Cambridge Style


DC Gary Goodhew is intelligent, intuitive and the youngest detective at Cambridge's Parkside Station. He is the first on the scene when the body of a young woman is discovered on Midsummer Common and for the first time in his career is given the chance to work on a murder investigation.

Soon there is an identity for the victim: Lorna Spence. Richard Moran, her boyfriend and employer, has reported her missing and is distraught to discover that she has been killed. He claims she was loved by his staff and his sisters, reserved Alice and vulnerable Jackie. He says she had no enemies but it isn't long before Goodhew discovers plenty, including her high maintenance colleague Victoria and Goodhew's reckless former classmate Bryn.

They both swear that they have nothing to do with Lorna's death but Goodhew knows someone is lying. Then there is another brutal murder and Goodhew knows it is time to use his own initiative to flush out the killer, even though it means risking his job and discovering the truth about the one person he hopes will be innocent.

Das ist das erste Buch einer relativ neuen englischen Krimiserie um einen jungen Polizeidetektiv in Cambridge. DC Goodhew ist zwar jung und unerfahren, aber er ist auch dickköpfig und mit Empathie und Intuition ausgestattet. Das bringt ihn immer wieder in Konflikt mit den Kollegen, insbesondere mit seinem Chef, weil er unbekümmert Alleingänge startet. Schön ist auch die Darstellung aus der Sicht des Vorgesetzten, der weist ihn immer wieder in die Schranken und ist kurz davor, ihn rauszuwerfen, ist dann aber auch immer wieder von den Ergebnissen, die der junge Mann bringt, beeindruckt und ändert seine Meinung, durchaus widerwillig und mit der Ahnung, dabei vielleicht auch einen Fehler zu machen.

Keine Spoiler, daher nichts zur Handlung. Gefallen hat mir über lange Strecken die Entwicklung des Plots, die allmähliche Enthüllung der komplizierten Beziehungen der Protagonisten und auch das Cambridge-Lokalkolorit. (Cambridge als Stadt, das akademische Cambridge spielt keine Rolle). Allerdings muss in dem gut orchestrierten Ende mit der Schlussauflösung der Leser eine so dicke Kröte schlucken und bekommt ein so unglaubwürdiges Szenario vorgesetzt, dass das doch die Freude am Buch letztendlich ganz schön ruiniert.

Fazit, interessanter Serienstart, hoffentlich in den weiteren Bänden mit etwas mehr Glaubwürdigkeit im Plot.

4.0 von 5 Sternen "Everyone lied to me." 25. Dezember 2008
Von E. Bukowsky - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In Alison's Bridge's "Cambridge Blue," a star is born: twenty-five year old Detective Constable Gary Goodhew. Unfortunately, his boss, Detective Inspector Marks, is not exactly besotted with Gary, who is the newest member of the force at Parkside Police Station in Cambridge. Goodhew is a loner with a strong sense of morality and a reputation for brains and determination, but he may too independent for his own good. When he should be busy working a case with his partner, DC Michael Kincaide, Gary often goes his own way, following his hunches and conducting unauthorized inquiries without consulting his superior. Marks growls, "You irritate me.... You fire off like a bullet when an investigation starts and ricochet around the case until you hit a target." His boss is furious that Gary refuses to follow protocol. On the other hand, he recognizes that Gary has "a gift for people and truth and logic that [doesn't] come with any amount of training." Goodhew is devoted to his job and has no personal life to speak of. His closest confidante is his youthful and energetic grandmother. He is definitely not your run-of-the-mill policeman.

When a boy finds the body of twenty-three year old woman with a plastic bag over her head, Gary is part of the team called in to investigate. Her death is followed by another similar crime, and the authorities are stymied in their search for the killer. As Goodhew says, "It's too random, just a fog of possibilities.... It was like a Rubik's cube, coming together in one place only to be jumbled up somewhere else." For better or worse, Gary is not content to follow orders or wait for instructions. He interviews witnesses and examines crime scenes without informing Marks. What frustrates Marks to no end is the fact that Gary is extremely clever, intuitive, and persistent. He will not rest until the puzzle is solved and the perpetrator apprehended. Should Marks give him enough rope to hang himself or just send him packing?

