This is the first book of Stuart Pawson's I've read. It features one DI Charlie Priest a policeman with a sense of humour, jokes and quips pepper this entertaining who-dun-it However there is serious crime novel here as well as the humour, which makes the characters all the more believeable. I'll be looking out for more of Stuart Pawson's books.

I really enjoyed reading this book it only took me so long as I have been ill.
DI Charlie Priest has to investigate a murder in which the victim has been hit over the head with a flowerpot. Charlie knows this as the flowerpot is next to the body, however all is not as it seems and is it in fact a murder at ll?. A very enjoyable story.
This author was recommended to me by the owner of Callan's Bookstore in Stratford, Ontario, Canada this past summer. I brought it along for something to read while we enjoyed a month in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The paperback's cover reads, "Perfect for a long winter afternoon with the rain beating down on the windows" (Independent on Sunday). Unfortunately it was in the 70s and sunny although it is February and the surf pounding might substitute for rain. Didn't make a bit of difference. I loved th ...more
Pawson does his best not to time date his books. Sadly including 'Filofax' and 'Princess Diana' put it firmly in the 1990's. To be fair that does not really detract from the plot and I am only being picky.
This is my fourth Pawson and won't be my last.
It was ok. A bit pedestrian and lots of things happening, which, really had nothing to do with the plot. Probably read another of Stuart Pawsons books, but probably no more after that if written in the same style
Another good read by Stuart Pawson. A bit of humour interspersed throughout, some of the sayings make you stop and think about what he's trying to convey, but well written.

My first Stuart Pawson/Charlie Priest novel and I hope that it wont be the last. I soon picked up on the charactors and enjoyed the pace and style of the story.

Charlie Priest is one of my favourite fictional detectives. Pawson has a strong voice, a neat mystery and a wry touch I appreciate.
Another entertaining read from this author.
Most enjoyable like his other books...

Stuart Pawson lives in Fairburn, Yorkshire, with his wife, Doreen, and can often be found tramping across the moors that form a backdrop to his stories.

After a career as a mining electrical engineer he worked part-time for the probation service for five years, mediating between offenders and their victims. This gave him a good insight into the criminal justice system, and it was during this perio
