    Enjoyable and engrossing

    This police procedural set near Gloucester in the 1950s is well written and well plotted. Taylor creates a realistic small town in Lydmouth, peopled with several interesting and believable minor characters, while the interactions between the main characters - Inspector Thornhill, his bosses, his underlings, his wife and Jill - are so intriguing that I bought the whole series and enjoyed all 8 books immensely.

    The scene is set for the Lydmouth series

    Once it had got going this was a fast moving story with several strands. At first I was worried that the book, being an early work, would not live up to the more recently written Andrew Taylor books I have been reading, but as I read on i was gripped by the story, as with his other books. The book does two things, it tells a central story of incest and its fall out and it brings together the police inspector and seasoned journalist who will be the lead characters in the other books in the Lydmouth series. Taylor is a master in scene setting and character depiction, seeming to leave no detail out, but in an economy of words. I look forward to reading more books from this series.
