    1 thought on “Purple Death”

    1. Set in England, this author gave head nods to Miss Marple and Sherlock. But this didn't book didn't hit those high notes for me. I found the conversations stilted, corny and uncomfortable to read. The story itself was ok, the antagonist was slowly brought into view and I didn't guess the murderer until the last few chapters. 2.5 stars rounded up to 3

    2. One of Porter's best. Thoroughly enjoyed this crime thriller, centred around a series of murders using aconite poisoning. D.I. Sean Connor is a convincing character & as the suspects begin to mount, you'll be pulled in to thinking you know who the killer is. Beware the twists, as always Porter keeps you on the edge of your seat right up to the very last chapter.

    3. Purple Death - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat'Sam tried to move his legs and instead fell in a crumpled heap on his office floor. He felt more than just 'ill' now. Fear gripped Sam while the sweat on his brow began to run down into his eyes. He felt a constriction in his chest, as if someone had suddenly placed an iron barrel ring around him and was tightening it by the second. The life was rapidly being crushed out of his body, but with nothing and no one there to off [...]

    4. Purple Death by Brian L. Porter is a chocolate lover’s nightmare, a slick whodunit centered on the murders of Sam Gabriel and David Arnold. Their demise is diagnosed as poison by chocolate, which brings police operatives Sean Connor and Lucy Clay onto the case. Eventually they begin uncovering a string of killings that share the same modus operandi, and soon they begin building a composite sketch of a murderess they call the Chocolate Woman. Only Lucy finds herself keeping Sean from tripping o [...]

    5. A particularly vicious poison is being used to kill a number of people who seemingly have no connection to each other.DI Sean Connor is tearing his hair out over the lack of any DNA, clues, or motive. The killer seems to know what Connor and his team are doing before they do it. The poison used eventually leads them to an unsolved crime from 30 years ago.There's lot of action, mostly Connor and his team running around questioning everyone. The medical examiner even comes up with a way to help th [...]

    6. Brian L. Porter's "Purple Death" is set in an area close to where I once lived in England. The author has chosen the quiet town of Richmond-on-Thames which adds a shock effect to the murders that take place there. A present day murder leads to a thirty-year old cold case. As victims multiply, Detective Sean Connor and his assistant, Sergeant Lucy Clay, work a twisted and frightening case that takes them all over England, and leads them to a mysterious person known as Chocolate Woman. As suspects [...]

    7. Far fetched.A bit too far fetched for me. Too many men who fell so in love with one woman. A woman with no redeeming features, as far as I could gather. Then, the last lover waits decades and takes revenge on descendents? No. Never happen. Not even women love like that. Also, there seemed to be a lot of repeating, like the reader is too dense to remember that. Sorry. Can't recommend at all.

    8. Murder, murder by poison, murder by aconite, creating a horrible, rending death not for one but for seven victims. As the series of crimes unfold Detective Inspector Sean Connor and Sgt. Lucy Clay, along with DI Carrick and Sgt. Cole struggle with why, who and even, in the first two deaths, how. But Sean's friend, the forensic pathologist, finds the why, that being aconite. Then, slowly Sean and the others begin to fathom out how the first several murders are committed. The Chocolate Lady surfac [...]

    9. As many murder mysteries as I've read, from all over the English speaking world, this one actually had some unexpected plot twists. I like that in a book. It kept me guessing. I figured out who "done" it fairly early on but couldn't figure out how and why he chose his victims. With so many story elements, I didn't think the author was going to be able to tie them together plausibly but he did. Very well done. 

    10. Inspector Sean Conner and Sgt. Lucy Clay catch the case of a train engineer who is found dead in the cab of his locomotive just after it pulled into the station. Then they get more cases and the only obvious link is the cause of death. They scramble for clues and end up chasing red herrings as the killer seems to be a step ahead of them. Set in England it has and English "flavor" to it and the ending is not exactly obvious but may be guessed by the careful reader.

    11. Took to long to get startedI gave this book 3 stars as I was 50 percent finished before any suspense was really in the book! It seemed to just go on and on and I finally got to the end. Did not keep my attention. I like a fast moving suspense and more character development.

    12. Below average murder mystery about poisoned victims. Lots of spelling and grammar errors. I'm surprised I read the whole book. Fortunately, it only cost $.99.

    13. This was a first time author for me to read. It was a good mystery and sure kept you guessing till the last page. I would probably read more by this author.

    14. Well doneAn interesting plot by a fine author. Well worth reading. Great job on local color and characters. I recommend reading

    15. A good readThis book is really good police procedure. Full of dead ends keeps you guessing right to the end. I would really recommend it
