5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 9 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Killings at Badger's Drift (Midsomer Murders Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Miss Simpson is found dead in her cottage. Her friend Lucy Bellringer does not believe it is natural causes and Chief Inspector Barnaby starts to think she might be right though his first impressions were that she just did not want to accept her friend was dead. He uncovers a web of secrets in the village of Badger's Drift including a particularly creepy undertaker and his even creepier mother.

This is the first book by Caroline Graham I've read and I am impressed by her writing. I thought her characters were convincing and well drawn and the plot is excellent. I didn't work out who the murderer was until very close to the end of the book. While there is an extremely unpleasant murder part way through the book it isn't described in graphic detail and is probably all the more shocking because it isn't described.

I like DI Barnaby and his sidekick Sgt Troy with his lady killing tendencies and his radical left wing views. I have never watched the TV series of Midsummer Murders but I definitely like this book and I shall be going on to read the rest of the series. If you like traditional murder mysteries with a village setting then try Caroline Graham's novels.
