I found it a very clear book to read. The characters were well drawn and easy to remember, the names were selected well. The period detail was elegantly included: it conjured up another era without eclipsing the more timeless human drama taking place. Scenes that might have been grisly were handled in a way that made them haunting, even poetic.
The language and dialogue also recalled the era vividly, never veering into modern slang.
Abbs was a compelling hero and more of him would be welcome. I'm probably not alone in hoping that a certain romance may come to pass for him in a future novel.
Fans of classic British murder mysteries and vintage mysteries will find much to enjoy here. Despite the dark themes (to be found in any novel of this genre of course) it's a pleasant read, and poignant and times. I will certainly be buying future Abbs novels.
The story is quick-moving,detailed and intriguing and I hope this author has further plans by for Abbs. Mr Bainbridge won't be able to be write them quick enough for me!
..and, no, I didn't guess 'who-did-it' !
The victim is Miss Chorley from Tower House, a sanctimonious spinster who does good works.
The suspects range from the ladies of Seaborough, to a maid who was recently dismissed. In fact like every good crime thriller there are many with a motive to murder.
Inspector Abbs and his side-kick, Sergeant Reeves have to sift through the alibis and evidence, but before they find the killer another murder occurs.
I really enjoyed this book and was drawn back in time to days before the mobile phone.
The quality of writing is excellent and I will certainly read more from this author.
