A good murder mystery. The pieces all fall into place at the end. Could not put it down.

There is an interesting sub-plot as DI Greene investigates the new Superintendent. The resolution of that sub-plot also resolves what to do with DI Greene's dead husband's ill-gotten gains.

DS Ross is once more indebted to his boss, DI Greene, after extricating him form the new Superintnendent's plot. This comes after DI Greene saves DS Ross' life in MURDER OF THE BRIDE a gripping crime mystery full of twists. That is two times that DS Ross owes DI Greene. He must really hate it.

In Murder in the Village, the fourth in the DI Greene series by Martin, the least likely bystander ends up the murderer. In the meantime corruption within the force and the evil legacy left by Greene's late husband create more trouble for her which makes fascinating reading. Martin portrays all her characters with a deft hand, and her tales are page turners with great dialogue, satirical humour and strong action scenes.

Hilary just cannot believe what is happening in her life. Things seemed so good, then things went dreadfully wrong. She needs all her friends now to help her in this dreadful time.

I feel as if I've know DI Greene and her co- horts all my life! Each new novel brings about such great insight into these characters that they are now so very familiar. Can't wait to start the next one.

I liked it very much. it is well written and a strong story line. my main criticism is that the author does not appear to know the difference between the verbs to lie ie to become prone and to lay ie to put something down somewhere.

I am very much enjoying Faith Martin's books. Murder in the Village maintains her good writing standards and plot. A very good read and highly recommended.

This is book 4 in the Hillary Greene series. The books will work very well as stand alone but a better reading experience will be accomplished by reading them in sequence.

Hillary is a dedicated DI and is still dealing with the fallout from a bad marriage to a bent copper who died leaving Hillary with his mess to clear up. She is living on a Narrow Boat on the Oxford Canal while working her way through the fall out from Ronnie's death. She survived investigation by the IPC and is fighting off a court action resulting from her Ex-husband's illegal dealings.

She is well thought of within the department and leads her team with compassion and guidance. Janine is not impressed with having Hillary as her 'boss' and her relationship with Mel causes problems for everyone. Despite this Hillary still has her back.

This story is very intriguing and moves along pretty quickly with many twists and turns and unexpected events popping up to keep you turning the pages.

I love how this series is progressing. The books have a little humour interwoven in the story and very unique characters that make up Hillary's diverse team. Well written, gripping and a little light humour thrown in what more could a reader ask for? Well worth the 5 stars and looking forward to book 5.
