Summary

It wasn't the rain that upset Carole Seddon during her walk on the West Sussex Downs. It wasn't the dilapidated barn in which she was forced to seek shelter. No, what upset her most was the human skeleton she discovered there....

So begins the second investigation for straitlaced Carole and her more laid-back neighbour Jude. This time their enquiries take them away from Fethering to the small download hamlet of Weldsham, where gossips quickly identify the corpse as Tamsin Lutteridge, a young woman who had disappeared from the village months before....

An easy and enjoyable read.

How fortunate I was to have discovered Simon Brett. I love how his murder mystery stories don't attempt to win readers by shocking them with blood and gore but simply take them on a delightful journey to the end of the mystery. His characters are so like many people I know, I feel like I could be living in the fictional town of Feathering. Simon Brett is also a wonderful narrator with a clear, eloquent voice that matches his stories perfectly. Although this is only the second book of his I have read, I am already looking forward to the rest of the series.
