    1. This book rounds out my 2017 reading challenge, to bring the total books I read to a nice, round number Neat and orderly, and I found this book as I was organizing my next year s reading list on Kindle What an absolute surprise and joy to read this was Here we have seven delightful short mystery stories written in the first person that are filled with hilarious British isms, very well developed and strong characters, and believable tales I greatly appreciate the short, right to the point sentenc [...]

    2. Loved every one of the stories in this book I really enjoyed the stories and the characters in this series, I didn t want it to end The I read the engrossed I truly fell in love with the main character, Crampton and even liked his crotchety editor Would highly recommend.

    3. After reading Peter Bartram s first book Headline Murder , and the short stories about Colin Crampton and his crime solving adventures, I was eager for the next release Murder at the Newsdesk , I m pleased to see, delivers the same intriguing, page turning, witty writing that Bartram s previous work does I see the next book in the series is coming out in August so I wont have to wait long for my next Colin Crampton fix

    4. I chose this book to read and review as part of the Crystal Lake Publishing Readers Book Club April challenge and I m glad I did.Though it s a novella sized book of seven short stories there are two weightier tales, The Mystery Of The African Charity and The Mystery Of The Phantom Santa These bookend the much shorter stories and this is a brilliant layout as having the longest story at the beginning gives the reader a chance to familiarise themselves with the main characters, this, in turn, make [...]

    5. I thoroughly enjoyed Peter Bartram s latest edition of fictional journalistic capers featuring the popular investigative news reporter, Colin Crampton These stories follow a similar guise to the author s previous book, Headline Murder, but rather than concentrate on one plot it focusses on Colin s daily routine leading him to determine the factors that make a good story While some tip offs fail to make the fictional crime headline in the newspaper that week, others make incredibly interesting sn [...]

    6. Nice short storiesIf your after an interesting story but don t really have the time for a full on novel then these little bite size mysteries are just the ticket And currently there is a link at the end of the book for another free novel direct from the author which is nice.

    7. I have mixed reviews about this books It s really well thought out, but the execution could have been better This book has seven short stories, they were all nice, but I wished they were longer so we could also work out the clues as the story proceeded But there are certain stories wherein that opportunity is there.The Two Suitcases story had a very strong resemblance to a Roald Dahl adult short story, but again, the execution could have been better Maybe it is unfair to compare to Dahl.Having s [...]

    8. I think this is one of my first short story books I feel that overall it s a nice little read I enjoyed the realistic plots, makes a difference to not have to suspend your sense of disbelief for every page you turn I warmed to the man character throughout the book with his war, charm and wit.I do feel it was lacking in detail and strong plots A few of the stories were entirely pointless as in there was no real storyline line that could really make me care In saying that I did enjoy this easy rea [...]

    9. This is actually a collection of short stories that all involve the escapades of a crime correspondent on a newspaper Readers get to follow along as Colin Crampton tells the tales of some quirky stories he has covered while doing his job The stories are quick, fun reads and I think readers will enjoy all of them,

    10. An excellent and entertaining read I d give it a five, but some of the stories fell a bit short on inspiration Most were wonderful, especially the African Clothing Charity and the Phantom Santa If you re looking for a nice relaxing read from a well established author, this is it

    11. Newsman Solves CrimesWhile looking for a good crime story, journalist continually stumbles on tips that lead to both a good story and arrest Written like short newspaper articles, each chapter is a complete story.

    12. Short short stories.This was an interesting set of stories Some of them were only a few minutes long but were a full little mystery Very well written and complete and filled with English slang and based in the 1960 s On the last page you are offered a free novella.

    13. Compact, cozy, comedic read Colin Crampton is very funny and I enjoyed reading all the British Aussie slang Some of these are VERY short, so don t expect in depth mysteries, but it s still a fun read on a rainy night with a cuppa by your side

    14. These aren t really novellas, just short stories a couple of them SHORT short stories Still, they are Peter Crampton, skillfully crafted and quite fascinating I ve read 3 of the full length books, and loved them all Let s face it, Crampton is a fun read anytime.

    15. Keep the news coming The great story and the great news was right on It was so good to read some great news stories Thanks for the beginning to the end

    16. Good readNice selection of short stories that still keep the whodunit mystery right to the end.Each is something a bit different and not all involve murder as the title suggests

    17. Better watch the news Quirky tales of a newspaper crime reporter how he acquires some of his information to solve crime mysteries while also reporting the news.

    18. Great read Short stories, this book is perfect to just dip into I really enjoyed it I m looking forward to reading from this Author.

    19. I liked it enough to get another by the same author don t usually like shirt stories much The writing is instantly engaging, the main character downright lovable Plots are interesting.

    20. Breezy Crime Tales Crime correspondent Colin Crampton s nose for news as well as his curious stroke of luck makes him the envy of crime reporters everywhere Except that Colin Crampton is a fictional character He reports for the Evening Chronicle in Swinging Sixties Brighton, and is so well known to the local police that they often share tips with him He appears to dominate the Brighton crime scene and has, on a few occasions, even helped the police to solve a crime through his investigative work [...]

    21. Let s Do The Time Warp There s an old phone on the front cover and a tell tale title This must be a collection of short stories based on a life of crime reporting that is The book features some convoluted plots with a dash of humour All good so far Judging by the language and the settings, the crimes the stories are based on came from the Fifties or Sixties Dave Clark was on the jukebox in one story so that seems to place them okay Suddenly there was a reference to the Mexican Wave My memory tel [...]

    22. Seven short stories from Peter Bartram s Colin Crampton of the Chronicle mystery series.Engaging set of cozy short stories from the 1960 s Ace Crime reporter Colin Crampton of the Brighton Chronicle.My first taste of the Crampton of the Chronicle series Well written and plotted stories.And quite enjoyable to read.If you like the review and would like to read reviews on other books I have made, visit my blog at finalchapterreadersgroup.wordpres like, comment and follow.

    23. Very poorThere are lots of stories in this book but they are not particularly well written or thought out There s nothing in them that keeps you guessing and there s nothing that makes you want to guess They Bob along quite nicely then all of a sudden jump to the conclusion.

    24. Great storiesEven though some of these stories only covered a few pages, they re quite detailed They re also very funny in parts too I think if Colin Crampton were ever to change occupation, he d make a good detective.

    25. Enjoyable readThese fast paced short crime stories set in 1960s Brighton were an enjoyable read I liked the author s writing style light hearted story lines with a touch of humour.
