5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Easy Read
Set in an English country house, this story could be Agatha Christie with puns. I like the friendly writing style and the dialogue which carries the nicely complicated plot along at a steady pace throughout. Almost every character has a motive for Inspector Constable to investigate, and the reader is kept guessing right up to the denouement, with all suspects gathered...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mildly amusing mystery
Quite enjoyed this, but did not feel hooked by the detectives. Amusing and quite a good read though, and I didn't guess the murderer.

Set in an English country house, this story could be Agatha Christie with puns. I like the friendly writing style and the dialogue which carries the nicely complicated plot along at a steady pace throughout. Almost every character has a motive for Inspector Constable to investigate, and the reader is kept guessing right up to the denouement, with all suspects gathered together in the drawing room. Great fun, and I recommend this book to anyone who likes light-hearted mysteries.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Liked the characters and didn't suspect the identity of the murderer as there were plenty red herrings scattered throughout the book. Will certainly read more Inspector Constable books.

This review is from: Murderer's Fete: an Inspector Constable murder mystery (The Inspector Constable murder mysteries Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
A witty little book, the joy is in the punning names - think Private Eye's "pseudo-names," but rather less contrived: the astrologer "Horace Cope" is my favourite, but there are many others, some of which are better read out loud a few times so you get the meaning, and these establish what the book really is, a sort of parlour game to be lazily enjoyed after a pleasant tea and when, rarely, there isn't an episode of "Midsomer Murders" on the television to while away a couple of hours. The plot itself moves along quite quickly with a few red herrings and a typical set of country house characters and motives, all that's missing is a dedication to Miss Muriel Lake, who likes to be called "Mu." For Mu Lake.
