Summary

No one feels safe when there's a murderer in their midst....

Ann Granger returns to her fan favourite series with the gripping 16th Mitchell and Markby novel, featuring her trademark strong and appealing characters, gentle wit and engrossing intrigue.

Superintendent Alan Markby and his wife, Meredith, have retired for the night when they are disturbed by a visitor. It's not the first time someone has called at the Old Vicarage in search of a priest, but in this case, having just found a dead body in the churchyard, Callum Henderson needs the police. Accompanying Callum to the graveyard, Alan declares that this has all the hallmarks of a murder scene.

News of the incident travels fast in the market town of Bamford, but no one seems willing to admit to knowing the dead man or how he ended up in the cemetery. As Alan and his team search for clues, Meredith becomes convinced that something must have been overlooked. Meanwhile, despite Alan's warnings, Callum appears to be in cahoots with the team's latest recruit, DS Beth Santos. While every lead points to yet more foul play, nothing can prepare Meredith and Markby for the shocking truth behind this mystery....

Not Bad. But Not Great

I think I own be it on Audible Tape or CD the entire works of Ann Granger and I was so looking forward to this. However it is by no means her best. A bit slow and to be honest I had guest the outcome about half way through. Saying that the end is well written I just feel it could be shortened by at least an hour with no loss to the plot. If you are already a fan still worth a credit. If not I would start with some of her earlier works

If you enjoyed the previous, you'll like this too

Have to say I kept finding it annoying how female voices sound by this (female!) reader. They sound sort of whiny and silly, even the strong ones. However, I love the atmosphere of all Granger's series and quirky but often relatable characters in it.
