    1. Police procedural turned spy thriller in the 1952 Great London Fog. This made the rounds of my disabled friends with general approbation for the blind police diver turned love interest for the protagonist. She is, indeed, lively and independent and smart and fierce, and she is allowed to have a sex life without being killed off! And her regular putdowns of the protagonist’s standard-issue ablism are pretty great.I wish I could have liked this more, but despite her, I found this intensely tedio [...]


    2. Há muito tempo que não lia um livro tão "secante" e confuso como este, e se não fosse a grande admiração que tenho por este autor, garanto que já o tinha largado há muito. Fiz um esforço enorme para chegar ao fim do livro e, em mais de 300 páginas, deve ter havido cerca de uma dúzia que me entusiasmaram.A história é confusa, personagens em excesso que são abolutamente desnecessárias para o enredo do livro, muita "palha" e pouca emoção.É a prova que até os bons autores têm os [...]


    3. VISIBILITY (Police Proc-Herbert Smith-England-1952) - VGStarling, Boris – 4th bookAn Onyx Book, 2008, US Paperback ISBN – 9780451412508First Sentence: The fog was coming, without and within.Det. Herbert Smith is dealing with a body found in the shallows of the Long Water and trying to investigate a case where England’s Five, the espionage division of which Smith had been a member, the CIA and the KGB. Making the investigation even more difficult is the worst fog London has ever seen, but S [...]


    4. I knew I was in trouble quite early when the protagonist checked a car out of the New Scotland Yard motor pool, drove it to a crime scene, and then took the train home. After one hundred pages, the car is still sitting on the street at the crime scene with no one missing it. After one hundred tortured pages of numbing boredom, I still have only a vague understanding of what the story is about or who the fuzzy characters are. I can't finish it. The over the top faux-sophistication and obnoxiously [...]


    5. The book is set in 1952 London when the worst 5 day fog took place; travel was impossible, pollutants in the fog were making people ill and killing the vulnerable population. Policeman Herbert is sent to investigate a murder and becomes involved in politics, espionage, treason and high-ranking Nazis. The book moves along quickly, will keep you up reading long after you should have gone to bed. When you finally finish it, the question is -- was this a true story? If not, then one of the most clev [...]


    6. The terrible fog of 1952 permeates every page of this thriller set in London. There are murders, links to the Holocaust, scientific discoveries & espionage, a war-weary policeman, a blind girl tortured by Dr. Mengele, Americans & Russians, & idiotic bureaucrats. Did transitor radios exist in 1952??


    7. I certainly wouldn't recommend this to anyone. The plot was dull and predictable, the characters were thin and none stirred any emotion. The fog was a cheap tool to force suspense when none existed in the story. Ultimately it was flat and forced.



    8. I enjoyed the look into the characters past and present in the book. Well written, making easy reading. I also enjoyed thinking about about hard solving crimes was before smartphones and out knowledge of DNA!


    9. Sadly I'm disappointed with this read. I loved the book Messiah, but this one didn't live up to that. the story was boring , slow and characters weren't of much interest.



    10. VISIBILITY is the fourth book from Boris Starling. It is set in 1952 in London in the middle of one of the last great, lingering pea-souper fogsSIBILITY could be a reference to the fog which is all pervading and dictates all of the action and events in this post-war thriller. When biochemist Max Stensness is found drowned in early in the evening, in the middle of the fog, Herbert Smith, ex-MI5 and now member of Scotland Yard's Murder Squad gets the case because it's probably going to be an unint [...]


    11. I occasionally pick up books like Boris Starling’s Visibility for a quick, mindless read. The primary requirement is that the book be free, which doesn’t say a whole lot for my standards but what the heck.Visibility isn’t awful and is, in fact, entertaining. It serves its purpose, at any rate. Set in London in 1952 during one of the worst fogs in English history, this cop/spy thriller has all the requisite pieces necessary to do the job of being a thriller.I will say, however, that the boo [...]


    12. As a fearful fog moves through London, Herbert Smith of London's murder squad is on the hunt for a suspect who killed a young scientist in the murky waters of Long Water. London is gripped by this fog which is such a pea souper that it causes ambulances and police to lose their way and hinders people who become lost though they know the area as well as the back of their hand. The fog is also toxic and it makes many people sick and unable to breathe. The hospitals are full of people suffering fro [...]


    13. I am a big fan of Boris Starling's Messiah so, although I wasn't particularly struck by the blurb of this book, I thought I'd give it a whirl. Either fortunately or unfortunately, my copy contained a hugely misleading blurb which spoke excitedly of a rising body count (there isn't), and the tagline "Now you see it, now you're dead" (you aren't).This is a very claustrophobic novel and it does a decent job of evoking the thick London fog the characters move through as they go about their investiga [...]


    14. Herbert Smith works for Scotland Yard, but he isn't well accepted there because he came from MI5 - Britain's CIA. So, he didn't have to work his way up at Scotland Yard, he started high, and is therefore resented by his colleagues. The novel takes place during the Great Fog of 1952. What a great setting for a spy story, don't you think? When Herbert takes a case involving a man found in the Long Water, he takes on more than he realizes. I loved the character development in this book. Herbert and [...]


