    Taut writing, gripping story, fast paced Godlefe s Cuckoo is a fantastic thriller Lots of action, intrigue, big cast of characters and yet somehow Bill Todd ties all those threads beautifully to produce a great read.With so many characters coming into play, lots of different action I had to really concentrate when ...

    This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. He lit another cigarette Popped the ringpull on another can of Stella This was pointless He could sit here forever debating the pros and cons like some poncy intellectual while all the time he knew what he would do Fuck it, those bastards had to be sorted out Anyway, you had to die of something.So Danny Lancaster is a former soldier, injured in the line of duty leaving him with one prosthetic see also, Cormoron Strike He didn t seem to know what to do with himself after leaving the army and ended up a small time criminal who did a little time in prison Then he started working as a P I I m not sure if he could have officially done that given his record, but I don t know He seems to have skirted the edge of legality through this career helping the police frequently, but a known associate of noted criminals see also, Rebus and Big Ger The picture I get is of a less intellectual, violent, and less alcoholic Matt Scudder Given that this is Book 6 in a series, Danny Lancaster is a pretty established character and the novel doesn t spend a lot of time exploring the character, mostly it s just using him Which makes sense, especially given the plot but that means I have to rely a bit than I normally would on extrapolating from what we re given and comparing him to better known characters When the book opens, he s been mi...

    If there s one thing this Ginger Book Geek loves, it s discovering new authors and Bill Todd is certainly a new author to me I must admit that prior to being invited to take part in the blog tour for Godlefe s Cuckoo , I hadn t come across Bill before After having finished reading the book, I cannot understand how the hell I have missed him until now Godlefe s Cuckoo is certainly a different sort of read and I thoroughly enjoyed it but about that in a bit.One of the main characters in this book is called Danny Lancaster, who is a Private Investigator I wasn t quite sure what to make of him at first especially as I learnt that he is actually supposed to be dead or missing, presumed dead There are five previous books in the Danny Lancaster series and I did feel as though I was missing something by not having read the five previous books That s not meant in a bad way but I am a tad obsessive and I love reading series in numerical order so I don t feel as though I am missing a crucial bit of information about past events The positive is the fact that I now have another five books to catch up on and I...

    Author and journalist Bill Todd is in his element, as he brings together a not too healthy cocktail of Russian terror in his latest offering of Godlefe s Cuckoo.His material could quite easily be the stuff of today s breaking news stories The Argus and the boys and girls in blue are already on the case.An explosion in a boat leaves an ex paratrooper mysteriously dead or missing at sea It almost feels like its author may have decided to give up on his trade and opt for a 2 deck chair on Brighton beach.But no, Bill breathes new life into our ace detective Danny Lancaster He is now fighting to save the lives of his mates who are being picked off one by one by mobster Star in s baddies in order to flush him out as a loose end, from a previous chapter in his life.Zaitsev, Kubanczyk, Abramov, Hansel and Gretel, are new ruthless characters who feel deadly real, each professionally hired killers in their own field with a mission to do away with our hero.With the odds stacked up against him, how is Danny going to save his friends Only an experienced writer with a well crafted storyline, a sound and aptly researched knowledge of the machinations...

    Sometimes you just know simply by the author s name that you re in for a cracking read And here we have it Bill Todd No nonsense Sounds like a great bloke, and even if he isn t, he sure can tell a damn good story This book has it all going on Mystery, intrigue or are they the same , anyway, it s the diversity of bustling Brighton that sets the scene for this fast paced seaside escapade, where Danny the Champion of the World meets Ladies in Lavender and I loved it I got slightly confused at the beginning with the flashbacks and newspaper clippings and character count but that s definitely me not you William May I call you William William Todd aye slightly posher version but sounding equally as nice a bloke I reckon Yup, proper story this An unlikely hero, baddies, lust, unorthodox D.I with a penchant for vibrators, and best of all, the writing was a joy A beginning A middle An end And the talent...

    This is a very fast paced thriller, with one of the best introductions I have read I love reading about legends, so this gem was a fantastic treat There are many characters that are central to the plot as the story unfolds I did have to concentrate quite hard to follow the action at times The weaker part for me was the...

    I nearly gave up after the first few chapters of this book as I got a bit confused with all the characters being introduced in a short space of time This could just have been me as I was a bit tired at the time I am glad that I kept going as it did get better as the story settled down and in the end it was quite a good read I did however find it a little predictable and wondered what DI Myers s sexuality had to do with the storyline as it added nothing to it as know one else seemed to know about it apart from h...

    You really need to concentrate well whilst reading this book as there are so many different characters it can be hard to follow if, like me, you stop and start quite a lot Apart from this it was a very fast moving thriller, with lots of action and mystery involved Overall a very good read.
