    I am genuinely baffled by this book's good reviews Most people say it is terribly written but a well crafted puzzle Well I agree up to a point specifically up to 'but' If you haven't named the murderer after Chapter One you must be asleep Every clue may as well have been accompanied by fanfare heralding its pertinence to the dawningly obvious denouementWhen I could switch off enough to get past the bad writing and Craft isn't that bad really; he's just Archer than Amis the narrator's arrogance would pop up like an untended pimple Every other page mark Manning is telling us how everyone fancies him how hardworking he is and how he can outrun youths Despite this he seems to do very little but flounce around graciously accepting adulation conveniently summarising everything that's just happened to his boyfriend who was there anyway and failing to grasp the screamingly obvious solution to the crime until a second murder has happened The arrogant sod even works out that someone doesn't fancy men because they don't orgasm when he touches them SeriouslyIt's like a bad midlife crisis fantasy The only piece of writing with any drive or animation is a sex scene towards the end which makes one wonder how excited the author was when writing it The novel acknowledges Agatha Christie as an 'inspiration' For this read Craft ripped off an at the time little known Christie play THE UNEXPECTED GUEST but forgot to develop key plot points If the mystery is as people claim this book's redeeming feature go and read or watch the Christie play to see the same mystery better developed and engagingly wordedBut if you want a badly written cringe fest which is also uite incesty or you want to see how to hash a decent idea that was never yours in the first place I thoroughly recommend BODY LANGUAGE

    This is the first Michael Craft novel that I've read It's hard to find uality gay literature in my opinion and I adored this story As I haven't read many mystery novels working my way through this story was uite enjoyableMy only issues with Body Language is the repetitiveness of the story Mark Manning spends time than necessary detailing moments of the past to the point where it slows the pace of the story Other than that I enjoyed Craft's style of writing which has made me eager to read his other novels

    Best yetThe first two manning stories were good but the location and story seemed not rightBut this one felt like Agatha Christie novel of Tommy and Topuence with a gay themVery little political emphasise on a political agendaProblem with most gay character books always the bad guys are some religious or political slantThat's ok sometime but it is a bit limiting and impossible to keep guessing since its clear from the beginning the author detest the character and couldn't bother giving the character a soft sideMost people are not all evil or all good mostly it's fear and indoctrination that twist someone into doing evil things

    I liked Body Language The murderer's identity was as others have pointed out obvious But it was fun trying to guess how the protagonist would figure it out The narrator seemed a bit full of himself in the beginning and the way he talked felt a bit scripted but he grew on me eventually There was enough plot besides the mystery to keep things interesting but not enough to be distracting All in all it was a decent read

    Those who've read the previous installments of the Manning series and are familiar with Craft's ways will probably find the general outline of the mystery a little obvious Even if the author tries to blurs the lines a little and introduce other possibilities it's not ultimately that effective Still it's an easy fun and undemanding read Entertainment in book form

    Hot readingI enjoyed the author’s skilled development of the characters in this story The story itself had my attention through the reading from page 1 to the conclusion My intention is to find another mark manning mystery as soon as possible

    The series truly hits its stride with Body Language in voice as well as with the development of the characters The great thing about rereading this series after a number of years is knowing I can go straight on to the next book without having to waitThe series truly hits its stride with Body Language in voice as well as with the continuing development of the characters The great thing about rereading this series after a number of years is knowing I can go straight on to the next book without having to wait


  8. Mark Gaulding Mark Gaulding says:

    I enjoyed this book even than the previous I have sort of a crush on Mark Manning now spurred on by his fetish for khaki's and his cousin which is depicted in this book at great length This book proves that the author has brought together a uniue family and future books should be even interesting


  9. Michael Brown Michael Brown says:

    In book 3 Mark Manning makes some major changes but his guy Neil sticks by him The narrative switches from present tense to past and the writing gets better The red herrings work better I read each installment in one sitting and you can feel the author honing his Craft no pun intended This series is highly recommended in order as you will feel the improvement along the way

    Steady improvement in the writing much better than #2
