Product Description

Book Description

The hunt is on for a killer in Mitchell and Markby's second colourful mystery

Product Description

It is with some trepiditation that Meredith Mitchell returns to the Cotswolds: the Bamford district holds memories that, to put it generously, are bittersweet, and Christmas is a difficult time to find oneself a stranger in a new area.  Yet she receives a kindly welcome, in particular from her old acquaintance Chief Inspector Markby and from her new neighbour Harriet Needham, a striking redhead with whom Meredith immediately feels a certain kinship. But Meredith has barely got to know her neighbour when Harriet is involved in a shocking - and fatal - accident at the Boxing Day Hunt.  Witnesses to the death are plentiful, for the incident occurred in Bamford's crowded market square, and many are adamant it's a case of murder.  Chief Inspector Markby is inclined to agree, although he suspects the guilty party is not the most obvious one.  Before long Meredith Mitchell begins, reluctantly, to think he might be right ...

3.0 out of 5 stars An Agatha Christie-ish who-dunnit 25 July 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second in the Mitchell & Markby novels and I'm sure they improved as time went on. The first two were quite basic (a lot of the writing seemed to be written by a school-girl) and actually had very little plot. The author's heroines seem to be marked by an incredible indecisiveness about their relationships.

Having said that, they were pleasant enough reads and 3 stars may be a bit harsh (but I was worried that 4 would imply it was better than I thought it was).

5.0 out of 5 stars Murder in a quiet English village 21 July 2012
By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER
This is the second in the series of Mitchell and Markby Village Whodunnits - the first, Say It With Poison, was a good murder mystery and an enjoyable read.

In this book, Meredith Mitchell has received a Foreign Service posting at home, and has rented a relative's cottage in a place called "Pook's Common" while she is posted in Britain. While there, she meets up with some of the local residents, and there is a terrible tragedy at the Boxing Day Hunt. Or is it an accident? Are some of the residents hiding something? Or is there all something they're missing? Meredith meets up again with Inspector Alan Markby, and their `relationship' seems to be going nowhere; Meredith values her independence and isn't sure of Markby's intentions; Markby is dedicated to his work.

These are great stories; I like the way that we see the action in the story not just from Meredith and Alan's perspective, but from the perspective of others in the book; some fleeting, some integral to the story. It allows the reader to really get `inside' the story, and to see motivation and action from many angles. The writing is witty and engaging, the characters are well rounded and the reader is left wanting to know more about what might happen in the future to them; at least we get to read more of Meredith and Alan in their next mystery story. Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another engrossing and well-plotted story 27 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's a few weeks since I read it so the details of the plot have been forgotten, but the books in this series have all been interesting and well written. Good, reliable whodunnit stuff. It would have had 5 stars if the actual Headline copy hadn't been so tiny and cheap-looking.
