3.0 out of 5 stars Murder on the canal, 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Last Ditch (The Alleyn Mysteries) (Paperback)
This is a different Inspector Alleyn mystery, in that it is his wife, Troy, who is centre-stage for much of the story. Troy takes to the canal in a pleasure-craft for a bit of peaceful painting - only to find that one of her fellow-passengers goes overboard in the middle of the night. There are mysteries about most of Troy's erstwhile companions, who are a motley group of customers. She pops off to report her suspicions when the boat stops for the night at various towns along the canal. The plodding policemen she encounters are probably the weakest part of the story. Once Alleyn himself becomes involved, the action hots up and the denouement is well-handled and unexpected (to me anyway!).
