Andrew Cartmel's second adventure for The Vinyl Detective sees our hero searching for a rare record & a missing person. Cartmel's style is wonderfully easy to read & there are many moments when this novel just makes me smile again & again. The characters are as eccentric as ever, whet...

I really enjoyed Andrew Cartmel’s first VINYL DETECTIVE novel, WRITTEN IN DEAD WAX. It’s a geeky and blokey book which was lost in its own little world, and managed to be charming even as it was being preposterous. As there’s no doubting the fact that any story which sees the buying of second-han...

The second in a trilogy, The Vinyl Detective - The Run-Out Groove, is another well written, laugh out loud (well, I did) confident offering from Andrew Cartmel. Thrust back into the world of the Vinyl Detective (name of the character is, as yet, not revealed - which must be quite tricky for the au...

Another page-turner from Mr Cartmel, an author wonderfully adept at happy coincidences. This is easily as good as the first Vinyl Detective novel where we see the musical backdrop switch from obscure jazz to psychedelic rock. All our favourites from the first novel are back: Nevada, Tinkler, Clean...

The original book in the series Written in Dead Wax (The Vinyl Detective, #1) (my review) was a moderately amusing hipster murder mystery. I decided to give the author another chance. This was more of the same. Cartmel is a crony of Ben Aaronovitch. Aaronovitch is an author I'm familiar with. Like...

Another hugely enjoyable outing for the Vinyl Detective. Solid mystery, fun characters (old and new), and a story that keeps you turning the pages. Impossible to fault if you're after a light read.

I enjoyed the first book in the series, so was happy to see this. The Vinyl Detective is chasing down a missing child as well as a rare 45. This time he's searching through records from the psychedelic era. The characters are engaging, the plot was fun, and I enjoyed the writing. In between readin...

Great follow up to the first novel. I love collecting so this novel series hits the right geekness in mt plus a cracking storyline. More please! A real page turner with a real homely feel. Good twists and turns that set you guessing. More books please!

The story itself is alright, good pace and intriguing, and if he could write a half decent female character I would probably give this book 3,5 stars rather than 2. Gorgeous young seemingly successful and capable women keep throwing themselves at the main character within seconds of meeting him,...

I don't think this book really fulfilled its promise. It was an easy enough read but even towards the end i wanted to just be done with it. I think it introduced characters then forgot about them and suddenly thought oh we should bring so and so back into it. i just wanted more and i don't think...
