Publisher's Summary

Life for Henrietta Jenkins was a quiet, well-ordered affair - a home with her widowed mother and degree studies at university. But her life changed dramatically when, just before her 21st birthday, her mother’s body was found in a quiet road, apparently the victim of a hit-and-run driver. For not only did the simple case turn into a murder hunt, but the post mortem also revealed that Grace Jenkins had never had any children. In which case, who was Henrietta?

A really good, gentle murder mystery!

Having romped through all the Agatha Raisin books and thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them, I was looking for something similar to replace them but really struggling to find anything. After googling similar reads, I came across the Inspector Sloane series by Catherine Aird and I'm really hooked. Like Agatha Raisin, they're not gory, they're a whodunnit. The writing is excellent, the pace is gentle yet compelling and Robin Bailey is just superb as the narrator - his voice is quite beautiful. They're a different tone to what I was looking for but they're still so good yet in a different way. I'm really looking forward to listening to every book in the series

Very Dated

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The idea of the plot is good and could have developed into a great storyline. Unfortunately the writing is so dated and stilted it made for a rather 'cringe' listen. Published in 1968 but not the 1968 that I remember, even in the heart of rural Derbyshire. This harks back to some mythic 'Christie-esque' place and time. The best that can be said is the welcome absence of 'F' in the mouths of every character.
