Présentation de l'éditeur

The first four titles in the George Gently series at a great price.


GENTLY DOES IT: The last thing you need when you're on holiday is to become involved in a murder. For most people, that would easily qualify as the holiday from hell. For George Gently, it is a case of business as usual. The Chief Inspector's quiet Easter break in Norchester is rudely interrupted when a local timber merchant is found dead. His son, with whom he had been seen arguing, immediately becomes the prime suspect, although Gently is far from convinced of his guilt. Norchester City Police gratefully accept Gently's offer to help investigate the murder, but he soon clashes with Inspector Hansom, the officer in charge of the case. Hansom's idea of conclusive evidence appals Gently almost as much as Gently's thorough, detailed, methodical style of investigation exasperates Hansom, who considers the murder to be a straightforward affair.Locking horns with the local law is a distraction Gently can do without when he's on the trail of a killer.


GENTLY BY THE SHORE: You'll find plenty of bodies stretched out on a summer beach - but they're not usually dead...In a British seaside holiday resort at the height of the season, you would expect to find a promenade and a pier, maybe some donkeys, 'Kiss-Me-Quick' hats, candy floss and kids building sandcastles. You would not expect to find a naked corpse, punctured with stab wounds, lying on the sand.Chief Inspector George Gently is called in to investigate the disturbing murder. The case has to be wrapped up quickly to calm the nerves of concerned holidaymakers. No one wants to think that there is a maniac on the loose in the town but with no clothes or identifying marks on the body, Gently has a tough time establishing who the victim is, let alone finding the killer. In the meantime, who knows where or when the murderer might strike again?


GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM: Time spent messing about on the river isn't supposed to end with a brutal murder.The staff at Stoley's Boatyard were used to holidaymakers returning their pleasure cruisers a little late after a week or so exploring the network of waterways around Norchester. They were not used to finding their yachts burned almost beyond recognition with the charred remains of a client still aboard.Taking on the murder investigation, Chief Inspector George Gently faces an enquiry like no other he has ever handled. Somewhere beneath the lies of the victim's wife, somewhere obscured by the brittle edge of her daughter's fear, somewhere hidden by her son's hysteria, lies the truth. Gently's only hope is to sweep aside the litter of chaos and confusion to uncover the identity of the killer.


LANDED GENTLY: Having been invited to spend Christmas in the country, fishing for pike, Gently finds himself hunting a completely different predator when a guest at Merely Hall, a nearby stately home, is found dead at the foot of the grand staircase on Christmas morning.At first the tragedy is assumed to be a simple accident, but Gently is not one to jump to conclusions and is soon in no doubt whatsoever that this was murder. Merely produces the finest tapestries in England but the threads that Gently must unravel in his investigation are more complex than any weaver's design, with everyone from the lord of the manor to his most lowly servant falling under suspicion.

First two books used rather stereotyped characters and were
Considerably dated. Second two were more mature, with subtler characterization. Hunter has a sly sense of humour and a delicious turn of phrase which makes these books worth reading.
All other policemen (except Gently) predictably stupid and imperceptible.

this is perfect for the kindle. Four books, one low price and a very good read indeed. the characters are a bit different from the wonderful tv series, but just as appealing and entertaining.

After watching the TV series videos, it's easy to picture George Gently. The character was portrayed in the videos exactly as Alan Hunter described him in the books. I'm happy to have found this writer, and I hope that more of the books will be done in the Kindle format since my local library doesn't have the books. I live in the USA.

HASH(0x8e59c4f8) étoiles sur 5 The Inspector George Gently Novels 31 mai 2013

I don't know anything about Alan Hunter, and only knew of his famous detective from the television series. It was therefore with some trepidation that I bought these four novels. I thought that, at worst, I could spend some time with a favourite character, no matter how poorly crafted.

Imagine my surprise, then, when I was treated immediately to some of the most beautiful and evocative prose I have ever read. The writing hums with quiet and, more importantly, sympathetic intelligence. The actors and scenes are painted with such a deft hand that one feels that they have been injected straight into the mind, and yet, one is still capable of noticing a startling gift for original description.

Why have I never heard of this man? It's a mystery. It should be noted, however, that these books are not.They are police procedurals. More than this, though, I found them to be that pleasantest of surprises - entertainment that qualifies as art, even though it didn't have to.

These books will fill the bill, after you've read everything by Sayers, Marsh, Allingham, et. al., and you need a good British crime fiction fix.

Been a bit late finding Alan Hunter......have actually only just read the first of the 4 in this volume but loved every minute of it.Very British, as I am, so perhaps that is why I liked it so much
