Israel Armstrong, one of literature's most unlikely detectives, returns for more crime solving adventure in this hilarious second novel from 'The Mobile Library' series. The second in the 'The Mobile Library ' detective series, 'Mr Dixon Disappears' once again features the magnificently hapless Israel Armstrong - the young, Jewish, duffle-coat wearing librarian who solves crimes, mysteries, and domestic problems all whilst driving a mobile library around the coast of Northern Ireland. Dixon and Pickering's, County Antrim's legendary department store, is preparing to celebrate its centenary. But the elderly Mr Dixon - a member of the Ulster Association of Magicians - has gone missing, along with one hundred thousand pounds in cash. It smells, pretty badly, of a kidnap. Israel becomes a suspect in the police investigation and is suspended from his job by his boss, the ever-fearsome Linda Wei. He's having to fight to clear his name. Does Israel's acclaimed five-panel touring exhibition showing the history of Dixon and Pickering's in old photographs and artefacts perhaps hold the key to Mr Dixon's mysterious disappearance? Will romance blossom between Israel and Rosie Hart, the barmaid at the First and Last? Will Linda Wei stick to her diet? And has nobody here heard of Franz Kafka? All will be revealed in this hilarious and endlessly inventive sequel to 'The Case of the Missing Books'.… (mere)

I finished this book, but it wasn't exactly my favorite. I prefer a more serious mystery and this one had too much frivolity. I don't need a lot of humor in my mysteries and British humor in this case just didn't appeal to me. ( )

Freddo di chiamata

E' un modo di dire che non so quanti di voi conoscono. Sta ad indicare qualcuno che, nonostante venga sollecitato, non risponde al richiamo, non mostra reazioni. Il libro si legge scorrevolmente, la scrittura è tipicamente "british" con qualche ripetizione tipo "tic nervoso" un pò sfiancante. Non è terribile, ma non lascia il segno. A parte alcune interessanti riflessioni del protagonista, la situazione paradossale che si crea nella storia ha dei rimandi kafkiani, ma molto meno complessi. Il finale non al livello della suspense creata non è un difetto. Come dire, il viaggio sta nel mentre e non è soltanto il raggiungimento della mèta a determinare la bellezza di un'avventura. Tutto sommato, senza infamia nè lode. Non mi convince proseguire le orme dell'autore.

Although this was better than the first book of the series, the quirkiness and humor was not enough to save a rather silly mystery. At least it was quick read but now I am done with the Mobile Library mysteries.

Fun, yes, but rather thin pickings. I liked the first in this series well enough, but this one seemed a bit of a reach. Pretty easy reading, will make you smile in all the right places, but lacking in substance. Maybe one story was enough. I'm about to start the third of the series, and I have an open mind, but my expectations are low after this underwhelming effort. ( )

Another fun yarn about Israel Armstrong, the Jewish vegetarian librarian transplanted from London to Northern Ireland to run the mobile library. Will the hapless, insecure Israel ever be able to live a normal life in Northern Ireland? I doubt it. This time he is arrested when the department store owner disappears with the contents of the safe. Even Israel's dithering protestations make him appear guilty. Maybe it's my mothering instinct, but I adore him. ( )

He was sick of the excuses and the lies. He was tired of the evasions and the untruths, of people refusing to stand up and speak the truth and take responsibility for their own actions. It seemed to him like yet another symptom of the decline of Western civilisation; of chaos; and climate change; and environmental disaster; and war; disease; famine; oppression; the eternal slow slide down and down and down. It was entropy, nemesis, apotheosis, imminent apocalypse and sheer bad manners all rolled into one. ----- People were not returning their library books on time.
