Nicely claustrophobic, a tad iterative, possibly not quite enough event to sustain a full novel, but given the lovely poisonous nutter that is Iles teetering on the verge of everything he is at this point, I don't mind too much. Any Bill James is good Bill James.

There's quite simply not a better British police procedural series out there right now, and I'm going to keep reading these until there aren't any left.

Shelves: series, mystery
A cut below most Harpur and Iles mysteries. The subject was a one off involving protecting a family of grasses. There was no appearance from Panicking Ralph nor Mansel Shale. There was further development of the Iles character, but Harpur's daughters dialogues were not up to their usual superb level.

Read this to keep up with the great Harpur & Iles series, but it confirmed my opinion that the early entries are better.

I'm new to this series but it is great fun! My kind of humor. Just what I need when I want to escape.

well written Ilkes and Harpur novel--the relationship between the two is both uneasy and comfotable, and the books are enjoyable to read
