Realising the murders aren’t linked, Marsden summons the help of the...more
I am absolutely loving this series. It’s a bit of a cross between a cosy mystery/crime thriller. The cosiness comes in the form of three wonderful characters, Kat, Mouse (Beth) and Doris. Although after reading this one, I am in awe of Doris as for someone approaching seventy, she shows she is not to be messed with!
It’s like catching up with old friends picking up a book in this series. I love the village feel that we ...more
With Connection beginning to search for a son a father wants to find, and police trying to solve the murders of two teenage girls, there's a lot going on in this story. Waller keeps all the threads untangled, and the reader wondering who has done what.
A series really has to hold my interest and keep me entertained. This series has being doing both ...more
Doris (Nan) has now moved out of Kat’s into a cottage of her own, but they are still together most of the time and their Private Detective agency, Connection is thriving.
The story revolves around two missing girls, a man who had crashed and died with a shovel, mud and a single women’s boot in his car……two bodies ...more
Kat, Mouse and Doris are back in town and I absolutely enjoyed my time with them.
The book starts right off the bat with the hiding of a murder. With the first sentence of the chapter, I was drawn into the mystery of the story. The way the book starts gave me the feel that I’m in the right place with the right read.
Like the previous two installments of the Kat and Mouse series, Murder Unearthed, too, has the countryside, Agatha Christie feel I always love. Two girls dead on the same nigh ...more
I haven’t read any of the other mysteries in this series so it took me awhile to sort out who the “usual” characters were. And I didn’t know anything about their occupations either so the first part of the book had me sighing “and who is THIS now?”
The murders of two young women shakes a small town in the Peak District, just outside of Manchester. One of the murders is solved less than a quarter of the way into the book, but the other isn’t until t ...more
A driver runs off the road and dies, and DI Tess Marsden suspects that the crash victim may have buried a body of a woman, due to mud on his clothing, on a shovel in the car, and the discovery of one female shoe. Two murder victims are found in seperate locations but are they connected by the same killer?
Tess turns to Connection, the pri ...more
I love the chemistry between Kat, Mouse and Doris, and just when I thought this book series couldn't get any better, book 3 hits my kindle and I love it.
Murder Unearthed is full of twists and turns and there was no way I knew who the culprit was and I loved it.
If you like good 'whodunit' stories, then you need the books by Anita Waller.
This is ...more
From the beginning of this book to the end I was totally hooked. I feel like I have become part of the team, even trying to solve the crime before they do. As an 80 year old it’s much more fun than pressing buttons on the iPad. More books please.
This book centres around two missing girls from the same area and we see the return of DI Tessa Marsden who is in charge of the investigations. ...more
D I Tessa Marsden has become another strong character in the books and someone who the friends have come to respect, support and enjoy the company of and this works both ways.
There are two investigations – the two murders under investigation by D I Marsden and that of a man, Ewan Barker, who asks the Agency to find his long lost son ...more
This is the third in the Kat, Mouse & Doris "Murder" series and is just as enjoyable as the previous two.
This series is set in breathtakingly beautiful Derbyshire and is a delightful comfortable read.
DI Tessa Marsden and her team investigate and solve the murder of two Castleton girls, unlinked,
two separate deaths, whilst Connection, based in the beautiful plague village of Eyam continue their business as Private In ...more

Plenty of questions to be answered in this latest book in the series. I love how there ar ...more
I've read all three with pleasure. Each was pretty compulsive as you discovered more about the key characters and became embroiled in the various storylines.
This third book kept me glued. I enjoy the interweaving of storylines
The geographical background is powerful and recognisable.
The development of the three main characters continues to be amusing, warm and credible.
I must admit to recognising the murderer from the beginning but that was possibly luck and in no way spoilt ...more
Once again, in the first few pages, this very talented author transported me to a rain soaked Yorkshire in the dead of night and had me well and truly hooked by the end of the first chapter.
There’s just something about these books that draws the reader in, you feel comfortable with the characters, like they are family, and then the plot takes hold so you become lost in their world.
The author has woven a very clever tale of human frailty and the intricacies o ...more
Couldn't read this trilogy fast enough. As soon as I finished the first i started straight on to the next. Looking forward to the last Kat, Mouse and Doris escapades. Can't wait.
Will also be on the look out for more Anita Walker books to keep me entertained, great writing.
The series gets better the more you read of the series and it helps when you know of the areas in the Peak District that are mentioned in the books.
I am married (almost 50 years to Dave) with three children and seven grandchildren.
