This is the first book in a 46 book series. George Gently is a member of Scotland Yard's CID team. He is on vacation when he becomes involved in a murder investigation. He happens to have seen the prime suspect in a murder the afternoon of the murder and goes to the local police station where he knows the Superintendent.

The local police force are certain they know the murderer and that it is just a matter of time until they pick him up. Gently isn't so sure and sets out to investigate the murder.

Some of the twists in story just seem to appear so they come as a surprise to the reader. I figured out who the murderer was well before he was revealed. That didn't ruin the book for me as I enjoyed seeing how Gently got the necessary proof.

I will read another of the series.