Goodhew is a refreshingly original and appealing character and the author makes fine use of the book's colorful and historic Cambridge setting. The secondary characters are mostly predatory people who destroy others for sport or personal gain. Although the beginning of "Cambridge Blue" is engrossing, in the second half of the novel it becomes apparent that there are some seriously weird things going on. When the murderer's identity and the convoluted circumstances surrounding the crimes are revealed, the reader's credulity is strained to the breaking point. In her debut novel, Alison Bruce shows as much promise as her lively protagonist. Perhaps the next installment in this series will give DC Goodhew, a man whose "inspired chaos" leads to brilliant deductions, a mystery that is more worthy of his considerable talents.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very promising debut [4.5 stars] 20. September 2009
Von Debra Hamel - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Alison's Bruce's Cambridge Blue, which was released in the U.S. in January of this year, was first published in the UK in 2008. This means, I hope, that in the last year the author's been hard at work on the second book in the series, because when it comes out, I want it. Cambridge Blue is a police procedural set in Cambridge and featuring DC Gary Goodhew, the youngest officer to ever make detective in Cambridge's Parkside Police Station. It's not that Goodhew is brilliant in a Sherlock Holmes sort of way, though he is very intelligent. It's more that he has a genius for noticing things, and a single-minded interest in his job, and a tendency to go off on his own and follow leads no one else has noticed. And besides he doesn't sleep very much. He is an enigmatic figure, living a sort of double life which, one is surprised to discover, he shares the details of with the only significant woman in his life, his grandmother.

Goodhew is an intriguing character who's more than up to the task of anchoring this series. The secondary characters also show promise: Goodhew's exasperated superior DI Marks, his deeply unpleasant colleague Michael Kincaide, Mel from the admin department, who plays the sax and likes the wrong kind of men. Not one of them is superficially drawn.

In this installment Cambridge is rocked by a perplexing series of murders by strangulation, all of them seemingly related to one another. It's not clear until the very end what's going on, and even then, when the details come spewing forth on the page, the story is a bit of a head-scratcher. One has to rethink the various clues to get things straight in one's mind. (I'm still not sure why one of the deaths had to happen.) Delightfully complex, then, both in its plot and its characters: none of them are what they seem to be; most everyone seems to be hiding something. You'll spend much of your time with the book wondering what this character or that is up to, from the prologue on. A very, very promising debut.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Kept Me Guessing 13. August 2011
Von annie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
By the time I reach the midway point of a book I've usually figured out "whodunit". This one kept me guessing until near the end. The protagonist is an interesting man who follows the beat of his own drum----I can't help but think he'd be fired in the real world. Also, I think there's more to his story than we know. A shadowy past seems to dog his every footstep. I intend to follow this with the author's second book. Perhaps it will shine a better light on DC Goodhew.
4.0 von 5 Sternen An intriguing, unconventional main character 11. August 2015
Von Cathy G. Cole - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I have to be honest and say that the major reason why I chose to read Cambridge Blue is because of the day I spent wandering the streets of that old city. It's a fascinating place, and I often felt as though I were in a completely different world. Alison Bruce certainly does not disappoint with her setting; I felt myself back on those streets once again, but this time with a very unusual police officer.

Young Gary Goodhew isn't into casual relationships. He simply cannot separate the physical from the emotional. His best friend is his grandmother. He's also something of a lone wolf-- a young man who's a police detective by day and then seemingly behaves like some sort of nocturnal super hero when he's off duty. He's a character who simultaneously threw me off balance and captured my attention. I just had to know how different he really is.

Many things that Goodhew does are not by the book. Fortunately for him Detective Inspector Marks sees his potential and is willing to cut the young man some slack. However, as the investigation continues, Goodhew begins to take advantage of Marks, and the inspector has to draw the line. There's a very interesting dynamic between Goodhew and Marks as well as the other police officers he works with.

The mystery is complex and makes for compelling reading-- even though I guessed the identity of the killer rather early on. It seems as though all the victims and suspects have hidden agendas, and that's what made the mystery for me: trying to piece together "what" and "how."

With a Cambridge setting, a complex mystery, and the unconventional Gary Goodhew as the main character, Cambridge Blue is a very good read. I look forward to reading the other books in this series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Home Town Crime! 4. Oktober 2012
Von Rusty the Hamster - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I jumped at reading this book as it has two elements that I like. Crime and it's set in Cambridge, which is near where I live. A combination of the two make me immediately hit the download button.

I really enjoyed reading about an area that I found familiar. Cambridge has great potential for a crime novel and then there's all those university colleges. I liked the character of Goodhew, I will be reading the sequels to see how his character develops. We are given interesting hints as to his background and the fact he is so young means that we will get to see him grow in the series. I hope. I did wonder how much Goodhew would be able to get away with his behaviour in a real life police team, but then again, it does make his character interesting so I understand why he is so quirky.

I did feel that the ending needed more development - I didn't feel particularly threatened by the baddie/s (don't want to give anything away!) but I'm hoping that this will happen in further novels. I will be reading the sequels, I'm interested to see how Goodhew develops and to see where else in Cambridge he goes! As a crime fiction fan, I felt that this novel kept me turning the pages to the end and interested enough to download the next one.
