good story.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this story describing what forensic tools were available in the 1950's and the lifestyle of that period of time.
as Bernard knight was a pathologist at that period of time he should know what he is writing about making it authentic. it is explained that the characters are all fictional but the area in which the stories are set factual.
Jonathon keeble did a good job of performing the book.
looking forward to the next book.

Whining nostalgia

Before this book even begins the author talks about setting it before the era of modern policing and specifically “health and safety and political correctness “. This favourite whinge of the baby boomers made me nervous and indeed the first couple of chapters were tediously nostalgic.
