    Another satisfying entry in the series Meredith Mitchell s friend Sally Caswell and her husband Liam have recently moved from London to Oxfordshire Liam finds it difficult to adapt to rural life, is also a target for animal rights activists over his use of live animals in his research, and especially clashes with old Bodicote next door, who keeps goats Tensions are running high when a package arrives at the Caswell s house, which is in actuality a mail bomb which explodes and injures Sally, t Another satisfying entry in the series Meredith Mitchell s friend Sally Caswell and her husband Liam have recently moved from London to Oxfordshire Liam finds it difficult to adapt to rural life, is also a target for animal rights activists over his use of live animals in his research, and especially clashes with old Bodicote next door, who keeps goats Tensions are running high when a package arrives at the Caswell s house, which is in actuality a mail bomb which explodes and injures Sally, though it s thought Liam was the target And then Bodicote is found lying dead in the goatyard.There s several lines of inquiry for Chief Inspector Markby to follow, but things don t seem to progress until someone tries to poison Sally and it becomes clear she is the one under attack, not Liam As always, Granger paints a terrific picture of the locals involved, as well as Markby and Mitchell s ongoing relationship These books are outstanding examples of the classic English village mystery

    Endlich mal ein Fall, bei dem Meredith sich nicht st ndig in Lebensgefahr begibt Auch erscheint mir die Stimmung zwischen den beiden lockerer und Bodicote und Jasper fand ich sehr am sant.

    Originally published on my blog here in October 1998.A Touch of Mortality is another of Ann Granger s well written Mitchell and Markby crime novels, in much the same vein as the others in the series It s basically a case of like one, like all By this point in the series, the relationship between the protagonists is well established, so there is less about that here andto establish the puzzle.Like the others, A Touch of Mortality is a village murder, a successor to those Miss Marple myste Originally published on my blog here in October 1998.A Touch of Mortality is another of Ann Granger s well written Mitchell and Markby crime novels, in much the same vein as the others in the series It s basically a case of like one, like all By this point in the series, the relationship between the protagonists is well established, so there is less about that here andto establish the puzzle.Like the others, A Touch of Mortality is a village murder, a successor to those Miss Marple mysteries which were actually set in St Mary Mead The village setting here is not the gentry and vicars world of Agatha Christie s novels, but a nineties village with modern problems of rural poverty, overspill housing estates and resented outsiders with money.The central characters in this novel are Sally Caswell and her husband Liam They have moved from London into the country for peace and quiet for Liam to write a book She works in an auction house in a local town and he is a biologist at an institute of Oxford University Because of now finished experiments on animals, Liam starts receiving threatening letters from animal rights activists, but it is not until Sally opens a parcel that turns out to be a letter bomb that they involve the police in the person of Alan Markby.Other than an over reliance on coincidence common in crime novel series it s incredibly dangerous to be a friend of Meredith Mitchell there is nothing to really criticise in this well written novel

    another winner how does she keep it up i thought this was one of the best so far, and it seems like i say that with each successive book.

    Readable but run of the mill mystery novel lifted by a vein of dry humour running through it.
