Product Description

Product Description

New edition by Accent Press 2013.

Murder at the Manse is the fifth installment of Andrea Frazer’s Falconer Files, a detective series chock-full of picture-postcard villages, dastardly deeds, and a delightful slice of humour.

Jefferson Grammaticus and his business partners, Jocelyn and Jerome Freeman, had spent two years on the extensive renovation of a two hundred year old building, set in expansive grounds, with the River Darle as it's northern-most boundary.

The building work was now finished, the decoration and furnishings were in their appointed rooms, rich drapes adorned the windows, and French crystal chandeliers were being hung.
The opening weekend - which included a murder/mystery dinner (in fancy dress) - had been advertised, and bookings taken.
Then finally, after all the work and graft, the decisions, the purchases, the planning and last minute hitches, all was ready.
Grammaticus booked in his first guests with great optimism, believing that 'The Manse' had a sparkling future ahead of it.
He was soon to be disabused of this, however, when two people were killed and another lay gravely ill! And it had all happened on the night of the murder/mystery dinner, except that the bodies were actually dead!
Into this fearful and mistrustful mixture of guests and staff, D I Harry Falconer and D S Davey Carmichael arrive, to try to make sense of how the tragedies had occurred and who was responsible for them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring 6 Sep 2012

Far too much preamble that is not related to the story , just went on and on! Enough! Boring padding. Full of errors. The French accent thing us just cringeworthy, please dont do this. Carmichael's clothing 'joke' is wearing very thin (and that is better pun than many in this book) . Would have made a better short story sans padding. nothing happens till halfway thru book, I like at least one murder by the third (short) chapter!
Just goes to prove you shouldn't buy books because you enjoyed the first one.

I'm a big fan of Andrea Frazer and have read most of her books. I like them because they are brilliant who done its. She writes with humour and her main characters are endearing as she introduces you to their personalities and traits. As soon as I finish one of her books I look for another one. So I would recommend all of her books!

I have just finished this, the 5th in The Falconer Files, and so far they have all been really enjoyable. Easy to put down and pick up where you left off. Looking forward to seeing how the relationship between Falconer and his happy Sergeant, Carmichael, develops in file 6.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the previous 4 3 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although I love the characters of Falconer and Carmichael this latest book had a far too long introduction and I have to admit I did lose interest in it but carried on! Am hoping the rest in the series are more like the previous ones and not this one

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly boring 28 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's getting very repetitious, the sarge is a clown, the DI is single, bit of banter the the phone rings " it's a murder" Not only are the stories all along the same lines but in the next book they are back in the same village as another murder,so same characters not much new. If you read carefully even ..... No let you find out about same blocks of words used.
CarpCatcher.
