There’s hardly a chance for the reader to breathe in this fast-paced novel. Set in a foggy historic Yorkshire town it tells of a murder involving a theatre group, with far-reaching repercussions. At times I thought perhaps there were too many coincidences, but it all fitted together in the end, with just a thread or two left dangling. I enjoyed this classic murder mystery which has interesting characters. It’s the fifth book in a series featuring detective Joe Plantagenet, and I will seek out more. He originally intended to become a priest – useful when there’s the possibility of medieval ghosts being involved.
“I recommend this fast-paced book
it’s definitely worth a look.”
