Piquant puns, suitable silly nomenclature, and audacious adventures enliven MacLeod's latest". Издание: перепечатанное, крупный шрифт.

A Peter Shandy Mystery. Nobody paid any attention to him, the bird had been far too large and much too white. Dr. Svenson was a student of Norse mythology, so his jokes tended to be on the obscure side. Owl-count protocol demanded that members of each team keep in single file; all at once Emmerick put on a burst of speed, snapping a twig under his foot to everyone else’s fury, and moved up toward the front of the line.

WHERE did they go? Get hold of yourself, Miss Buddley. Or let me talk to Calthrop. J He’s on the f-floor. Oh my God! Miss Buddley, listen. Oh my God! Miss Buddley, listen will be out there as fast as the Lord will let us. Have you phoned the Lumpkinton Police?. Lock the doors till they get there and make yourself a cup of tea or something. Thorkjeld Svenson was hacking at the cheese, slapping together big cracker sandwiches for them to eat on the way. Peter nodded, broke the connection, and redialed.

Author Charlotte MacLeod. A Peter Shandy Mystery. Stott shook his head, deliberately and ponderously, for he was not a man given to haste. That was not a barn owl.

Folks who Love MacLeod will love this book, too, but I've overdosed, perhaps. One does get enough Reality from the daily paper, but complete UNreality can be hard to deal with, too. As always, the Shandy crew has Vile Characters to subdue and Virtue triumphs and one more deserving couple finds each other.

Report an error in the book. Emory Emmerick comes to Balaclava Agricultural University as a scout for a television station. Although the faculty and students are hardly ready for prime time, Emmerick's interest is in environmental programming - a subject that inspires even the driest Balaclava professor to wax poetic.

A well written, humorous mystery full of interesting, quirky characters. Mabe a bit too quirky for belief which coupled with the frequently absurd use of hypnosis in the plot makes this a not very realistic story. Even so, I enjoyed it though I usually demand more realism in the mysteries which I choose to read.

The dialogue is witty and full of 10¢ words which I suppose, because of inflation, are nowadays often called $2 words. I do not believe that Ms MacLeod was showing off but instead used those words as humor. I found the use of the words fun and challenging, though I admit that I lookedup some of them.

My goodness! The FBI should assign a station to Balaclava County! Murder and kidnapping, mayhem and Tugboats!

Professor Peter Shandy and his friends investigate when newly minted Professor Winifred Banks finds trouble coming at her from all directions.

The annual Balaclava County owl count is disrupted when an annoying engineer who pushed his way into the party is killed. Scratching his head over why, Peter finds strange doings all over and they seem to connect to the Binks estate trust. Is it a takeover? Extortion? Murder? Mayhem? Or is it all of the above.

This one has much going on all at once with the strange interconnectedness of Balaclava. Enjoy!

This one's a lot of fun. The annual owl count at Balaclava College ends with a murder, a villain uses hypnosis to escape, and Peter Shandy and Thor wind up in a boat in the middle of the river during a heavy storm as the dam breaks. The brains behind all the villainy is quite a surprise.

I'm a Charlotte MacLeod fan, but more her Max Bittersohn/Sarah Kelling series than her Peter Shandy or other series. This Shandy mystery is a bit over-the-top, at points downright silly (the humor pales, in fact, rather early on); others in the series are better if you haven't read her or this series in particular before..

Folks who Love MacLeod will love this book, too, but I've overdosed, perhaps. One does get enough Reality from
the daily paper, but complete UNreality can be hard to deal with, too. As always, the Shandy crew has Vile Characters
to subdue and Virtue triumphs and one more deserving couple finds each other. It is what it is.

Enjoyable book that is more slap-dash comedy than it is mystery. Very unrealistic but even so, I loved it.

I started reading Charlotte MacLeod's books a long time ago. They are cozy mysteries that have a nice, stress-free pace. I like reading them when I don't want my heart to race, and I'm stressed out. The books are written well, the characters are well-developed, and they keep my interest.

Ms. MacLeod uses some unfamiliar, usually archaic, words in her books, so it is nice to have the Kindle dictionary available.
I enjoy Charlotte MacLeod's stories. In this series a Agricultural Professor ends up the unwilling unofficial Detective for the local Police Department. The College President orders Professor Shandy to solve the murder.
