    Description

    The start of a brand-new series from the global best-selling author of the DI Hillary Greene series.

    Oxford, 1960. There's a murderer on the loose, and two unlikely heroes are poised to solve the case.

     Meet Probationary WPC Trudy Loveday - smart, enthusiastic and always underestimated.

     In the hope of getting her out of the way, Trudy’s senior officer assigns her to help coroner Clement Ryder as he re-opens the case of a young woman's death. She can't believe her luck – she is actually going to be working on a real murder case. 

    Meanwhile, the rest of the police force are busy investigating a series of threats and murders in the local community, and Clement can't help but feel it's all linked.

    As Trudy and Clement form an unlikely partnership, are they going to be the ones to solve these crimes before the murderer strikes again?

    A gripping, twisty crime novel that you won't be able to pause. Perfect for fans of Agatha Christie and M.C. Beaton.

    Great book

    Faith Martin's books never disappoint. Always such great portraits of people and her heroine is so convincing it's always a pleasure to read more about her life. This is my first audio book for her and I wasn't at all disappointed which is not easy as I've read the entire series and was wondering how I'd find the audio experience

    Just didn't buy it

    Clement Ryder, s retire surgeon turned Coroner, who we are reminded is "old" in every other sentence in the scenes in which he appears, teams up with WPC Trudy Loveday, a wet behind the ears 19 year old Probationary WPC who thinks she should be a detective, are paired up to reinvestigate an old death and its connection to a current murder. If Trudy had been on the force for a number of years and had been held back because she was a woman, I might have been more sympathetic with her constant internal complaining. Obviously she doesn't understand about paying your dues. I was also perplexed because she never mentions any other women in the police force or the status of women during the time period.

    The story is told by a narrator who skips from character to character so fast in some scenes it is hard to follow who is acting or speaking. We are told at the beginning that the story is in the 1960, which is good because the lack of setting and description could set this story in many different decades. There are no references to 1960 culture, music, politics or literature to ground the reader. Though we do know Trudy's mother has a bakelite radio.

    I might have considered a two star because the mystery is interesting until the ending. The buildup for a terrible revelation from the victims mother falls flat. Not only was the solution to the murders a stretch and a bit ridiculous, the fact that Trudy and the "old man" elicited a confession from the murderer without informing him/her of his/her rights, was unacceptable behavior on both their parts.

    I can't see myself joining Ryder and Loveday for further adventures.

    The first entry in a challenging series

    Faith Martin knows how to weave a tale. A little bit police procedural, a little bit cozy mystery and filled with interesting characters. This is the first in a series and I look forward to the team of one young female newbie policewoman and a dapper but crotchety former heart surgeon turned coroner. Fascinating pairing isn’t it!

    Great new series

    Enjoyed it. Would recommend it. Would listen to another. Not too corny and the ending is possibly which a lot of books don't have these days.

    Another good read by Faith Martin!

    I miss my Hillary Greene and Jenny Starling series, but maybe this series woul end up being just a good. This book is definitely not a bad start to a new set of mysteries!

    Could not stop listening!

    I became a Faith Martin’s fan. Awesome story (I will not say what I liked about the story to not give away any spoilers) with a great style. Enough detail to give color on characters and not too much to be boring. Great hints of humor. Perfect narration.
