    1 thought on “The Dog Walker

    1. Review on my book site ireadnovels.wordpress The Dog Walker is the best novel that Lesley Thomson has written As I turned the pages I was curiously hungry for clues Dog walkers and joggers use the Thames towpath between Kew Bridge and Mortlake Crematorium The voice of little Megan is told with absolute precision that makes you believe in the character As Megan and her friends notice a poster of missing Helen Honeysett she tells her friends that her dad told her that Helen was killed by her husba [...]

    2. This was my first time reading Lesley Thomson but it certainly won t be my last as THE DOG WALKER really captured my interest and held it to the very last line.In 1987 new resident Helen Honeysett disappears without a trace and is never seen or heard from again Fast forward to 2016 and Stella and Jack take on a cleaning case that may involve some ghostly encounters, but as they are asked to look into the cold case from 1987, who knows what dark and disturbing secrets they may uncover.As the tale [...]

    3. While I generally like to read books in series in order, I think you could read this without worrying too much about the back story of Stella and Jack the ending does suggest that Jack may be moving on from his past The setting as before is the river at Hammersmith, an unsolved crime from the 1980s, and an interest in the houses of west London The author does like the surviving old places, houses both large and small which have escaped the attention of developers in this case, a cottage has succ [...]

    4. This book is set in present day and 1987, in London A group of cottages are the setting for a disappearance, they run alongside the Thames, it is used often by dog walkers One particular dog walker and jogger was Helen Honeysett, she went missing one evening in 1987 and her body was never found The residents were questioned at the time, but nobody was arrested In the present day setting, Stella, owner of Clean Slate, is asked to investigate the old case by Adam, the husband of Helen Her colleagu [...]

    5. I won a copy of this book in a competition and thought it look like a good read, and it was, I really enjoyed it There are lots of interesting characters in the book, many of which could have a motive for the murder As Stella and Jack investigate the story unfolds and keeps you reading to the end to see what really happened.

    6. Again, very atmospheric I like the way she always weaves back in time, especially being familiar with those years My main gripe is too much language Apart from that would have given five stars Really kept me going till the end I hope this isn t the end of the series.

    7. There are two things that I love in a book, the first is a map and the second is a varied cast of characters.The Dog Walker has both of these things, set in London it has a nice map which shows where the events took place and a great collection of characters young and old perfect for throwing you off the scent of the murderer in the midst.Told over the course of twenty nine years, the story visits the disappearance of Helen Honeysett, a beautiful young woman who vanishes whilst running besides t [...]

    8. This is the first book I ve finished since I took a somewhat mysterious seizure I m fine now, touch wood, but I found my concentration levels have been shockingly poor for the last three weeks or so I can t even think how long it s been do you see what I mean Anyway great read WONDERFUL characters, and a superb yarn I ll get a full review up on the blog in the next few days I am running a bit behind but I would thoroughly recommend this A complex, meaty case that put me slightly in mind of The C [...]

    9. I thoroughly enjoyed this one Thomson s atmospheric writing this time around has taken us to another obscure corner of London she seems to specialise in those where a crime was committed that shatters one family and blights the lives of others, including the husband of the victim With two timelines running one set around the time of the murder and afterwards as the consequences begin to stack up, while the other one is set here and now centred on the investigative efforts of Stella and Jack.Whil [...]

    10. Another excellently crafted story by Lesley Thomson.This time a young estate agent disappears in 1987 on the Thames towpath near Mortlake Crematorium, there are several suspects, but one person takes their life and it s assumed they killed the young woman and either buried the body or threw it into the Thames.Fast forward to the present and Stella Darnell has been asked to investigate an apparent haunting in the newly and expensively refurbished home of Natasha Latimer She wants a live in housek [...]

    11. I found The Dog Walker an easy read but the many coincidences to move the plot forward make it a bit incredible To quote a few as examples, Jackie s husband is a witness in the central crime investigation, Lucie turns out to be Bette s sister, Stanley lived in the same house as Brian Juddd so it goes on I know life is stranger than fiction, butSo, not as highly recommended as the previous Detective s Daughter novels.

    12. It s a dog s life.Very good story or should I say two stories It took me a while though to follow who was who and in which time period Sometimes I couldn t figure out where you were I think a map of the area at the beginning would have helped,showing the cottages in respect to the river etc.I felt Bella shouldn t have been in the story,, she seemed pointless But all in all I felt it was a good story Well worth reading.

    13. I was lucky to find this series of great books back when the first was published Since then I have read each one in order of publication I have looked forward to the next and now on No 5 of this series I again hopefully look forward to the next for Stella and Jack I believe that if you happened on one of these books you could definitely read them as a stand alone book but I have enjoyed our two s journey throughout the series.

    14. What a delight Reading the first in this series, with the strangest coupling of detectives ever, ensured that I would read them all This was no disappointment, they entered yet another strange world, and the perfectly drawn characters and wonderful writing are to be savoured Love love love it With Fred Vargas, Lesley Thomson is the most original crime writer of today.

    15. As good as all the other Detective Daughter books.The relationship between Stella and Jack is moving on and the dog Stanley is actually called Whisky.I hope she writes another book

    16. As I said with another book of the series, these are well written and great to read, however just too many coincidences and too many related people involved in each case which for this book, pushes it a bit over the edge of credibility otherwise it would be a 5 star Very entertaining though.

    17. going through a hectic time when no book could keep me focused This one could Good story, atmospheric writing.

    18. I ve enjoyed some of the previous books in the Detective s Daughter series but this was so dire I gave up on it Quite a few of the characters didn t ring true and it just seemed like a poor imitation of the previous books by this author I had no interest in finding out who killed who or why.

    19. I ve read all the books in the detectives daughter series and up to now I ve really enjoyed them I really like the characters of Stella and Jack and although they are obviously still the central characters I got so bored with the constant references to cleaning up after the various dogs featured in this story particularly Stanley So tedious and was it strictly necessary Spoiler I didn t find this story very gripping either and thought the motive for Daphne Merry murdering Helen Honeysett nebulou [...]
