4.0 out of 5 stars Try putting it down. 21 Feb. 2013

Now a little dated but if you like any of his other books you will enjoy this one. Must say that I like the "Swann on wheels" and "The Horseman Riding By" sets better but that could be 'cos you have more chance of getting into the series and they are is about a young newspaper reporter set in the west country & does hav e some nice twists to it.

The story itself is ok but I was disappointed that this cost the same as longer books by the same author. Not value for money I think.
