    Max Castillo former priest and present P.I. leads a simple life

    Max Castillo former priest and present P.I. leads a simple life on his houseboat on a river in Spain and he just wants peace and quiet. But when his former employer needs his help he can't decide if he wants to work or try to figure out what to do about his vices of drinking, gambling and his loss of faith. The storyline is quite accomplished and believable,I really did not know who did it until the end. I feel L.H. has a great feel for writing creatively and how to expand on his characters stories.
    I would definitely recommend this book to others and can not wait to read more by L.H. Good Work!!!

    Excellent and fun read

    This author is fabulous - with a great command of prose and knowledge of different localities and cultures among which the story is woven.

    I enjoyed the Quinn series and hoped for more. But turned to the Max Castillo series and thoroughly enjoyed this story.

    I applaud the author's command of good grammar and parts of speech to include the subjunctive tense. However, the author might want to add an editor or two more - as many typos (no big deal) but a few simple parts of speech that I find distracting went missed. For ex -- objective vs subjective form of pronouns ie. " between he and I" rather than "between him and me" as it should be -- and the use of the conjunction "BUT" that contrast or contradicts when none exists. For ex. "he was not a nice man BUT when he turned up dead - I was happy..." (paraphrased) This showed up a number of times when the conjunction "AND" ought to be used.

    I don't mean to be an English teacher here (and I am not) - but I love the classic authors whose stories are so enhanced with excellent and fluent speech. LH Thomson is so much better than many of the ebook authors I have encountered and I thought I'd pass this little detractor on. Find someone to edit who really knows English grammar and composition.

    I wouldn't ordinarily bother to pass these comments along, however, this author has so much more promise than many - very entertaining style and a talent to develop completely different characters, context, and story lines - all coherent.

    Plus, I'm finding a kindred soul in the chosen back drops and prevailing philosophies.

    Uncertain

    Will archive this and will pick up another time. Hard to get going. Is slow in getting the story going. Too much detail which detracts from the story. Made it up tp chapter 3 and had to call it quits temporarily.
