Meredith Mitchell takes pity on a hitchhiker just outside Bamford but there is something about the young woman which makes her uneasy. She drops her at the gates of Tudor Lodge, the home of Brussels based Lawyer, Andrew Penhallow and his TV celebrity wife, Carla. When Andrew is found murdered in his garden the next morning by his distraught wife, Meredith immediately remembers the hitchhiker.

I worked out who the murderer was quite quickly and what the murder weapon was but it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the story. I thought the book was well plotted in spite of this and there are plenty of clues. I think there are maybe not enough suspects but it was still interesting seeing how the evidence is pieced together by Superintendent Alan Markby and his team.

If you like your crime novels low key with interesting characters and backgrounds then this series might be worth a try. The novels are best read in the order in which they were written because of the development of the relationship between the main characters.

Slightly different to a lot of the Anne Grainger's that I've read. Markby & Makepeace were for a lot of the book, in the background with Sergeant Prescott being given a prominent role. It would be fascinating to know the author's reasons for doing this. Some of the other characters were great, particularly Kate Drago. I did feel that this simple story got stuck somewhat in the middle section of the book & it seemed to take quite a while for the plot to move on. But the solution was satisfactory and this was an easy read.

I'm a great fan of this author, but I confess I was a little disappointed with this one. I thought early on that I knew where the story was going, but thought something unexpected would happen to change it. Sadly it didn't. Bill Wallis was an excellent narrator. I shall be looking for more of his work.

Apart from:
1. knowing 'who done it' from about three chapters in (or was it two?)
2. a formulaic plot (yes, I know, probably an unfair comment, it's one reason we buy 'who done its' isn't it?)
3. a sense that the author was going through the motions and not putting any effort into it (bills to pay I expect)...

This was just about okay.

I've read a fair few of this series over the years, and there really was a sludgy feel to this book; it actually took me several tries to get through the first few pages. I wonder if Ms Granger is going off her main characters and really couldn't be fagged to put a bit more zip into her prose?

I have read all the previous Mitchell and Markby books , and this was the worst one, I guessed the subplot in the first few pages , and knew 'whodunit' as soon as the character was introduced into the story!.
I thought the Meredith and Alan storyline, was going to move on a little but no, and it is getting boring, this is the 11th book and therefore it must be some years since they met its unbelievable .
