A grisly murder in suburbia and the evidence mounts quite quickly against an innocent man. The story plays out with additional lines of enquiry leading to more and more suspects and motives. It baffled me by the time I was half way through the book and I like to be baffled - what's the point of a mystery that's predictable? Gradually things became clearer with the author pacing the story well and although by the end I had half guessed the answer I felt the time spent in reading was rewarded and...more

Any one who watches the British mysteries on American PBS will enjoy this series. It gets a bit wordy towards the last few chapters. And, you can figure out the bad guys but it is worth the time to read. Trevor Joseph and his team investigates the murder of a suburban house wife, who no one liked and a nosy neighbor who records the activity on the street.

Took a bit for me to get into but once it did I couldn't put it down. Its been a long time since I've read a book and not been able to figure out who done it, so that was awesome as well. The British words added some fun as well learning gaol is jail in British, kinda cool and refreshing from some american slang. I usually get my books free on amazon and this was a great one to come across.
A other good read from Katherine John. Trevor Joseph is faced with an axe murder of one of the occupants of cul-de-sac in the town. In spite of his best efforts he keeps drawing a blank and finds his life on the line before the murderer is arrested.

I liked this book, but it took me a while to get into it...the characters are quite strong, but I found the story didn't really get going until about half way through. Once the pace picked up a bit, I enjoyed it!

A great read, I couldn't put it down. On par with Elizabeth George's Lynley series.

It was not too complicated with good development of the characters. It would just so happen that the neighbour being complained about the most - a thorn in the side of her other neighbours - ends up dead. Not only that but everyone seems to have a reason to kill her. Our Sergeant Peter Collins in charge of the case has a particularly trying job to do because it was his own cousin, who incidentally lived next door who complained most bitterly, is now in the frame, with all the evidence pointing d...more

Great read!

I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and very interesting. I thought I had it figured out but it kept me guessing right up to the end and I was still only half right. I would read other books written by this author. Easy read and very entertaining.
One of those books you just cant put down,it had me on the edge of my seat.
