    eBook Joyce Porter â Dover One PDF Þ â dover ebok, inspector download, dover kindle, Dover One KindleHumor is an individual thing and as such this book may have been intended for someone with a vastly different sense of humor than mine Based on what I read about the book I was expecting this to be a humorous engaging mystery novel that offered a few laughs or at least some snickers and a mystery that stretched the limits of disbelief With some anticipation I opened the book and sat down to read What I experienced was a book so filled with characters devoid of anything positive As that unfolded the book uickly became an unpleasant read for me The best thing I can say about this book is that it is grammatically well written and the plot has a definite beginning middle and endThe chief inspector is a lazy bumbling policeman who spends the majority of his energy trying to figure out w

    eBook Joyce Porter â Dover One PDF Þ â dover ebok, inspector download, dover kindle, Dover One KindleA young girl goes missing and the local constabulary soon realizes they should probably call in the Yard It's just their luck that the Yard sends Wilfred Dover along with Sgt MacGregor to their aid When he arrives at the scene of the crime he's faced with an assortment of rather eccentric people and some who are just plainly weird who as it turns out all had a reason to do away with the girl He deduces that she didn't leave of her own accord and is either being held as a kidnap victim or worse she is dead Normally the wheels of Scotland Yard detection would begin turning in this case but Dover would much rather have a napThis is a ra

    eBook Joyce Porter â Dover One PDF Þ â dover ebok, inspector download, dover kindle, Dover One KindleThank you to NetGalley and Farrago for an e galley of this novelThis is my first experience reading one of the Dover mystery novels by Joyce Porter I think Chief Inspector Wilfred Dover of New Scotland Yard as a character needs to grow on me some

    eBook Joyce Porter â Dover One PDF Þ â dover ebok, inspector download, dover kindle, Dover One KindleChief Inspector Wilfred Dover is dreadful There is one reference to his wife in the book and it makes you wonder what kind of woman would be desperate enough to marry him He has lucked out enough to be promoted but again you have to wonder why His sergeant is a friendly intelligent man who doesn't deserve to be stuck with this curmudgeon I could hardly wait until I finished the novel It had fleeting moments of humor but mostly I had a hard time reconciling New Scotland Yard's willingness to put up with such an arrogant lazy bellyacher

    eBook Joyce Porter â Dover One PDF Þ â dover ebok, inspector download, dover kindle, Dover One KindleI received a free copy of this book with thanks to the author and Farrago and NetGalley The decision to review and my opinions are my ownAn overweight nymphomaniac teenage housemaid has vanished and Detective Inspector Dover is on the case barelyI have no idea how I managed to miss the Joyce Porter Dover series previously as I am an avid fan of classic murder mysteries and also of humour and this book has bothDI Dover is what you would get if the Poirot books focused on Japp instead of Poirot And if Japp was large lazy and thoroughly unpleasant to everyone he meets Oh and incompetent Even with the help of the – rather palatable – Sergeant MacGregor it is a wonder that Dover has ever managed to get a case solved as his techniue consists mainly of glowering at people and taking a nap I have never come across a character so completely unfazed by his own ineptnessThis series was originally published in the 60s so

    eBook Joyce Porter â Dover One PDF Þ â dover ebok, inspector download, dover kindle, Dover One KindleIn this day and age of social and political unrest in so many places in the world it is a bit difficult to put DOVER ONE into its proper place in history Let's start out with the fact the overweight and poorly groomed Chief Inspector Wilfred Dover is not a very nice man Then let's add a case in which he has no interest that centers around Juliet Rugg who is described as standing 5 feet 3 inches tall in stiletto heels and weighs in at 16 stone that's 224 pounds in American yes I googled it So we start out with an unattractive police inspector with a misogynistic attitude toward a potential victim All of this would seem to place the action in the mid twentieth century before the words 'political correctness' were ever spokenHowever a thoroughly boorish and unlikeable protagonist does not necessarily make a book unr

    eBook Joyce Porter â Dover One PDF Þ â dover ebok, inspector download, dover kindle, Dover One KindleThis first in the Inspector Dover series appeared in 1964 and I was shocked to learn that some people consider it the best of the series In my view Porter had not yet hit her stride and the Dover we meet here is an anemic version of the truly bizarre character he would become Sure he's fat and lazy and badly dressed and inclined to grab at any straw in order to pin the murder on someone ANYONE and put his feet up But Dover addressing the public and even other coppers as Sir and Madam takes some getting used to I for one am happy that Porter let out her corset stays and allow
