I enjoyed the previous book (Requiem Mass) by this author and was not disappointed by this story of the next murder case for DCI Fenwick, and DSs Cooper and Nightingale. As in the previous book I felt I was accompanying the police officers on a case as evidence was uncovered, suspects interviewed and the internal politics of the police force were acted out. It's a long book and, apart from an unrealistic section of psychological speculation, was an engrossing narrative. I needed to concentrate at the beginning of the book as an array of characters are introduced during a family gathering as a Will is read and I wasn't sure was whom, but as the story unfolded they began to crystallize in my mind's eye.
The narrator is good, which helps differentiate the players in this complex web of deceit.

If you like your crime to be gritty like, say, Simon Kernick, this is probably not for you. If, on the other hand, you're more a Midsomer Murders or Daziel & Pascoe fan, then this could be right up your street. It's a good story and well narrated but the premise is unrealistic and the plot has one or two holes. Having said that, it's an enjoyable listen (as are Elizabeth Corley's other books) and not too demanding. Perfect to chill out with!

I could not put this book down.
I intend to get the other book written by the author when I have my credits again next month..

It took me about a chapter to start really understanding the character dynamics and I was hooked! This book rocks and I am only disappointed that I can't listen to the others.
