Good murder mystery with an interesting twist.

This is the third DI Greene novel that I have read. (I started with book #8 -- MURDER IN THE MEADOW a gripping crime mystery full of twists. This spoils some of the interesting sub-plots that Martin is developing across this series of books.)

This book was well-written with good characterisation and good pacing with the narrative.And the author does not cheat the reader by hiding clues as the mystery unfolds.

Good review on this author so I am giving her a whirl. Quite enjoyed this one. Nice writing, good characters, interesting plot with a nice twist at the end. Now reading Oxford Canal to see if the joy lasts before downloading several more of Martin's books. Nice read

I felt it would be unfair to enjoy Faith Martin's 4 'Murder' series books I have just finished and not said a big ' thank you' for 4 such enjoyable reads. The plots keep your attention and are woven with such enjoyable characters I found myself not wanting to put the books down and go to sleep. Would recommend to those who enjoy a good read before bedtime.

Real people in real situations. I can almost see the clothes they're wearing, and the places they inhabit. No overt violence or sex, just hints.

Easy to read and keeps you turning the pages. Faith Martin has created a great led character in Hilary Greene no nonsense but vulnerable read the first 2 books in 3 days and. Ant wait for more

This second book of the series was even better than the excellent first book. Great reading for lovers of thrilling, but not grizzly, murder mysteries.

Good read, fast paced. Love Faith Martin's portrayal of the characters. Looking forward to Murder of the Bride the next in the series.

Well formed cast of characters who you can avidly imagine. Set in the scenic city of Oxford with its towering spires & the aromatic stench of the canal.
