Reviews - What do customers think about Material Evidence: A Cairnburgh Mystery?
WOW, what a surprise!!!!!! Aug 3, 2008
I read this book and was thoroughly thrown from the start to the end, which I may add I did not ever expect. Mr. Kirton certainly has a devious mind for plots and story lines and I will be looking forward to his next release which I hear should be out soon. Thanks for the great work and looking forward to much more.
Highly Recommended Jul 20, 2008
This book is the start of a realist detective series, which is a breath of fresh air. No quirky or weird personalities, nothing improbable. Just a good mystery to solve. The characters are very believable. He fooled me completely on the solution, and I was sure I had it right. I'll be getting the next when it comes out.
Material Evidence May 25, 2008
I thoroughly enjoyed the story. It was well thought out and well presented; so much so that I want to read more of this author's work. Compared to Ian Rankin's mysteries of which I've read most, there is a hugh difference in the types of people they write about. Ian seems more interested in presenting the seedy side of life in Scotland with his primary character's personality of someone whose ego seems to know no bounds.
