    1. Review Water of Death by Paul Johnston 3.5 s This is an older novel but I found it kept me interested until the very end It was well written and I enjoyed the characters The author created a somewhat humorous mystery in a near future setting in Edinburgh, 2025 It was a who done it plot with clever dialogue as a diversion that makes the story interesting and not so political When following the main character Quint Dalrymple, a former cop and chief investigator for the selected Council needs to p [...]

    2. Set in a post disaster, globally over warmed, water rationing, Edinburg of 2025, but written in 1999, there are some funny disconnects in technology that make you laugh I loved the characters and the various mysteries were very well plotted with lots of quirky distractions and side plots that kept me guessing There are a lot of books in the series but my library system doesn t have them so it will probably be hit or miss as to when I get to the rest of the series It will help with some of the lo [...]

    4. Having read this before I somewhat spoiled it for myself by remembering the twist which I suppose shows how good it was the first time round Still an enjoyable tale, based around water shortages, poisoning, damaged children and a complex love life for our hero

    5. Not much to recommend in sci fi procedural save for the situations caused by global warming and how Scottish society tries to adapt The actual plot is not very compelling.

    6. Crusty investigator, a pair of aggressive dames, burlies, psychos some of it is painted by the numbers, but it keeps up interest well.

    7. Very entertaining not a big crime fiction fan but the futuristic edinurgh setting was most enjoyable, will make a point of reading of quints adventures
