Description

This book is a good old-fashioned read.

Pure and simple.

When a serial killer starts preying on young mothers, it’s up to Love, and his sophisticated partner Stuart Le Fanu, to employ their MI6 state-of-the-art equipment along with good old-fashioned detective skills to discover the identity of the killer before he can strike again.
Enigma has the obligatory twists and turns leading up to a hair-raising yet humorous car chase through the stylish streets of south Kensington, London, in addition to placing the reader unreservedly in touch with real life.

And that’s the crux.

Wolf Black has stepped into his character’s shoes and brought them to life. He’s lived them, breathed them, adored them and argued with them. He clothed his characters with authentic attire right down to the sexy underwear hidden underneath their fashionable and not so stylish outerwear.

His fictitious photographic Nicéphore test has its roots based in reality. It’s named in honour after the Frenchman who produced the world’s first photograph. You don’t need to search far in this book for the veritable tie-in.

The author spent weeks trawling through London to find bona fide addresses for his characters and then went on to furnish the properties by patronising existing retailers. He pored over maps working out various routes his detectives would use. He calculated how long each trip would take and then undertook the journey himself. Half of the routes aren’t even mentioned.

But Black needed to know. Because he wanted to lend credence to his story. This, he has achieved.

Wolf Black is a pseudonym.

    What a load of rubbish. If I had wanted to read a fashion magazine - I would have. I thought it a serious crime story but turned out nothing more than an advertising of the writers ability to shop!! Do not waste your time on this boring drivelling book if you are a serious reader.
  • Too many cups of tea

    The writing was good and very descriptive. However in every chapter cups of tea were made and drunk. Don't know if author is from US or is British, but the tea thing was overkill. We didn't need to know every time the kettle was put on. Overall a good read.
  • Good Story!

    A good story - but in need of some serious editing - by all means describe the clothes but once is enough.
  • Likeable characters - but that's all

    Made it to the end of the book. Very likeable characters, but that's about all really. Too much description on clothing, watches and cars; but oddly not enough on the actual plot. Didn't realise that Julie was a dog for a while! Needs a good edit, took too long to get going. Got bored half way through. It was ok for a free book. Glad I didn't buy it though.

    While the plot was not bad, the long winded explanations of the most trivial events conspired with the woeful lack of appropriate punctuation to make this a rather tiresome read. I couldn't help wondering if the laboured explanations meant the author though it was a screen play rather than a novel.
  • Enigmatic enigma

    Enigma is written by a personal shopper. It could have been very enjoyable but the constant descriptions of every item involved in the tale including material price fabric colour got very annoying. It added nothing to the general story and even distracted from it. Very annoying as in most cases totally unconnected to any plot building.

    Too many side roads of character descriptions and places. Detracted totally from the story. Bad usages of the English language and addicted to adjectives. A tedious and laborious read.
  • Annoying read.

    How awful. Gave up reading this book. I thought it was quite a good book at the beginning, then later realised how the author paid way too much attention describing things, surroundings and some other nonsense stuff argh! The development of the story was way tooo slooow. You'll get lost in all those descriptions. Wasted my time.
