purbright and the redoubtable Miss Teatime, who is nobody’s fool. In fact, Miss Teatime has a few secrets and surprises of her own which he doesn’t count on. It is once again a tale well-written with memorable characters who are lively and well-drawn, and a delight to read about.

When the ending comes we are given the requisite surprises that Mr. Watson manages to do so well; I would suggest that anyone reading his books does not jump to the end to sneak a peak at the outcome; it is so much more fun if you read the entire book through. I absolutely love these books and am looking forward to the next in the series. Highly recommended.
