If you could sum up The Umbrella Man: An Inspector Samuel Tay Novel in three words, what would they be?
Complex, fascinating, refreshing
Who was your favorite character and why?
Inspector Tay, with a few flaws, which makes his character so interesting. I can see him so clearly, addicted to cigarettes which most of us hate, always thinking, a very clever fellow, I found him fascinating and loved his approach to detection of crime. He seems shy but this is a man who adheres to respect, tradition, and honor. He does things his way and don't get in his face because he's going around you.
What does Steve Marvel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I loved this narrator, he did an excellent job. He put a voice to a character that I love and gave him life.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This is a thinking man's or women's book. You don't slide thru with nonstop car chases or violence, it is a tale of intrigue, where you actually have to engage your brain and follow our detective through the process and in an exotic location as well.
Any additional comments?
Jake Needham is one of my favorite writers, I have bought all of his books and the four new audible. Wonderful locations, complex plots, and a dry humorous detective.
