“Inspector Charlie Peace, Barnard's Yorkshire detective, plays a part in this mystery, but it is his wife, Felicity, who takes center stage. As a local novelist and scholar, Felicity is invited to join the board of Walbrook Manor, a stately home recently gifted to the nation. While Felicity digs into the Manor's past, someone else digs up a body and Charlie begins digging into the mysterious death. Barnard's mysteries reflect England's golden age of Agatha Christie whodunits, but his characters are modern, well-rounded, and sympathetic. A wonderful read.”
