    I was sooo looking forward to this as I hadn t read any new Mad Max for ages Of course, I enjoyed it but I have to say it didn t grip me as much as usual the while I love the humour of these stories, this time, there were sometimes just too many quips I was sooo looking forward to this as I hadn t read any new Mad Max for ages Of course, I enjoyed it but I have to say it didn t grip me as much as usual the while I love the humour of these stories, this time, there were sometimes just too many quips

    Another engaging story of the sleuth history teacher With the collected characters and a who done it that all contribute to a good read at any time.

    Australian readers could probably be forgiven for slightly different expectations when sitting down to read a book labelled The New Peter Mad Max Maxwell mystery This isn t our Mad Max this is a particularly English style of Mad Maxthan a hemisphere away from our own version.Peter Maxwell is a History teacher, head of sixth form, and a slightly older man with a considerably younger partner, DS Jacquie Carpenter And a baby son Nolan, a love of bicycles, a decidedly cavalier attitude Australian readers could probably be forgiven for slightly different expectations when sitting down to read a book labelled The New Peter Mad Max Maxwell mystery This isn t our Mad Max this is a particularly English style of Mad Maxthan a hemisphere away from our own version.Peter Maxwell is a History teacher, head of sixth form, and a slightly older man with a considerably younger partner, DS Jacquie Carpenter And a baby son Nolan, a love of bicycles, a decidedly cavalier attitude to keeping ones nose out of matters that don t concern you, and an almost stubborn inability to leave well enough alone.Whilst this book isn t exactly a fit for the small English village style mystery, there s definitely a hefty dose of the English eccentric about Mad Max And there is a lot of humour in these books and there is absolutely nothing subtle about most of that To the point where it does get a tad annoying, as there s something very predictable about Max s behaviour Jacquie s reactions Jacquie s bosses exasperation everyone s relationship with young Nolan the kids from school that Max runs into Max s colleagues at school Jacquie and Max s unmarried state and all those other little elements the reader is constantly beaten over the head with.Now I will admit there were times reading this book that I could have lived with a whole lot less of the forced eccentricity of Mad Max, but it s not like the author makes any apology for that aspect of the books I ve read others before this one , and somehow, despite a niggling sense of irritation, Max is sort of endearing, and the quality of the plots, which aren t necessarily flat or single threaded make these books very readable Undoubtedly another candidate for readers who are looking for something on the lighter side, the humour will appeal to many many readers, as will Max s relationships with his students and his young son If you ve not read any of this Mad Max series and you like this very English style of book then I can recommend them As with most of these relationship based series, it wouldn t hurt to try to read the books in order, but it s also not going to matter that much if you dip in wherever you can get your hands on a copy

    Wonderfully funny and clever work in the Peter Mad Max Maxwell series Well worth starting the series at the beginning to catch all the nuances and characters in this volume, though.
