About this deal

Anyway, all in all I'm glad I read it, and I might venture to read another at some point, but it wasn't exactly gripping.

Another well paced, fun, captivating mystery for DCI Ryan and our favorite team of detectives to solve. The question is whether the problems with the village's water supply caused his death and did Eco-protestor kill himself because he felt guilty for Fred's death? The death of one of the locals isn’t as clear cut as everyone seems to think and it’s great seeing the team working together as the case gets more twisted and complicated.The brief sections on the Northumbrian landscape were really interesting - it's definitely an area of the world I'd want to find out more about. One of the reasons why I have been invested in this series from the start and will carry on reading it is the two loveable crime fighting duo, Ryan and Frank. Accusations abound in the small, close-knit community, and 'old' religions spar against 'new' while fear runs like wildfire through the streets.

So many phrases that just grated because yes, they do the job, but isn't there a fresher way to say them? Also the paganism at the heart of Holystone seemed intriguing, and I would have liked to have learned more about this.When I settle down with these stories I feel like I’m just catching up with some old friends, they’re absolutely wonderful characters and having learnt so much about them along the journey of these mysteries, I feel like I actually know them. With another death, which could be suicide, the team have got to work hard and quickly to get to the bottom of just what is going on. But things take a sinister turn when the entire village suffers severe poisoning, and one old man turns up dead. After the discovery of the dead man, Ryan and Frank arrive, find the local police in disarray, and they feel the wrath of Ryan's tongue.
