I love to read and I love to listen. I enjoy a wide range of tastes, and only really leave a review when I think the book merits one!
I love this author, so am sorry if I get a little carried away. But, the Markby and Mitchell books are great, the story is an interesting one and part of the book you know what is coming. But the ending is always a big slap in the face, and for me I have ruled out the killer at the start. If you have never had an Ann Granger book, please try this series.
This is a well written and absorbing good old english murder mystery. A tangle of hidden secrets come to the fore after the murder of Andrew Penhallow, secrets that have been hidden for many years from his family.
Superintendent Markby and his girlfriend Meredith are set the task of unravelling this sudden death and at the same time attempting to establish their own relationship on a more permanant footing. The characters were believable and the plot well devised.
This book continues the Markby/ Mitchell relationship in the pleasant easy stye as previous novels whilst a good no too complicated mystery goes on arround it. An ecellent listen for in car entertainment on long journeys.
This good book was spoiled by the sometimes loud sometimes almost inaudible sound track. Also the "Prime of Miss Jean Broady" pseudo Edinburgh accent intermittently inflicted on M.Mitchell was really irritating
The opening was intriguing and the rolling investigation kept me wondering what was going on.
The opening section.
Enjoyed it a great deal
