    The previous Gently books have seen him travel out from the Met police to a thinly disguised East Anglia this one is mainly set in and around London for a change The story concentrates on the aftermath of an Everest expedition than twenty years earlier and provide plenty of challenge for Gently to think about Written in 1960 it is very dated now but I still enjoyed the read

    This is the ninth in the series about the genial but sharp eyed detective George Gently and just in case anyone out there is paying attention yes I did miss out number eight OK so I got confused alright? There are forty something in the series so this is a problem that's only likely to get worse One thing that's interesting about reading the whole seuence in order well or less is the subtle but noticeable change in approach In the early bo

    I read this book because I love the BBC series based off of these books Overall I thought it was good and the mystery was really twisted and the outcome was not at all what I expected it to be It was well written

    These are a little dated at the best of times but this mountaineering plot just dragged I found it hard to keep track with the various relationships especially the women and the descriptions of the scenery and routes walked up Snowdon just dragged It all made sense at the end when Gently summarises it but overall a weaker book for

    uirky story about the reappearance of a mountaineer who disappeared during an Everest expedition Gently has to determine whether the man is who he claims to be and whether he is involved in the suspicious death of a fellow mountaineerI generally enjoy the Gently series they are gentle undemanding stories with a uiet and likeable protagonist This one was for me superior to the others I've read There are two plot lines that you k

    Hm This one was of a whodunit which I don't like as much And it got too convoluted with red herrings which is typically how I feel about whodunits This one did successfully misdirect me though and the story eventually revealed was interesting than we'd started with it's possible that a reread some time might be satisfying Below is my rambli

Gently to the Summit

Mount Snowdon in an apparent accident but the feud that had developed between Fleece and the resurrected Kincaid sparks a murder investigation for George Gently with a 'dead' man as the prime suspec. Hm This one was of a whodunit which I don t like as much And it got too convoluted with red herrings which is typically how I feel about whodunits This one did successfully misdirect me though and the story eventually revealed was interesting than we d started with it s possible that a reread some time might be satisfying Below is my rambling notes but Goodreads private notes field has a foolishly small size limitThoughts early in the bookWill this be the first one to not take place in Norfolk At all I love that the series is a portrait of Norfolk I just suspect that Hunter will vary it at some point It could be a really good thing too if done in a way that acknowledges that it s an excursion If we just got a routine case set in London or some other county with no acknowledgement of departure I think that would suck Having read a bit now this case seems uite non routine it will seem a fitting departure if that s what we indeed get Of course I don t know if the series will continue to be mostly about Norfolk I m suspecting it most often will be And adjacent locations wouldn t break the mold too much I don t know if the thought of Suffolk would make Hunter cry What But to me it could be a fairly natural expansion yeah it looks like this is never going to Norfolk maybe he ll go fishing at the end but that could be in Wales too another nice thing that Hunter is varying through the first several books the local cops are most often straw men who scoff at everything Gently says it s a nice counter to that that the Welsh inspector Evans here goes overboard agreeing with every thought that Gently voices Even though plenty of them are not meant as solutions to the case but rather to puncture other police theories or the claims of the suspects witnessesEvans may be a type of the mercurial Celt But there are plenty of types here and he s very likeable

review Gently to the Summit

To his fellow climbers when he turns up again 22 years later and the mystery is compounded by the death of Arthur Fleece Kincaid's climbing partner on the Everest attempt Fleece falls to his death on. 42 WORD REVIEWGently is an outlier in detective fiction focussing less on clues and procedure and on the resonance of each mystery Hunter gives him a brooding melancholy and an almost mystical approach to interviewing persons of interest Wincott s reading captures the spirit
