I would be happy to "gift" a no-strings Kindle copy for a review. Alas, this only exists as an e-book!
AN AMERICAN GUIDE TO WHAT THOSE BRITISH DETECTIVES ARE SAYING ON THE TELLY
What, exactly, do "faffing," "grafter," "doolally," and "fly tipping" have in common? If you need to ask, then you ought to be reading this quick and light-hearted guide to understanding what our favorite British detectives are saying while solving crimes across the pond!!
Ideal for fans of Midsomer Murders, Vera, Shetland and more, this insightful and essential list is designed to help every American fan of British detective fiction who longs for a SECOND set of subtitles to interpret the slang and idioms that turn up in the FIRST set.
The author, an award-winning author and a former prosecuting attorney for the State, had for years found herself flummoxed by unfamiliar phrases like "fly tipping" and "on licence" while watching her favorite British cop shows and mysteries. Torn between the desire to pause the action to consult Google every time she was stumped by things like "belts and braces" and "digestive biscuits" or to just keep watching and hope that things would become clear later, she created this helpful guide for others in the same linguistic boat.
A rollicking good laugh...and an incredibly useful one, to boot!
