A brilliant story.the exploits of the human characters are nearly eclipsed by those of the animals, especially Maurice with the eyeball. A perfect read on a cold wet day.

In BONES IN HIGH PLACES, Suzette A. Hill gives us the fourth instalment of the Rev. Francis Oughterard's adventures as he tries to avoid the murder of Elizabeth Fotherington catching up with him (see A LOAD OF OLD BONES). This time he's forced to go to an old château in France, and, naturally enough, Bouncer the dog and Maurice the cat conspire to go with him. This is a delightfully written book with some old friends, such as the Bishop, Horace Clinker and his wife, the oddly attractive Nicholas and Francis's sister, Primrose, determined to sell her pictures of sheep. However, underneath the lightheartedness (and there's a lot of genuine lightheartedness) there's a real undercurrent of threat and menace. This is a cracking fourth instalment and a welcome addition to the story of Francis's troubled life.

The fourth book in the saga of Bouncer the dog, Maurice the cat and the Rev Francis Oughterard, murderer and vicar of the parish of Molehill. This time the trio are involved in an imbroglio in the Auvergne along with Bishop Clinker and the various characters from earlier books. While the story and writing continue to be entertaining, I found it increasingly irritating to be referred by asterisks in nearly every chapter to what has occurred in the previous volumes. It would be well-nigh impossible to have a clue what was going on in this book unless you had read the preceding ones. So be warned, if you are going to tackle this hugely enjoyable series, read them in order.

This is book 4 in a series of 5. To fully enjoy you need to start with book 1 and work through the series. I would say that what you have here is one book sold in five parts - rather a clever marketing ploy! Featuring talking animals could have been twee but the author avoids this trap. Bouncer and Maurice are concerned for their master's welfare mainly because they want to protect their comfortable life at the vicarage. Their observations on plot developments add to the fun. The mid-1950's setting is well suited to this type of cosy English murder and criminality.

The adventures with Rev. Oughterard Maurice and Bouncer continue, this time in France. Another really good book in this very fun series. In my opinion this one is not quite as good as book 1 but it is still great. I recommend the whole series, but do start with book 1 A Load of Old Bones it's a really fantastic read.

The book is out of print now so I bought a secondhand hardback copy which, from the labels and stamps, had been an Edinburgh library copy. It was in very good condition. The story carries on from the previous three books with the action taking place in France with all the usual characters including the dog and cat!

Speedy response - Took a little time to get into the series (5 books), but then found them to be amusing and enjoyable light reading. I think they are written well and interesting to read the author's interruption of how the Cat and Dog view things from their perspective.
