Excessive legal issues and no murder til last half of birth

I finished this but found the legal issues too technical and excessive. I like the character development but the main character was pitiful and depressing.

Will not read any more in this series. Liked other series much better!

Another great story

Another great story by Roy Lewis with lots of twists and turns and plenty of intrigue. I must admit that I did guess part way through the book that Amos was not the father. This however made the reading more enjoyable in my quest to see if I was right.

Family feuds

Very dangerous things. A young farmer is refused his right to purchase a farm his mother had given him option to . Exposing the frauds is a delicate matter that Eric Ward finds himself involved in . Terrific story.

An interesting tale

This story rambled along quite strongly with enough to keep you interested for the journey. The conclusion was somewhat disappointing with no dalliance with Anne, but it will surely follow in the next tale.

Not one of his best.

Pretty humdrum story with quite obvious plot lines. The big family secret was easily discernable. Nothing original except the references to the suffering caused by glaucoma, which had nothing to do with the murder.

Having read all of the Eric Ward tales. I a! Somewhat

,saddened,and unsure where to proceed. These have been thoroughly enjoyable and we'll written
with wonderful attention to detail. Almost enough to make you live through the various traumas.

The farming murder

I started off by really enjoying the story, but then it lost me, I think if you were trained as a lawyer or barrister then this is a book for you.

The endings are rather anticlimactic with this author

I liked this complicated tale well enough but Ward's diffidence wears. Granted he's got a health issue, but it's odd that he's so insecure when he's good at his job.
