From the first minute Simone goes missing, the reader is pulled into the small, slightly off world of Fawcet Green. The reader is introduced to all its amazing little quirks systematically household by household. The book keeps you on the edge of your seat whilst you travel through the suspicions of Barnaby throughout the case. Look forward to a surprise ending to this book, one of Caroline Grahams best!

Simone Hollingsworth fails to turn up for bell ringing practice and her husband says she has gone to visit her mother who is ill. But some of the villagers know that can't be right because Simone's mother died some years ago. Her husband seems to be behaving rather strangely too and when he is found dead Barnaby and Troy are sent to investigate what proves to be a very complex case.

Village life with all its gold fish bowl qualities is very well described as are the villagers themselves. I failed to work out what was going on until Barnaby himself suddenly worked it out. The clues are there when you look back but most readers will miss them I think. I liked the characters and thought they were well done especially the colourful and eccentric Elfrida and her friend Cubby who both see more than most people.

Troy and Barnaby are interesting characters themselves and their relationship is not always as smooth as it might be. Troy is a misogynist and fond of inappropriate jokes and comments which frequently annoy and disgust Tom Barnaby. I liked the glimpses the reader gets of Barnaby's home life where his indigestion problems are less common since he took over the cooking.

This is a well written book and a well written series where the characters are far from two dimensional and things don't always work out perfectly. Motivations are well drawn and the reader feels some sympathy for the villains even though they are guilty. If you like your crime novels in the classic mould then give this series a try - they can be read in any order.

Excellent again. Caroline Graham knows how to treat her readers to a feast of surprises with the wonderful Barnaby in the out-of this-world-village-to-die-for where crime itself seems surreal. Her novels are always gripping page-turners and here's another one. Delicious. Graham comes with a guarantee. She never disappoints.

I have deducted one point because there is one aspect of the unfolding drama that is very easy to guess right from the start. I kept thinking "Why does no one explore that possibility?" However, and although it turned out, inevitably, that I had guessed right (I don't mean inevitably because I am an incredibly gifted amateur sleuth but simply because it was amazingly obvious) the story still gripped me and as always I read on and on until I had reached the final page. And just as always Caroline Graham's character depiction is near perfect: accurate, detailed, sympathetic, astute and her style impeccable. Add to that her witty prose ( I really laughed this time when reading about Troy nearly dislocating his jaw while trying to prise it open after having consumed one of Mrs Molfrey's delicacies...)The more of her novels I read the more I have to deplore that she wrote so few of her excellent Barnaby stories.

I love this series of books featuring D.I Tom Barnaby and D.S Gavin Troy. They are set in sleepy, picturesque villages where everyone knows everyone's business, and murder and skullduggery are the order of the day.
I dislike the book version of Gavin Troy who is vain and arrogant, the polar opposite of his TV counterpart.
This aside, "Faithful unto Death" is a clever, suspenseful tale that kept me guessing to the end.

I have always enjoyed murder mystery books and I came along Caroline Graham, Faithful unto Death was the first book I read of hers and I must say I was impressed, I have since read a number of her books, they are gripping, written well and have a few twists and turns, I would recommend them if you enjoy the murder genre.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of the Inspector Barnaby series on which the ever popular TV series Midsommer Murders is based.
In this book we have 2 missing women, 2 mysterious deaths, a kidnapping and plenty of village gossip. It isn't a book which lacks substance!
I very much liked the character of Barnaby in this book. He seems a nice enough guy, he makes some mistakes, he loves his family, is occasionally weak and has the odd not very nice moment - a typical human. Troy, on the other hand, was not at all what I expected. He is not a nice man being extremely sexist and enjoying making some other people's lives a misery. Personally I felt that Barnaby should have reigned him in a bit more. In reality I could see him facing more than one disciplinary for his behaviour. There are several not very nice characters in this book - I won't mention who as this is part of the twists towards the end of the plot.
This is a good, solid detective story. There are plenty of twists, a few which were perhaps a twist too far for reality but that is not uncommon in a detective book. The characters had substance and personality. The setting in a small village was well described if a little twee in places. I also found myself smiling at some of the characters and their actions.
There is nothing really sensational about this book. There is no "wow" factor but there was plenty to keep me reading and wanting to find out what happened. I don't think I'd necessarily seek out any more of this series but should one come my way then I would be quite happy to settle down and read it.
