Oh no, DI Hillary Greene is retiring! Luckily she isn’t off on her canal boat quite yet, and this latest installment kept me amused on a long plane journey. There is a nice reflective tone to this book, and it balances well with Hillary’s feisty character. Read more here
The murder victim, Michael Ivers, was brutally killed with a few bashes to the head. Known as a gambler and a philanderer, he wasn’t much liked by anyone. The question is … which of those who didn’t like him actually killed him? Read more here
I have been a fan of Faith Martin for a while- in fact since the moment I ‘gatecrashed’ the blog tour for ‘Murder At The University’. I eagerly devour (not literally as paper doesn’t taste very nice) each and every book that is released in the series featuring Detective Inspector Hilary Greene and her team. The latest book in the series ‘Murder At Work’ has just been released and I absolutely loved it but more about that in a bit. Read more here
I loved the story and squeaked at each twist and turn in my usual way. Although Hillary’s team has been depleted by Keith’s departure and Gemma’s forthcoming marriage, Hillary still gives the investigation her full attention, not allowing even Janine’s ongoing troubles to faze her. Read more here
