EDC Review: Sinister Dexter by Lucy Brazier

 

PorterGirl: Sinister Dexter by [Brazier, Lucy]

‘Sinister Dexter’ the third of the Porter Girl novels is an immensely enjoyable read ; all the more so having read the two that came before – ‘First Lady of the Keys’ and ‘The Vanishing Lord’.  Author Lucy Brazier sets all eyes upon Deputy Head Porter as she strives to uphold the honour of Old College – despite the machinations of The Bursar – jeopardising her position and even more alarming her need of tea.  Two young bodies found at the bottom of the Old College garden, quite disturbing, unsettling the students, the staff, to a degree, not least the ever present Dean – though in his case tempered by having to yet again indulge the police. Deputy Head Porter finds herself the go-between (and all too often the go-without when it comes to tea and sausages) – the link of reason (all things are relative) – dealing with the ‘never wrong, yet not quite right’ Dean, the ‘all seeing, all hearing’ Detective Chief Inspector Thompson, and the’ distracted, not always there’ Head Porter – to name a few! And therein lies the beauty of this story – the interplay of characters, the creation of images, the deft balance of sensitivities, emotions, humour and the bizarre – all sublime – and best of all exposure to what goes on in Deputy Head Porter’s mind! I’ve a mind to read again and will.

Secret Diary Of PorterGirl

The day is almost upon us, my friends! The third PorterGirl novel, Sinister Dexter, will land on Kindles all over the place at the stroke of midnight and I am rather looking forward to it. To welcome my new book into the literary world, I will be doing a series of live broadcasts on Facebook and Twitter between 7pm and 8pm (UK time) tomorrow (Friday 27th April) evening. I will talk about the books, the characters and my time at the real Old College. If there any aspects of Old College (or even my good self) you would like to know more about, or have any questions about anything at all (no maths ones – I can’t do maths) then please do drop me a line via Facebook, Twitter, the comments section here or email lucy@verticalrecordings.com.

By way of celebration, the first book in the series, First Lady Of The…

Thank You, Mister Putin

My pre-order now made for the 3rd PorterGirl novel ‘Sinister Dexter’ written by Lucy Brazier- can’t wait for its release on April 27th. If you are not yet into these novels you’ll get a little taste of my take on ‘First Lady of the Keys’ and ‘The Vanishing Lord’ from my Amazon and Goodreads reviews- both of which I’ll post here tomorrow.

Secret Diary Of PorterGirl

Well, this is a bit of a surprise, to find me here on a Saturday. And no one was more surprised than me when my dear publisher informed me that the general release date of my new novel, PorterGirl – Sinister Dexter, was being brought forward to 27th April. This is largely due to the main bad chap in the book – new Bursar Professor Dexter Sinistrov – being a suspected Russian spy with a penchant for poisoning people.

Which is rather topical, I must admit. Although somewhat unnerving in its timeliness.

One can only assume that the remarkable Mister Putin is such a big fan of PorterGirl that he couldn’t help but stage an elaborate promotional stunt to get things moving.

A huge thank you to those who have offered me guest spots to discuss and promote the book, articles will be winging their way to you very soon…
