Critic reviews

"Granger has combined the cozy with the procedural for an engrossing look at an English village, one that pulls aside the veil of comfort to reveal the wickedness lurking beneath." ( Dallas Morning News)

Excellent story well read

Ann Granger doesn't disappoint with this carefully-crafted story excellently read by Judith Boyd. You really want to know what happens next. All the characters are well-drawn so one doesn't get confused as to who is whom, which I find can happen when one listens to rather than reads a story.

Not bad

This is a pleasant enough English mystery, well-narrated, and easy to listen to. The story is quite predictable, but it is easy to follow and quite like a summer-read. I'd give it a 3.75 if I had the choice, but not quite a 4.

Compelling Murder Mystery

This is another solid effort from Ann Granger. Audible did well to add her to the list of authors.

Looking forward to listening to the rest of her titles - the reader is also a delight.

Enjoyable mystery

Ann Granger’s books are a cut above the usual cozy mystery. They are very well written. I’ll miss the Mitchell and Markby series, as believe this is the last. The stories are perfect for the audio format, and very well read by Judith Boyd.

Interesting characters

Quite pleasant and interesting, though perhaps not riveting.
I found the ultimate solution not fully believable in all aspects and we seemed to meander past "the end" for a little while.
