    Kindle ar1web.co ð Duffy Kindle Ç duffy ebok, Duffy EpubThis was a good story and my first by this author but it wasn't the kind of intriguing hard to solve mystery that I normally likeEveryone in the story was kind of seedy to a greater or lesser degree and not in a lovable rogue kind of way either None of the characters were particularly appealing no heroes here just a group of shady cops and shady criminals trying to outwit each other and yet working alongside each other This book was written in 1980 and so it is unsurprising that it has a Sweeny feel to it is British yay and manages to capture the kind of bad image that British policing had in the UK in the eighties especially in the citiesDuffy is an ex cop He was pushed out of his job for crossing the line Not the ethical lines the police should have but the unethical lines of loyalty and not making waves for his superiors Four years later fi

    Kindle ar1web.co ð Duffy Kindle Ç duffy ebok, Duffy EpubThis is Philip Marlowe for the latter half of the twentieth century Duffy has a rude mouth an unruly libido and a knack for getting into trouble He also has an awesome sometimes girlfriend named Carol who flies in the face of not much screen time and What These Characters Usually Are to become my hands down favorite The situations were so gritty and nasty I'll never look at cheddar cheese the same way againNicely done Julian BarnesI meanDan Kavanagh

    Kindle ar1web.co ð Duffy Kindle Ç duffy ebok, Duffy EpubDuffy the first novel in a British PI series from author Dan Kavanagh caught my attention mainly because Kavanagh is the pen name for none other than Julian Barnes and when you consider how serious his recent novel is you realise that an author’s writing life consists of very specific phases I’ve been a fan of Barnes for many years–loved Flaubert’s Parrot and Staring at the Sun so Julian Barnes writing a crime series? I’m in The series was published back in the 80s and that probably explains why the tone reminded me so much of Before She Met Me a Barnes novel published back in 1982 Duffy begins very strongly with a bizarre home invasion Mrs McKechnie a middle class woman who would seem to have no enemies whatsoever is tied up and cut by two men It’s a very professional job except for what happens to the cat and the incident seems to be a message for Brian McKechnie a London businessman who sells party items at his drab little London offi

    Kindle ar1web.co ð Duffy Kindle Ç duffy ebok, Duffy EpubI enjoyed this book was hovering between three and four starsIt's not really a mystery of a detective story There's no revelations just events and it ends abruptlyOn the positive side this is I believe the first book I have read with a bisexual

    Kindle ar1web.co ð Duffy Kindle Ç duffy ebok, Duffy EpubI read this because Kavanagh is a pseudonym of Julian Barnes whose writing I admire This however is not especially great It is a 1980 detective story involving a seedy private detective called Duffy the area around Soho in London and a fairly lightweight tale of protection money prostitution rather gratuitous use of fluid sexuality and crime in Croydon It spawned a short series based on the character of Duffy No

    Kindle ar1web.co ð Duffy Kindle Ç duffy ebok, Duffy EpubDespite some occasional instances of violence Duffy seemed like a cosy mystery to me Laid back in many ways the characters are charmingly inept Nick Duffy is a former cop left under a cloud turned private security entrepreneur running on a shoestring laconic Even the police seem laid back or even obtuse on occasion Yet I raced through the story unable to set it aside
