Nice start of a new series!
Reviewed in the United States on October 11, 2019
Having read all books in the Dark Yorkshire series, and having liked the series a lot, it was a natural progression to start reading a new series written by Mr Dalgliesh. Again, as with Yorkshire, I get a good feel for location. The character development is coming along nicely, and I can’t wait to see how things will be coming along.
While some readers may find it boring, I think the thought processes being described are an important part of the solving the mystery. There seem to be differences in some laws between the US and the UK. It sometimes puzzles me a bit, but eventually things become clearer. That’s not to say that one is better than the other, just that there are differences.
I appreciate a detective who isn’t an alcoholic, or deeply damaged in some way, who doesn’t have to battle internal politics all the time, and who doesn’t drive an old beat-up car. I like this new detective! Can’t wait for the next installment!
