These garden mysteries are getting better all of the time! I like the base mystery in this novel - man falling off cliff in arduous search for rare seeds in remote China. The actual story location is England and surrounding areas, which is fine with me, but the flavor of exotic background is interesting. Main character, Kingston, is challenged trying to assess policeman, Sheffield's acceptance of his deductions (never sure how suggestions are being taken) and also has an interesting relationship with friend, Andrew (who could be just a bit more outrageous). Prologue and early chapters set a thrilling beginning..
I hope to visit Quarryhill Botanical Garden sometime soon. Great book for garden/plant lover and English mystery reader.
