    1 thought on “A Hundred Thousand Dragons”

    1. Jack Haldean must confront something he regards as shameful which happened during World War I when two men from his past converge on his present life. An apparent car crash and a dead body bring both his friends from the police – Superintendent Ashley and Inspector Bill Rackham into the story. Hidden treasure and a trip to the Middle East not to speak of an excursion into the use of various codes including Playfair produce some scenes reminiscent of Dorothy L Sayers’ ‘Have His Carcase.’I [...]

    2. An enjoyable diversion, if a bit unsatisfactory towards the end. The author built up the backstory of the mystery and the main character in great detail, yet seemed to rush toward a slightly contrived ending.Notes on second reading: Way too much attention placed on figuring out the timing, then figuring out the code. The ending really is rushed and unsatisfactory. Haldean's interesting war-time backstory emerges but it's almost as if the author is trying to fill in the blanks to make everything [...]

    3. Echos of WW1 again plague Jack. This time he must confront the fear and self-hatred stemming from his actions in the Arabian sands as a 17-year old RAF pilot sent behind enemy lines. I loved reading about Egypt when Egypt was a newly discovered wondrous land of Pharaohs, Sphinx and Bedouin. The heat, the dust, the wonder all came back and my desire to see Petra rekindled. The story is clever but unoriginal in its cast of villains and deluded enthusiasts, but the insight into Jack's past, the tor [...]

    4. This book is an ode to Agatha Christie. It's written in much of the same style (male protagonist/ordinary person detective) and feel (England in the 1920s). For a book my husband picked up randomly at the library, I really enjoyed it, though there were a few minor parts where I thought the author over-described the scenes/dialogue.Overall, well written and well paced. A good, solid mystery.(spoiler)I was, however, confused at the very end, where I assumed the main character diedbut I checked and [...]

    5. Jack Haldean had left the deserts of Trans Jordan disgraced and broken. But now, years after the end of the Great War, he meets one of the few people who knows what happened. If the story ever gets out--Jack doesn't want to think about that. A sudden death, a mysterious American who can't be found, a beautiful woman, and a few lines of verse bring Jack and his friends into danger. Another addition to an enjoyable series.

    6. I love this series! It not only evokes the spirit of Agatha Christie and classic murder mysteries but Golden Age movies.In this one, we get a glimpse of some of Jack's war-time action. It is more of an adventure story rather than a straight mystery with the past reaching into the present, codes to decipher, former adversaries with unfinished business. The ending seemed to be a bit hurried, but a good adventure along the way -- and Isabelle's wedding .

    7. I really like Jack, the protagonist of this series, so I will try another--even though the woman I was seeing as his romantic interest just married someone else--but this volume had too much time with Jack and other sitting around discussing timing and unraveling hidden codes. Although it ends with a show down in the deserts of North Africa.

    8. This one emphasized Jack as action hero, so not quite as believable. However, I think it has one of the best endings to any of the mysteries in the series or mysteries in general. The statement about the planes catching the sun, resonates like the green light at the end of the pier. Also an interesting background on England in Arabia during and after World War I.

    9. Not as good as the first Jack Haldean book. A little too much straying into fantasy for a good mystery. Kind of Agatha Christie meets Laurence of Arabia and King Soloman's Mines, but not as good as any of the above.

    10. What a page turner! It's the best yet in a fine series -- may it continue for years to come! In addition to a gripping storyline, the author provides fascinating information about Jack Haldean's past, further deepening his character.

    11. A little disappointed in this her 4th Jack Haldean mystery. Not as interesting and there were some omissions that were established in the first 3 that bothered me
