The stories in this collection are laced with light comedy. This is because Dick treats mystery and danger with a humor that is proper from a Tasmanian, defying the crude logic to try to solve the cases in any other way. The delightfully written stories and poems portray the special moments and beliefs of lovers in different situations, whether in the tropical jungles of Brazil in Passion Play or in the haunting story of The French Mirror.
Can love survive time? These situations can lead to the discovery of soul mateship and the changes in the mind and the life of lovers who inevitably learn about each other in their new life when they finally face true love.
The stories and poems pay tribute to special sentiments and feelings in a very passionate and loving way. They are meant for those fearless hearts that will always cheer love in any time of their life - even when choosing a book in the shelves of a bookstore. This collection of imaginative short stories is a worldly voyage into the distant past, and its rich and magic cultures, which together form an impressive historic mosaic.
Through the pages of the fictional stories we cross the subtle boundary of reality and imagination, transporting the reader to worlds long lost in time.
Whether in the pages of The Mammoth Hunters, an adventure of survival in the ice age of 30, years ago; the solving of A First Murder in the Ancient Egypt of Ramesses II; the story of The Odin Land Saga in the more recent past of the New World; narrating the epic which is The Fall of the Roman Empire; or discovering pirate plunder and stolen gold in The Golden Man, the reader is magically transported to long-lost cultures, becoming a witness to endless chronicles and breath-taking fiction. These exciting short stories offer the chance to grab a little knowledge of history as well as enjoying the adventure of the past.
The 'humour' missed me completely. I did not finish the book. As for being 'Tasmania's best detective', leaves me dismayed at the association. I found the writing style confusing and annoying. Never miss a good investigation by these detectives. As I have never been to that part of the world and never went further from my traditional detectives I did not have great expectations but only a mild curiosity. Reviews are great to reveal the feelings and reserves of readers and how these can be changed by writers, especially those who do not fear a good dose of humour, mixed with a great knowledge of the subject they present to us.
Here I have to acknowledge that I was completely taken by this unattractive, unorthodox detective who never misses the opportunity to unfold a good mystery. The fact he is treated with a little bit of disdain by the author, but despite all odds surpasses difficulties and uses the trial and error approach to deal with his lack of skills or his meagre means to come to unexpected results.
These results will undoubtedly lead the reader to constant enjoyment and delight is something I enjoyed immensely, and I did appreciate the sharp sense of humour in the stories that seems to be a Tasmanian characteristic.
