Reviews - What do customers think about Pursuit and Persuasion (Ben Reese Mystery)?

A Great Read  Feb 11, 2008
Not being a reader of the mystery "who done it" genre I was surprised and pleased that I am having trouble putting done the Ben Reese series. He is a "kind of" Indiana Jones meets Agatha Christy meets Benjamin Frank Gates - much better than a movie.

Another thing - how often have you started a new book, had a long time period been books in a series or had to put a book down for a week and wished that the author a cast of charters at the front of the book (ala Harry Potter) - this book does...thank you Sally Wright.
Disappointing  May 7, 2006
I had high hopes for this series, but based on this one volume, I won't be looking for others. This book gets off to a good start, but doesn't maintain the excitement. It was hard to keep the multiple characters straight, and hard to care about the outcome, and the protagonist didn't even have enough personality to make us care about him. A surprising distraction is that the writer has some annoying tics that weren't corrected during the editing process, such as the term "at all" - spelled "a-tall" - being uttered every page or two by some character or other. Sorry, can't recommend this one.
Hearkens back to the Golden Age  Apr 26, 2001
This refreshing mystery series featuring American archivist Ben Reese hearkens back to the Golden Age of Dorothy L. Sayers, Margery Allingham, Agatha Christie and Ngaio Marsh. "Pursuit & Persuasion," set in the early 1960s, deals thoughtfully with the dangers of obsession and how it can lead us astray. The story opens in Oxford, just outside The Eagle and Child, the pub where C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and the other Inklings used to meet to read and discuss their books. Most of the action takes place in Scotland, and the author's descriptions of that land are vivid and evocative. If you're looking for a contemporary writer who crafts good traditional cozies, Sally S. Wright's well-plotted, deftly characterized tales may be just your cup of tea.
Edgar Award Finalist  Mar 7, 2001
This is an engrossing and complex book. Not actually my favorite of Sally Wright's three mysteries, but beautifully written as always. And, a finalist for an Edgar this year. Worthwhile.
Too many characters and subplots cause confusion  Feb 12, 2001
This book begins promisingly enough, with a suspenseful and foreboding first chapter. The death of Georgina, a professor, comes satisfyingly quickly and I settled down for an entertaining read. Unfortunately, the 2 1/2 page list of characters at the beginning of the book, along with not one, but two maps, should have served as a warning that this book would quickly become bogged down by too many characters and subplots. I found myself flipping back and forth to this list until I didn't care any more and saved myself any more trouble by flipping to the back of the book instead, thereby revealing the not particularly clever or believable ending.

This book was a disappointment - I don't recommend it.
