This series has a familiarity to it; the same area, the same locations, the same characters and the same local sleuths; Carole Seddon and her neighbour Jude.
Carole comes across a bag full of human bones whilst out walking one wet miserable day. The shock of her find turns to intrigue as she (plus Jude) want to find out the truth about who these bones belong to and how they came to be so carelessly left where they could be found.
Brett introduces local characters to keep the red herrings and the story alive. Especially when the locals believe it is a missing woman who fell ill and seemingly disappears. Jude knows this missing woman and about her illness; but also knows that something is wrong, and her mothers' reactions to the bones being found is out of the ordinary. Even DS Lennie Bayliss's lack of detecting on the case and lack of concern about illegal activities in his village is strange.
Together Carole and Jude use the skills they have to finally reach the correct conclusion but not without some serious consequences along the way.
The second book builds on the two main characters Carole and Jude and we find more about their background d, especially Jude who though we see an insight into her life, still remains ever mysterious to use the reader and her neighbour Carole who just will not ask the right questions!
Cannot wait to read the 3rd book, hoping that Jude opens up to her friend more next time?
