Another very good read in a winning formula. Multiple murders in an art gallery. Another murder mystery in which a disproportionate number of suspects turn out be gay. I enjoyed it on the whole but was seriously annoyed when I guessed the next victim but the detective team did not. More mental handwringing by the chief detective moaning "I should have known". And me yelling, "Yes, you should have!" . The cracks in the formula are beginning to show. A bit disappointing. But I will read the whole series.
Although I have grown to like and admire Markham and his team, and certainly enjoyed the overall detection and police-work in this book, there seemed a number of characters whose roles began to confuse me. That aside, the main plot was engaging and very sinister, with periods of high tension awaiting the body-count to rise.
DI Gil Markham and his loyal team of detectives are called to the local art gallery when one of the gallery staff is found dead in the cold storage room. Then another murder takes place. Highly entertaining reading.
I have read all the current books by Catherine Moloney’s Detective Markham Mystery Stories. I love the stories so far and the characters are very well written and plots nail biting. I hope there will be more books like this one to follow.
This latest in the series of Catherine Moloney's 'Crime in the - ' detective thrillers is every bit as fine, and compelling, as each of its predecessors. It, and the previous five books, can be heartily recommended.
