I have been searching for different things lately to get me out of my comfort zone and try to shake things up a bit. I had been contacted by a British citizen a little bit ago on
Facebook that just happened to be the author of a few novels, each of them in a
different style. Me being a fan of Monty Python, The Who, The Kinks, Bend it
like Beckham, Rugby and a few other things that are British, thought why not,
give it a go Governour. I think I should also add in Mary Poppins, I am a
sucker for the penguins.

John Moon in A Bird’s Eye View has crafted a very interesting scenario and detective novel. Here is the blurb from the back cover: “When an emerald miner commissions the duo to
chase up on a mislaid pendant, Forbes assumes the case will be an easy fix.
But, when there’s a corpse involved, the stakes have to be raised. From the
comforts of South East England to the lush, tropical recesses of South America,
“ A Bird’s Eye View” follows as the jackdaw flies: with a bright, gleaming,
emerald eye on all who dwell below.”

Strong & Forbes : Private Detectives are open for business and on the hunt. The scenery is great, I have never been to the different parts of the world Moon describes with a grace and ease that seems to
put us right there in the thick of it. The characters Moon creates are fun and
enjoyable, the action is at a good pace. My biggest hindrance, for lack of a
better description, was in the language. I am used to just reading American
novels and the difference in the phrasing made me take a second look at things
on occasion, but I think it made things better for me, as I was enjoying the
differences in our jargon. I had to ask a few of daughters that had traveled
through England for some insights and they were able to provide them for me, so
now I am the better for it.

Did I find what I was looking for, yes without a doubt. John Moon’s A Bird’s Eye View provided me with a new voice that I was hoping to find. A good novel filled with suspense, mystery and action British style. Give this novel a try; strive for a different flav in your mix. It’s fun and challenging. There will be two new novels coming
with John Moon’s detective duo soon. They are Detective Accused & The Heist respectively. Look for them soon,
no release date as of yet.
