My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another brilliant addition to the Peridale Cafe mysteries from Agatha Frost, a series which is rapidly becoming one of my favourites.
There is a real lightness of style to these stories, even with the murderous themes running through them, the humour and Britishness stands out.
Julia is a delightful addition to the female “detective” cannon and she’s beginning to rank right up there with Christie’s Tuppence Beresford for me.
In this one things become even more personal for Julia when her beloved Barker’s life is in danger and, as in all the previous books, there’s a neat twist which is never obvious which gives Julia the insight she needs to discover the truth.
