So Hillary gets shot, solves two crimes and almost has a truce with frank. The last few books have had similar epilogues ... A common theme or thread ... but it seems that this little twist may have come to an end. I'm so curious to see how Faith finishes her next book that I am just going to keep reading on ... She is the master of the cliff hanger! Love it!
Excellent structure of the story by being engrossing, entertaining and somewhat bewildering as there are many twists and turns that make guessing the ending almost impossible. Faith writes with such a colorful phrase that I am forming in my mind the beautiful Oxford locations that she describes. The characters are structured realistically in a way that makes them believable.
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.
I liked the subtle way the author manages to provide all the details of each character so that the reader gradually gets to know each person in much the same way it would happen in real life. The stories are well presented and keeps the reader in the gang so to speak. It is a very real and pleasant way to be part of the story. The same comments apply to each book from this author.
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.
