As much as I love Agatha Christie, I m not such a fan of cozy mysteries The Yorkshire Murder Mystery series is an exception DCI Oldroyd, like his admired Sherlock Holmes, is a quirky but effective detective and his cases are always tightly plotted and unpredictable This fifth volume is no exception We know who was killed and by whom, what Oldroyd and his crack team lack is a motive Or a suspect, who has disappeared As always, everyone in the little town where the action takes place is hidi As much as I love Agatha Christie, I m not such a fan of cozy mysteries The Yorkshire Murder Mystery series is an exception DCI Oldroyd, like his admired Sherlock Holmes, is a quirky but effective detective and his cases are always tightly plotted and unpredictable This fifth volume is no exception We know who was killed and by whom, what Oldroyd and his crack team lack is a motive Or a suspect, who has disappeared As always, everyone in the little town where the action takes place is hiding something This time, Andy and Steph are both involved in the same investigation, which is great because I love their dynamics and their constant loving competition to impress their boss There are also other cops involved in the case who bring interesting interactions with the usual characters I also loved the explanation to the mystery, I was blindsided completely, even if it made a lot of sense The one thing I didn t like was that the dialogues were a little repetitive at times We kept getting recaps of what had happened and all the theories Unless you re not an attentive reader, they were unnecessary in my opinion Other than that, it s a great, solid mystery I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased Thank you, NetGalleyPublishing UK In A Yorkshire Dales Village Everyone Has A Motive For Murder Except The Killer A Retired Judge Is Shot Dead Outside The Dog And Gun Inn In The Remote Yorkshire Village Of Niddersgill There S A Witness Who Saw Everything, And The Gunman S On The Run The Case Should Be Open And Shut For DCI Jim Oldroyd But The Murderer Had No Motive For Wanting Sandy Fraser Dead And, What S , No Trace Of Him Can Be FoundAs Oldroyd And His Team Cast The Net Wider, They Discover That Fraser Wasn T Without Enemies In Niddersgill As The Wealthy Owner Of A Grouse Moor, He D Clashed With Farmers, Debtors, Hunt Saboteurs And Blackmailers But None Of Them Were At The Scene Of The Murder And When A Local Shopkeeper Is Gunned Down In A Second Senseless Attack, It S Clear That These Killings Are Anything But RandomSurrounded By The Dramatic Beauty Of The Yorkshire Dales, Oldroyd Faces A Race Against Time To Connect The Crimes And Find Who S Behind Them But With All The Evidence Sending Him Down Dead Ends, Can He Get One Step Ahead Before Someone Else Is Killed

During a long career teaching English, I wrote plays for children and occasional ghost stories I have always been fascinated by the paranormal and by mysteries, conspiracy theories and unexplained crimes My love of my native county is deep and the settings of my Yorkshire Murder Mysteries within Yorkshire s varied landscapes are important I have made a study of the sub genre of the Locked Room Mystery during the height of its popularity between 1930 1960 in the stories of writers such as John Dickson Carr, Clayton Rawson and Ellery Queen I was an avid watcher of BBC s Jonathan Creek in its heyday I believe the element of puzzle is essential to crime fiction and my novels contain a double mystery the standard who dunnit but also how dunnit I avoid the dark and gruesome in my writing and I strive to include some humour and elegance in style, a vivid sense of place and a compelling mystery My characters both innocent and guilty are mostly ordinary people.I am a member of a writers group in Otley which has inspired me to write poetry and various forms of short fiction.
