With the exception yet more odd, dated regional stereotyping it was fairly inoffensive and even had a certain charm, but the characters are ever so flat. Gently doesn't strike me as having much of an inner life beyond sweets, tobacco and fishing and the writ Having finished this, I've now worked my way through the 3 book boxset I received a few years ago also including 'Gently does it' and 'Gently by the shore'. Gently doesn't strike me as having much of an inner life beyond sweets, tobacco and fishing and the writing isn't clever enough to make his bumbling approach entertaining.
Sedate rather than exciting. May 23, Rich rated it it was amazing. Another detective novel in the shape of George Gently. I found this one picked up much more compared to the previous book. I was captured by the genius in which the crime happened and the way Hunter kept me guessing throughout.

Gently is a character I always enjoy, and there is constantly great colour in the supporting cast. On this outing however, the 'dialect' did get in the way of my enjoyment sometimes.

Apr 27, Mumbler rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is a mess, in the way it shows some clear clues, and acts as if the detectives can't see them.

An unrecognizable corpse in a burnt out yacht begins the start of another case for George Gently.
