The original title of the book: The Boy from Colombo

When eminent psychologist, Dr. Jeanette Shaw, is caught up in a robbery, little does she realise that it will lead to her being asked to solve a murder which encompasses wealth, jealousy, feuds and international intrigue... ... and having to deal with her ex-husband.This Agatha Christie inspired murder mystery will have you guessing until the last page.

Matthew Broadbent was born in Zevenaar in the Netherlands, moving to England when he was 5. At the age of eight he started ballet, joining the Royal Ballet School in London when he was 11. It was here that he first borrowed an Agatha Christie book and his love of murder mysteries started. Whilst at school, Matthew read almost every Agatha Christie book written, often being told off for reading in the dormitory after 'lights out'. After graduating school, Matthew joined Northern Ballet, a UK touring ballet company. To relax from the gruelling performance and touring schedule, Matthew started writing and 'The Boy from Colombo' represents his debut novel, heavily inspired by the Agatha Christie books he read as a child. Matthew continues to work for Northern Ballet, writing in changing rooms and hotels between performances.

    A great first novel in the classical crime tradition. Well plotted and researched, with credible characters. There are plenty of twists and turns on the way to a dramatic conclusion, where the outcome is revealed. Dr Jeannette Shaw makes a strong central character and hopefully she will reappear in future Matthew Broadbent novels.

    What better way to pass a cold, wet Sunday than snuggled up in front of a warm fire engrossed in a murder mystery. This story certainly held my attention from the first page to the last. I hope it is not long before Dr Jeannette Shaw makes another appearance.Dizzy DilemmasBlood Cries Afar: The Forgotten Invasion of England 1216Lizzie the Wizzie and the Deadly Voodoo TattooA Seven Year Hitch

    A fabulous first novel. Well crafted with loads of suspense. I hope this is the first of many and thoroughly recommend it to all murder mystery fans.

    As a real fan of murder/mystery books, I really enjoyed this one. You can see the AC influence. Well worth the read.

    The boy from Colombo stood no chance in life. He witnesses something he should not have seen, and it destroys his life.Meanwhile, Dr Jeanette Shaw, a tough cookie if ever there was one, witnesses a robbery in a London computer store and it also changes her life.Bizarrely, the two seemingly unconnected events are linked, and Dr Shaw finds that she is involved in solving the mystery. She is brought in by her ex-husband, a police officer, to work on the case and finds that she enjoys it very much as she has always wanted to hold an Hercule Poirot final revelatory scene. Will she get to live her fantasy?What part, if any, do the rich family of a dead woman have to play in her death, and how are they linked to the Boy from Colombo?This is a real teaser of a story. I didn't guess the ending and was kept hanging on in delightful suspense. A very enjoyable book, and well written.

    I downloaded this because of the 5 star reviews and, after reading it, was left very disappointed.Almost "it was The Butler, in The Library, with the Candle stick" (it wasn't) but the narrative is poor with over-exaggerated descriptions, highly improbable events (throw a mobile phone from some distance with such force and pinpoint accuracy sufficient to disable an armed thief??) and concludes with annoying loose ends (one of the main characters does not even get a mention).Also my Kindle version had spelling mistakes (which are probably not the fault of the author) but I find that very annoying.Sorry. Not for me.

    The cover might have put me off buying this, but it was a gripping and well written story, full of interesting characters.

    The book story is very well written, the plot is very good. When you start reading it you can't stop.
