5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book to Read While Away Oct. 12 2005
By James N Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
This classic 1972 Pattinson novel and Steve Brady adventure has not dated at all. It is also the novel where Brady first meets the character he becomes rather obsessed with throughout other novels Linda Manning. Unlike most classic Brady novels of yesteryear this novel is not set in cold war Eastern Europe so you do not even have to imagine that the cold war has not ended or imagine and substitute a more modern foe of the West for the setting. Away With Murder has Brady taking up what he is told will be a simple assignment of delivering a first edition algebra textbook from London to Amsterdam. All seems to be going smoothly until he finds two men in his hotel room who want him to take a drive with them and won't take no for an answer.

Previously I would have said Blind Date was my favourite Brady adventure but Away with Murder would have to at least tie if not beat it. Pattinson writes in an old man style where his characters use words that show Pattinson is obviously from a previous generation and not quite down with the lingo of today but this style does add something unique and enjoyable to his novels. High quality Pattinson novels worth your time and money are The Silent Voyage, Skeleton Island, The Time of Your Life, Blind Date, The Murmansk Assignment, Obituary for Howard Grey, Crane, The Animal Gang, Spoilers, The Golden Reef and Life Preserver.
