    1 thought on “Death's Bright Angel”

    1. In this first of a series DI McLeish and Sgt. Davidson investigate the brutal slaying on a London street of the purchasing manager of Britex, a financially troubled textile firm. The many jobs at stake should Britex fail brings on the attention of the relevant government agency and the bureaucrat in charge is the lovely Francesca Wilson. So in this novel we are treated to the dynamics of corporate dissolutions and rescues as well as the world of Francesca's pop star brother. I'm looking forward [...]

    2. Superb quality of writing. Wonderful characterization. Although written over 20 years ago the story is not the least dated. Looking forward to reading the other books in the series. Highly recommended to fans of British police procedurals.

    3. This author writes wonderful descriptions. Excellent and stimulating vocabulary. Clever character choices, and who can resist a detective who is falling in love?

    4. A multitude of characters, too much detailed info about British government trade practices and confusing changes of scenes slow down the first part of the book. However, about half-way through the lecture-like details decrease, the characters are more knowable and some humor is infused to lighten the tale. Even so, I am not sure I will be rushing out to read another Neel any time soon. Hard to fathom this one actually won a prize as a best first novel.

    5. Oh, how I am coming to love Janet Neel. Her language, characters, and plotting are very good. I had read the last book in this series--without realizing it was such--so it was rather fun to go back in time to when John and Francesca first meet. The workings of the Ministry of Trade and Industry were really interesting, too. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this short series.

    6. Having too much time on my hands, I just reread the eight books by Janet Neel. They are all literate, lively, and London-set with bit of business expertise and music blended with the mystery. I was reminded of the books by Emma La then, but these were more fun. Note: only one is on Kindle.

    7. Reading this in 2015 I can't help but bristle at the "that's a good girl" attitude of the men but as a first novel I'll give her a little leeway.

    8. Too much business and British ministry, too little sense of place. Characters reasonably interesting, especially main inspector, McLeish.

    9. Fabulous style. Janet Neel writes beautifully, brings the Civil Service brilliantly to life and has a well plotted mystery.

    10. I've enjoyed all Janet Neel's books. Wish she would write more of them! I like British mysteries. These are modern and a bit different from the "cozies".

    11. Janet Neel's first book to introduce Detective Chief Inspector John Macleish and Francesca Wilson.They make quite a pair in solving industrial crime and murder.