    15. BEWARE. I DON'T FLAG SPOILERS. BUT I DON'T PUT MY REVIEWS OUT ON ANY FEED, EITHER.I had never heard of British female scientist Rosalind Franklin, who played a role int he discovery of the double helix nature of DNA, though she was never formally honored -- not even by Watson or Crick, when they received a Nobel prize for their work, which she had unknowingly facilitated.But this mystery -- supposed fiction -- dances through some solid historical facts.I loved the primary characters. Herbert Smi [...]


    16. I like period thrillers and the Cold War era is a great setting. This one makes use of a killer fog/smog that chokes London for days and provides cover for various acts of mayhem. There's a sort of anti-hero who falls in love with a blind girl who survived Mengele. Conniving spies, rival agencies, plenty of gore.But I got sick of the damn fog about halfway through.The characters occasionally break out in decidedly 21st century slang; "Do the math." "Awesome" (not used in the sense of "inspiring [...]


    17. Starling plays fast and loose with history this time. Set in the Great Smog of the early 50s, the story involves a former spy, now a Met Police Detective, investigating a body found floating in the lake in Hyde Park. It soon becomes clear that his former skills and contacts from his spying days are going to come in useful.The cast involves spies from the three main Cold War nations, but which is the murderer, and why. It turns out that the plot revolves around genetics and the race to uncover th [...]


    18. This is a fair book that could have been much better with some judicious editing. There's a lot Starling gets right in my opinion: the brilliant description of the London fog of '52, the subtle characterization of Herbert Smith and of Hannah, an exciting plot that kept me turning pages (all 375 of them). I could have done without the two page description of code cracking (though I loved the details of Smith's crossword puzzle solving), and I skipped the graphic description of Auschwitz horrors. [...]


    19. Visibility is set during the winter of 1952 [when London was shrouded by the Great Fog].Starling makes you want to wheeze as he relates the filth and grime of the fog and how it impacts upon London closing down most transportation routes and poisoning the population with its noxiousness. The "hero-of-the-piece" is Herbert Smith, an ex-MI5 operative who now, as a detective inspector at New Scotland Yard, is called to a suspicious drowning The plot now takes a twist when we discover the identity o [...]


    20. liked this book,I would have given it three and a half given the choice.hadnt read Starling for a while, as hadn't overly enjoyed vodka, but this one was great.I liked the loner we had in Herbert, and thought the setting in the great fog of London was very atmospheric.There were plenty of twists and turns to the plot with spies, and double agents, and more spies, that I never once had an idea who did it which is always good.will be happily passing this on to someone with a thumbs up


    21. A very well detailed and researched murder mystery/espionage novel. The description of London in 1952 is quite amazing and the idea of putting the story in the middle of the London Fog is quite cool. The charcters are a little bit boiler plate and I agree with one of the othe reviewers that the idea of the search for the structure of DNA and its importance seems a little bit transplanted from the present; however it doesn't change the fact this is a really well written and interesting book. Quit [...]


    22. Interesting Cold War spy novel. Involves a LOT of science and one of the most critical discoveries of the 20th century and tied it with one of the worst atrocities of the same time period. Familiar names, locales in London, and an interesting weather phenomenom.Overall, pretty readable until the detailed science explanations, then a glazing of the eyes for this reader. I liked it for the characters and the movement of the plot. Kept it interesting and the reader a little off balance.


    23. Excellent book by an author previously unknown to me. This is a novel about "supposed true facts" and this may be so. It takes place in London during 4 days of extreme fog. (Later, and as a direct result, the Clean Air Act was passed and the pea soup fogs of London soon ended.) It's a murder mystery. The detective soon learns that all the suspects are spies: one each from Great Britain, USA, and the Soviet Union.


    24. This Boris Starling novel was a good one and one that keeps your attention. It starts out with a murder and on the way to solving that murder comes the rest of the book. Interesting, grabbing your attention and you want to finish the book to find out what really happened.J. Robert Ewbank, author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"


    25. It took me awhile to get through the book. I am not sure why. It may be because I did not connect with the characters. Maybe it was because the fog that enveloped London for many days made it feel so dark and sad. It was a bit slow moving at times. But in the end everything came together pretty well.


    26. An atmospheric offering set in 1950s London. Boris Starling paints a picture of the period that is easy to imagine whilst reading the story. Overall I enjoyed the book, although I found some parts just seemed to plod along, and so did not find it quite as gripping as I’d hoped. However, still good enough for 4* in my book.


    27. A great read for the winter. Seeped in excellent research of the period, this book absorbs you on many levels. It leaves you with the feeling that we have, as a society, moved forward in a positive way. It reveals some of the darker parts of the law and customs of this time in our history that is continually blanketed in nostalgia.


    28. Very well written book. "Visibility" is a theme on so many levels in this book. It starts out simple and straightforward and ends with invisible layers of social acceptance, espionage, double entendre, symbolism, and unseen genetic discoveries. This is one of those books that just could gratuate to the corpus of "classical literature".
