Overview

Enigma by Wolf Black

This book is a good old-fashioned read.

Pure and simple.

When a serial killer starts preying on young mothers, it’s up to Love, and his sophisticated partner Stuart Le Fanu, to employ their MI6 state-of-the-art equipment along with good old-fashioned detective skills to discover the identity of the killer before he can strike again.
Enigma has the obligatory twists and turns leading up to a hair-raising yet humorous car chase through the stylish streets of south Kensington, London, in addition to placing the reader unreservedly in touch with real life.

And that’s the crux.

Wolf Black has stepped into his character’s shoes and brought them to life. He’s lived them, breathed them, adored them and argued with them. He clothed his characters with authentic attire right down to the sexy underwear hidden underneath their fashionable and not so stylish outerwear.

His fictitious photographic Nicéphore test has its roots based in reality. It’s named in honour after the Frenchman who produced the world’s first photograph. You don’t need to search far in this book for the veritable tie-in.

The author spent weeks trawling through London to find bona fide addresses for his characters and then went on to furnish the properties by patronising existing retailers. He pored over maps working out various routes his detectives would use. He calculated how long each trip would take and then undertook the journey himself. Half of the routes aren’t even mentioned.

But Black needed to know. Because he wanted to lend credence to his story. This, he has achieved.

Wolf Black is a pseudonym.

It's been her closest companion since 1989. But pity her not! Personally she's delighted she's competent in something.Rosemary also writes under her maiden name Rosemary Bach and her mystery crime writer's pseudonym, Wolf Black.

This was a rather tame police murder mystery. It is set in England, in a town near London. An american police officer and an english bobby, both detectives are on an exchange program. The exchange has been in place for five years. The editing was pretty good. There is no cursing or sex, although masterbation is hinted at. This book was free and is 350 pages. It would have been so much better if the men did not describe their clothes and shoes, the brands, the material it was made of, the cost in pounds of course, how modern, worn, popular, unpopular and/ or skanky. The men even described women's clothing down to the undies in this manner. The same with furnishings, home decorating and even wall color. Not even cars escaped this boring process of description. Worst of all, was when the men went shopping together, admired each others tastes and talked about hair styles. The author had these guys as hetrosexuals, but perhaps English men are different then men from the USA. They did solve the case, even though it was in a convoluted manner. The plot was average. This book made me crave a cup of tea and a plate of Little Debbies. For readers 16 and up, who enjoy English murder mysteries. AD

This book had possibilities, but the plot, characters and investigation all get lost between the author's digressions into details that have no purpose in the narration. Her lengthy and frequent discussions of the various characters clothing, furniture and cars, and the cost of each interrupt the flow of the story. Ihad the feeling that the author eas trying to cover a lack of knowledge about police procedures and investgative techniques by filling in what she does know. This is a self- published author who has some potential, but may never develop due to a lack of professional guidance. I got the impression this was a selfie, so I checked out "Wolf Black's" website and found it just as shallow as you might expect from someone whose idea of character development is discussing the cost of their underwear.

Enjoyed it. All though it did go on some every time the car parked, clothing descriptions, etc. Over all it was an enjoyable read.

Could do without repeated clothes and decor descriptions

I absolutely loved this book. So much so that I wrote to the author and told her so, something I never do. I would so love to have a sequel! If you like British mysteries, this is great.
