    The plot of this novel quickly gained my attention There were a number of paths the story could have travelled Unfortunately, It seemed to take a few wrong terms It all ended rather gruesomely I wonder about how much plot development Corris puts into his stories, especially this one There were a number of well developed characters, however, as the novel unfolded the story became somewhat crowded with characters I find this happens with a number of Cliff Hardy stories.One is given a geograp The plot of this novel quickly gained my attention There were a number of paths the story could have travelled Unfortunately, It seemed to take a few wrong terms It all ended rather gruesomely I wonder about how much plot development Corris puts into his stories, especially this one There were a number of well developed characters, however, as the novel unfolded the story became somewhat crowded with characters I find this happens with a number of Cliff Hardy stories.One is given a geographical tour a variety of Sydney suburbs and southern coastal parts of that fine city of Newcastle Corris captures the look and feel of Dudley, Red Head, Lake Macquarie area.I wish I had Cliff s ability to bed attractive ladies as quickly as he does.Corris has great turn of description In the opening scene he is in a Paddington pub He described the patrons asthe crowd was youngish and mixed Men and women and a few indeterminates, gays and straights Here and there I spotted a face old enough to remember Bob Menzies and 6 o clock closing, not many Some wouldn t even remember Bob Hawke In another, he describes the chance of morning showers depended if you were about to play a round of golf or you grew roses.The book held my interest till the last chapter The story had the feel of Corris wanting to finish it, so the villain was finally introduced, a few people died and that was it Mental health was used as the reason for numerous deaths I enjoyed most of the book but found the ending somewhat out of place in a Corris novel

    Not my favorite Cliff Hardy outing I found the violence and sadness in this story excessive, even for Corris But it is noteworthy in that Cliff finally gets a computer Pretty much of a downer, but worth reading, I suppose, if you are as committed to the series as I am.

    Entertaining setting in Sydney but old Cliff is not a man for metoo times Ebook from BorrowBox.

    Salt and Blood is a typical mystery murder with interwoven subplots only revealed at the last moments It was good to have an Australian story to listen to again Having a story set in Australia and written by an Australian made it evenenjoyable I will look for Cliff Hardy Peter Corris titles both audio and hard copy booksoften in book stores now the.The only negative in the book was the language I do not consider myself a prude and have worked many years in rough environments wh Salt and Blood is a typical mystery murder with interwoven subplots only revealed at the last moments It was good to have an Australian story to listen to again Having a story set in Australia and written by an Australian made it evenenjoyable I will look for Cliff Hardy Peter Corris titles both audio and hard copy booksoften in book stores now the.The only negative in the book was the language I do not consider myself a prude and have worked many years in rough environments where the degree of language, as exhibited in this book, did not prevail

    ugh some bits are good, but this one is too destructive for me not dark in a compelling way, for me I don t know how often you have to have the detective fail badly, destructively, in these series, to keep the reader from feeling we re reading the same script again and again bit I don t think that s enough for me to go with an ending like this I am a Pollyanna in these matters, or whatever would be aneutral term for that.

    The same as his other P.I novels I enjoy the glimpses of Sydney because I come from there myself, but somehow this story was not satisfying The plot seems too improbable and it s not as if I lost track of it I read it in a few days.
