Meet the Author

Hugh Johnson is the world's pre-eminent writer on wine. First published in 1977, his Pocket Wine Book sells hundreds of thousands of copies a year. His winning formula of insight, critical appraisal of the world of wine, plus valuable vintage news and wine recommendations has been often-imitated but never bettered.

With the publication of his first book, Wine, Johnson established himself at the age of twenty-seven as the most refreshing and authoritative voice on the subject. During the past four decades he has written books that have become landmarks on the subject, including his classic The World Atlas of Wine, co-authored with Jancis Robinson, his Wine Companion, first published in 2003, The Story of Wine and Hugh Johnson on Wine. In his spare time he writes about gardening from his home in London.

Today, l got my new glasses. I can finally see again! <br> <br> l have terrible vision. You know the letters you have to read at the eye doctor's office? I couldn't even read them with my glasses on. Terrible. I say l'm slowly going blind. When l put them on, everything, even the most simpl things, were ten times more beautiful. <br> <br> Not much happened today, other than the threat of snow. Well, at least southern people think of the percipitation as snow. They were all at Walmart, buying bread and milk. <br> <br> That's all, l guess.

What is this?! People are ostensibly writing about one of the great fantasy authors, Karl Edward Wagner, and instead they plug their pet books (silly detective novels, diet books, etc.). Can't you weed out this tripe? What a waste of time!

DI Wesley Peterson is summoned to investigate a possible murder in a hotel room. It looks like routine matter but then it is revealed that the man used a fake name and the man in question is linked to a cold case; the murder of a child in 1979. Now DCI Gerry Heffeman, recovering from a gunshot in the line of duty, and Wesley must find the killer, because more dead bodies are turning up... This is the first book I have read by Kate Ellis and I admit that starting with book 19 in a series doesn&rsquo;t feel like the most perfect start. But I never really had a problem with that because I was so enthralled with the story and the characters that I never had any real problem with not having read the previous books. Sure there is a lot of back history, but instead of being hindered by that I just found myself more curious of reading the precious 18 books. The plot was really good, there were lots of different things going on at the same time, the cold case murder, the murder at the hotel and an archaeological dig at a ruined village that tumbled in the sea during WW1, but all these happenings had connections to each other and let to a thrilling ending. I liked Wesley Peterson, he is a good police that knows he is spending too much time working and too little with his family and feeling guilty about it. I&rsquo;m looking forward to see how it will go for him in the future, especially since he is working with a DS Rachel Tracey who has feelings for him. He seems to be happy married but a close working relationship with a woman attracted to him can be dangerous, especially since his wife seems to be a bit jealous of Rachel&hellip;no smoke without fire... I'm really looking forward to read the previous books in the series since I can&rsquo;t to know more about his past and how it must have been coming to a little community as a black police after working at the MET. This crime novel was terrific, great story, great characters. Couldn't find anything with it that I didn&rsquo;t like!
