    1 thought on “Anything for a Quiet Life and Other New Mystery Stories”

    1. This book of short stories had great potential. A 60+ lawyer semi-retires to a seaside English market town. Shackleton is exactly the sort of place I would like to spend some time wandering around in. If not in person, at least vicariously. Unfortunately this book is thoroughly mediocre and painfully boring. The lead character, Jonas Pickett, does not so much as solve mysteries as sort of sits around as they happen. Pickett, a lifelong bachelor, is extremely boring, one of the most vanilla chara [...]

    2. ANYTHING FOR A QUIET LIFE. (1990). Michael Gilbert. ****.This is the first collection of short stories I have read by Mr. Gilbert. He has successfully knitted them together by using his first story, “Anything for a Quiet Life,” as the opportunity to set the scene. We meet Jonas Pickett, a solicitor from a London firm. He is setting up a branch office for his firm in the small town of Shackleton, England. It’s both a way of growing his business and of getting away from the stress and strain [...]

    3. Jonah Pickett moves his solicitor office to a quiet Sussex town, Shackleton-on-Sea, as a compromise between his London workload and retirement. He plans to take on just a few clients and enjoy the small-town life.

Fortunately, he has his acerbic partner Sabrina, his beautiful secretary Claire, and Sam, a former circus strongman wh [...]

    4. I found this very entertaining. The stories centered around a lawyer who semi-retires and moves to the country to ease into retirement. Fun stories about his new home.

    5. I enjoy this collection of connected short stories a great deal; worth re-reading often! I'm also glad to reconnect with Jonas Pickett, who seems to have mellowed considerably.
