    1. The Victim in Victoria Station by Jeanne M. Dams.This is the 5th in the Dorothy Martin cozy mystery series.Dorothy's husband, Alan, is away on business in Zimbabwe. So she is on her own and a bit lonesome for Alan's company already. During a train trip to see her doctor in London Dorothy meets a young /American on his first trip to England. They strike up a brief conversation. Later Dorothy finds that same man, Bill, asleep. She tries to wake him but gets no response and calls for a doctor. A pa [...]


    2. The set up to catch the culprit was a bit too contrived, but the narrative of Dorothy being introduced to computers was funny (and a bit familiar) given this book was written in 1999.


    3. The Victim in Victoria Station, by Jeanne M. Dams, b-plus.This book was on cassette and purchased from Books on Tape.I have to admit to liking the Dorothy Martin mysteries even though they’re a bit like Jessica Fletcher-at least on t.v. Dorothy Martin is a retired elementary schoolteacher from America, (Indiana) who married a retired Scotland Yard Inspector and moved to England. One thing I like about these books is that she describes both the English countryside and London as an American migh [...]


    4. This is the last book in the Dorothy Martin series by Jeanne Dams. Not in order, of course. I am always reading books in a series out of the chronological order simply because I pick up as book at the library, read it, love it, and decide to read all the others. This is the fifth in the correct reading order, but last for me to read because I had a hard time locating it. The characters in these books are the main character, Dorothy Martin, super sleuth, Alan Nesbitt, her policeman husband, her v [...]


    5. I got this for free on my Kindle, and I was immediately hooked by Jeanne M Dams' retired school teacher, Dorothy Martin character and her adventures in crime-solving. Having gone back and read the previous 4 novels to this one and all the ones subsequent to it, I can honestly say that The Victim in Victoria Station is one of the better mysteries in the series. The characters are vivid and the set-up was immediately addictive. If you are well-traveled (or dream of being so), then you will love th [...]


    6. Audiobook for the car - this was really just a placeholder listen while our library systems on-line catalog was down for over a week to do upgrades so I couldn't request the audiobooks I really wanted. I've listened to her other series featuring Hilda Johanssen in early 1900s South Bend, and this is (I think) my first Dorothy Martin, but the plot was so ridiculously far-fetched and I had guessed whodunnit pretty early on, so really my main concern was that the stray cat in the story found a good [...]


    7. Our favourite middle-aged, ex-pat American sleuth is at it againspecting a crime has been committed then following through with an investigation that is amateur and dangerous but well-meaning. While her husband is in Zimbabwe on business, Dorothy Martin does everything she can to prove that the young man who collapsed beside her on the Tube was murdered. Her intuition is impeccable, as always, and she leaves no stone unturned in her single-minded quest for the perpetrator of this shocking crime. [...]


    8. the main character is an older widow who has moved to England. On a trip to London she meets a fellow american passenger. by the end of the trip, he has died. she looks for a notice in the paper about someone dying on the train but there is no record! Who was he? Why didn't the doctor who came along call the police to report the body. There were no visible signs of violence. How did he die? Why did he die? She proceeds to find out. The plot devices are contrived and the characters are shallow pe [...]


    9. This detective is an elderly woman married to a retired English policeman. This time she solves the murder mystery while her husband is away in Africa. Some scenes are rather far-fetched, but if you suspend logic long enough, you might enjoy the hi-jinks in the book. I didn't think this was as good as some of the other books by the same author, but is an easy read on a hot summer day.


    10. This was cute, but I didn't like it as much as the others in the series. In this book the police don't believe our heroine when she tells them that she found a body at Victoria Station, so she takes matters into her own hands to try to find out who the victim and murderer were. It was all a bit too improbable, even given how improbable we might expect these books to be.





    11. Maybe it's because I can identify with the main character more than some, but I really enjoyed this story. I did guess whodunit, but I enjoyed getting there.


    12. office intriqueDorothy goes undercover--Age mid-60's doesn't slow her downlove the discrete references to marital bliss throughout all the books.


    13. I had a very hard time getting into this book and could not finish it, can't pin[point reason, it just was not as good as others, rather boring



    14. Dorothy Martin finally went over the top of my annoyance limit, so this is the last book in the series I'll bother with.




    15. This is the first novel I have read by this author. I liked the character and the pace of the book. It held my interest and I finished it quickly.
