Format: Paperback
Another Inspector Jury and Melrose Plant mystery set in Shakespearian Stratford. A select group of American tourists appear to the target of a madman, with brutal murder and kidnapping topping the list. Well structured, rounded and recognisable characters, and a style that flows makes this an easy and enjoyable read. Buy it, and curl up in a chair for a few hours.

I discovered this author by mistake & enjoyed this one (the 1st I read) so much that I tried to source them online. All used but this was in very good condition with no markings. A good bargain indeed!

Highly entertaining - not least because of the totally inappropriate use of Americanisms in the mouths of terribly English characters ! The construction is excellent with the strand of the little boy running through the other action beautifully.

Read this years ago when I used to visit Stratford quite often and have been to many of the places mentioned. Not quite sure how the 'detective' worked out the murderer but enjoyed it anyway.
