Publisher's Summary

The first thrilling installment of the Campbell and Carter mysteries.

When the body of a young woman is discovered in the cowshed of Cricket Farm, the tranquility of the British countryside is shattered. Inspector Jess Campbell is on the case, but with few leads, a grumbling partner, and the new superintendent Ian Carter piling on the pressure, she's beginning to wonder why she chose to be a detective in the first place.

The shifty land-owner Eli Smith seems to have something to hide, and as Campbell delves into the gruesome past of the dilapidated farm, the mystery deepens. A flashy Mercedes spotted fleeing the scene of the crime leads to a suspect, but when another body turns up, it looks as though Campbell's lead is nothing but a dead end....

Boring

I am a big fan of British mysteries, but this one is a talky snooze-fest. Do not recommend.

Eh

Solution came out of nowhere. Very little connection with Jess the inspector. Narration saved it.

The characters just never came alive to me. It's a shame because I know it's a series and I'm looking for a new one to listen to.

My favorite kind of mystery - rural, British, intelligent, good story line,
a fine narrator, some lovely characters, some bad guys, some very odd guys and people getting coshed on the head rather than stabbed or shot....most of the coshed come around saying, " No, I'm fine." refusing a trip to the ER. I wish now I'd counted them... The author may have set a record :-) I liked this book, now I must go check what else Audible has by her.
