I've read almost all of the Mitchell/Markaby series
and am thrilled that Audible has added so many of the titles recently.
The village of Lower Stovey virtually becomes a character itself in this novel. Old Billy,Dillys(sp)and others
are unforgettable just as is the Vicar's daughter who never fit into village life. The relationship of Mitchell and Markaby, whose love story is a strange one, takes
several twists in this tale. Markaby is at his best solving both an ancient murder and new ones
as well. He never gives up on a case.
If you love English mysteries that keep you guessing,this one is it. Narrator Judith Bond is a
national treasure in her ability to interpret characters in every one of these books. I also
recommend Say It With Poison as the first book and
a really superb story as well.

This was my first listen to books in this series, and it has turned out to be my favorite. The story is downright fascinating when compared with the others, although it's pretty tame and gives a grotesquely quaint view (at times) of a very sickening crime that occurred far too often. I don't think I even want to feel burlap again, never mind smell it. I've been listening to "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" trilogy, and for those of you who've read them and this book, you'll appreciate my desire to see Lisbeth Salander come to Stovey Woods (excuse all typos -- typing from memory only).

One is carried along by the narrative eager to find out what happens next. The characters are well-drawn so one doesn't get confused who is whom. Carol Boyd is an excellent reader.
