    One thought on “Pigeon Blood Rubies: A Paul Beck Mystery (Black Heath Classic Crime)”

    1. Although well written this book is totally improbable and rather ridiculous. Beck always seems to know what's going on but we really poor readers are not privy to how he knows most of the time. The ending is very confusing but the culprit was fairly obvious. I don't think I'll be rushing to read any more of Beck's adventures.
