Leaps of Faith

Just finished reading In the Blood by Steve Robinson. I found it quite an enjoyable, light-hearted read. My criticisms are that I had an unfortunate image of Jefferson Tayte as looking like Sergeant Bilko and the image became even worse when he was compared to Larry Hagman, both comical figures in my book, so hard to take seriously. That was also the problem with several situations in the book when Tayte should have been dead and buried many times, but the story had to continue of course. Also the way Tayte moved around the area was hardly credible, but if you like your crime light-hearted you got over that. I also found there was a lot of packaging in the book, descriptions of landscapes, rooms, inns, people, etc, which were nothing to do with the plot. Some of the people in the plot were also hard to place in whether they were in the skulduggery class or goodies. I feel I am being very critical but these were the things that irked me and I don't want to give the impression it was a load of rubbish, I quite enjoyed it. A commendable first book, wish I could do as well!
