With some serials, the output diminishes over time, with the writing becoming formulaic and staid. However, Sally Spencer (nom de guerre of Alan Rustage) continues to deliver taut, suspenseful police procedurals.
"Lambs to the Slaughter" is the 5th entry in the series (25th if you consider the 20 books in which DCI Charlie Woodend is the primary protagonist and Paniatowski is his protégé) , set in 1970's Northern England. This book revolves around a potential coal strike and a murder in the town of Bellingsworth.
The mystery itself is complex. However, the hallmark of this series is the continued development of the police team. I look forward to many more books in this wonderful series and anticipate more intricate mysteries and more windows into the characters.
Another great joy is the brilliant delivery of Penelope Freeman. She captures wonderfully the accents and characters of the book, male and female.
