I really enjoyed meeting Detective Max Wolfe (and his daughter Scout) in the first book of this series, The Murder Bag. I read the first three, but it’s only now I discover this is number six, that I realise I’ve missed some.
I was fortunate to start this series at the beginning and until I checked Goodreads I assumed The Hanging Club was the second in the series by Tony Parsons. And was about to tell you it should be pretty easy to catch up if you need to.
I was surprised therefore to discover this is actually number three and I ‘somehow’ missed number two last year. So obviously it doesn’t matter if you’re playing catch-up because Parsons does a good job of succinctly sharing any necessary backstory.
I read somewhere that journalist and author Tony Parsons generally describes his novels as ‘men lit’ complementing the far-bigger genre of ‘chick-lit’ – which perfectly describes his most widely known novel, Man and Boy. (The former that is, not the latter!) 😉
