A mystery with a twist.

The people are brought to life, all individual yet meshed together. Beautifully narrated.
Especially liked the part with Reverend Applegate and the church council with the candle burning. smile.
to have 2 murders and a mystery with a twist of a third murder at the end was good.
recommend put your feet up with a cuppa and enjoy this book.

Plausible and engaging story

This is one of Anne Granger's more plausible stories, at least some of it, and one of her better books. The story was well-constructed and the characters easy to remember, which is important in an audio book. Meredith Mitchell, Inspector Markby's companion, plays a bigger part in the detection of the crimes in this book than in some others. It's a long recording, but it never flags and is excellently read by Judith Boyd.
