indexThis book has been on my #TBR list forever. I have been watching as reviewers that I respect heaped praise upon praise it and following Diana Febry’s tweets as she, rightly, bragged about her award winning book. I really wanted to read this book and Finally!!!! I have.

I had no idea that this was part of a three book series. It is perfectly written to stand alone with information from the prior books fitting nicely into the current story-line. The novel follows detectives Peter Hatherall and Fiona Williams into the English countryside as they investigate vandalism on a local farm. The ties to a infamous incident involving the farmer, James Palmer, seem obvious, but truthfully as not well liked as he is in the community, anyone could be behind the harassment. The situation quickly escalates as petty incidents become deadly attacks on the Palmer family. The matter is further complicated when the main person of interest turns up dead in a seemingly unrelated case.

This book was worth the wait, there are few settings better for a mystery the English countryside, with its vast array of quirky character archetypes and this story rivals the best. The mystery deepens as each plot twist fits itself into the growing story. There are several wonderful sub-stories woven into it making it a compelling read. Even when you are sure you know who done it, the read to the end will keep you on the edge of your seat. If you aren’t already a fan of this author, this book will make that happen.
