What a delightful and elegantly written book. The crime was intriguing, the characters brilliant and vivid, the writing stylish! I couldn't put this down until I had read to the final full stop. I had to have a couple of goes before it would upload to my Kindle but it was worth the wait and I'm certainly recommending this title to others and looking out for more books by the author.
What an amazing book!

I'm impressed by your diligence and versatility, and I have been much diverted by Death by Duck. The characters are an interesting and comic lot, their interactions entertaining, and the travelogue aspects are particularly fun – it's always a bonus to be taken somewhere sort of exotic, and I liked the details (food, smells, clothes) that made them persuasive. I also liked the surprises that intersperse the story – the severed ear, for example. All in all, congratulations and thanks for an absorbing several hours waiting for the blizzard to arrive.

This book surprised me by how good it is. John's imagination spells out a compelling yarn, a good story well told. The trips to the Far East came in handy in the author's detailed, interesting descriptions of Mumbai and Hong Kong.
