Detective Sergeant Guy Poole is hoping to put his traumatic past behind him and settle into his new station at Bexford. Now history is threatening to raise its head again, and he has a murder case to contend with.
Detective Inspector Sam Brock has a new recruit to take under his wing, and he's determined this one isn't going to die. As if that wasn't enough of a headache, his wife is coming home and may be on the verge of discovering the lie he's been telling her.
Newly paired duo Brock and Poole must track down the killer before more lives are lost.

There are also too many aberant apostrophes (the Pagets randomly became the Paget's) and, while I have to put up with with people saying "was sat" and "was stood" in real life, it's poor English and shouldn't be used in writing. I also rather objected to "gotten" cropping up periodically.
The story itself reminded me of one of the telly shows mentioned above. It's like an episode from Midsomer Murders. It's all there. The village green, the cast of local characters, the vicar, the strange person living in the woods. I even pictured in my head the two main characters as looking like John Nettles and his sidekick. But, hey, if you like that sort of thing, then you'll like this, so it's not all bad by any means. The story itself is a suitably polished whodunnit and guessing the real culprit isn't easy. the sup-plots, the recently transferred DS and grumpy DI, the love interests and the errant father of the DS coming out of prison all help to pad things out suitably.
So, if you can look past the inaccuracies, what we are left with is a good, readable story. I nearly scratched two stars off for my overall rating, but on reflection, four stars seems about right. An enjoyable read.
