I m so glad this was my first read book in 2010 Way to start out the year If you like a British mystery with an old time feel written by a man who knows how to write then you ve found a great new series I almost checked my classics shelf when I logged this one in because in many ways it feels like a classicAndrew Taylor makes his characters real in a masterful sense Fiona who has been pushing all manner of Andrew Taylor novels on me for some time says He gets you to know these characters he writes without you really seeing how he does it I can t say it any better than that When you care about even the villains and minor characters like the clerks and barmaids you know you ve found a great talentHis prose is very succinct You ll not be slogging through pages and pages to get to the meat of anything here You ll uickly move from appetizers to the main course I love the short chapters sometimes only a page or two Each chapter follows a different set of characters or flashes to a different scene I like that Not only does it keep me turning the pages to read just one chapter but I don t get bored staring at the same faces and placesThe plot was good but not earth shattering I would have liked it if he d revealed a bit less to the reader so we could have puzzled over a few things for a bit longer He did throw in a twist toward the very end that did rock my world a bit and I was grateful for thatThe main characters are so interesting and as well as I feel I know them they have depth so I want to learn I will definitely continue on with this series I love a mystery with that great British backdrop of fog mist and rain There is nothing better Thank you Fiona for not giving up and pushing this book at me until I finally read it
