Reviews - What do customers think about Blood And Fire: The Duke of Windsor And the Strange Murder of Sir Harry Oakes.?

Not again  Dec 21, 2007
More rubbish masquerading as mystery novel. The only mystery here is why a publisher would waste paper on this superficial and amateurish effort.
What was the point of this book?
The last big Bahama scandal before Anna Nicole  May 16, 2007
This book is an account of the sensational murder of North American millionaire Harry Oakes in 1943, and the subsequent framing, trial, and acquittal of his son-in-law. I thought this would be a fascinating book, but the author has a weak, erratic style, and I found it all frustrating and long-winded. Even the author's theories of the true perpetrator were a bit vague. The book does give insights into Nassau's old servile colonial character, now happily long gone, and tantalizes with well-founded suspicions about the Governor of the Bahamas -- the Duke of Windsor -- a truly outrageously misguided and weak individual.
Leaving no stone unturned  Feb 20, 2007
Author John Marquis leaves no stone unturned in his forensic investigation into the murder of the richest man in the British Empire.
So atmospheric are John Marquis's descriptions of downtown Nassau, capital of the Bahamas, that we almost feel like mopping our brows in the steamy heat as we watch him probe a sensational killing in 1943.
Mercilessly he lays open the part played in the shadowy events by the islands' governor, the late Duke of Windsor.
And with recently-acquired information, this book takes us as close as anyone has come to unravelling one of the murder mysteries of the century.
Fascinating, absorbing and quite possibly worrying for several people.
Entertaining and Informative  Mar 25, 2006
As a teacher it is rare that i find a book that is both entertaining and informative. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Suspenseful murder mystery that will keep you wanting more!!!  Mar 25, 2006
I received this book as a Christmas present and could not put it down. It is an excellent read and i highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed.
