I generally like Ann Cleeves’ books, but I wasn’t familiar with this early series. The book was ok, though rather depressing. Yet another excellent mystery story by Ann Cleeves in the Palmer-Jones series. I didn’t guess the killer, so it worked n that level. She constructed the plot well using well thought out characters and kept the reader guessing to the end. She didn’t overdo the ornithological side of the book and maintained the readers’ interest throughout.

Ruth did not like going to the pub much. She had the feeling that most of the regulars resented their presence party. They always sat in the public bar. Rosie and Jane saw that as a sort of political statement. They said only yuppies went in the lounge, though Ruth thought that in Markham Law yuppies were pretty thin on the ground.

The description of the plot in the Editorial section doesn't really do the plot justice. Jimmy Morrissey was recovering from depression following an accident in which he had been involved where his daughter by a previous marriage had died. He had left his position at Green Scene, a magazine about environmental issues that he had helped found. He was living with his current wife and their blended family at an old mill where they ran courses for artists and students. His current wife, Meg, made a career out of being England's Perfect Mother. Not far away his previous wife lived with her current husband who was an executive at a textile mill.

When the coroner comes back with a decision that Morrissey had killed himself while the balance of his mind was disturbed Meg, the grieving widow, asks George and Molly Palmer-Jones to investigate because she does not believe that he did kill himself. George, a former employee of the home office and a dedicated bird watcher, was a friend of the dead man. Molly, his wife and associate in their private inquiry business was a social worker. As they did deeper into the situation at the Mill it becomes clear that all is not as it was portrayed. For one thing Morrissey who was writing an autobiography had an appointment with his publisher to turn the finished manuscript in. For another the manuscript and all of his notes had disappeared at the time of his death.

Ann Cleeves has a nice satirical turn in describing characters and circumstances, even George and Molly. While it might be possible to read this book as a cozy it's a cozy with a bite. While George and Molly may be retired it is certainly not Geezer Lit. The plot has a lot of twists and turns as they investigate the facts surrounding Morrissey's death.

Well worth a read.

Preceded by Another Man's Poison and followed by High Island Blues. High Island Blues is the last in the series as of writing.
