Narrative flaws increase with each novel. Contains spoilers.Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 23 March 2021
I’ve read all 5 books now. They are quite easy to read but there are flaws which become more pronounced as the series moves on. With all crime / mystery books of this type you have to suspend disbelief to some extent, which is possible as long as the internal logic holds the narrative together. It does not in the 3rd book - the likelihood of a detective being taken off one case and being sent from one end of the country to the other to work on a second is a bit far fetched, especially when they are interconnected and he solves both. As for the 4th book – it was set in a version of the UK that makes no sense at all. The idea that the locals are so cut off from the world that they have their own ways unchanged for hundreds of years is something that you might just have got away with in 1920, but not in 2020. The choice of Catholicism as the religion of the village is highly unlikely. There are no churches in England which have an unbroken Catholic continuity from medieval times. During the reformation all the church ‘real estate’ moved from the Catholic church to the Church of England. Catholicism was actually illegal for 200 years or so. No matter how cut off this village in Somerset might be it would not have a medieval Catholic church, nor a totally Catholic population. And where a Catholic bishop might have an episcopal palace in Somerset I do not know. Other people have mentioned the other issue of the ‘stock Arab terrorist’. The problem with the 5th novel was, the ultimate sin in a crime novel, that it was clear from half way through who the killer was. The author needs to do their research and tighten up the narrative logic.

Easy reading!Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 9 January 2021
I didn't enjoy the first book in the series except to learn about the characters. Once into the second book I was almost hooked. It was when Carlene was introduced that the storyline became believable. She, Bugsy and Corrie made the final two books really enjoyable. It was a well worth reading series. I'm about to get the next in the series now to continue my easy reading experience!

So far not impressedReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 6 March 2021
I've only read book 1 & only going to read the next if I've nothing else to read. I'm used to gripping, fast moving detective novels of which this isn't. It's more like amateur sleuths Rosemary & Thyme!! Far too much Greek mythology for me. Skipped most of the last chapter out of boredom. The story, as such, was heavily padded out with waffle to fill the required written words needed & could have been told in half the pages. Glad it only cost £1 but so far not value for money. Maybe book 2 might be better!

Great reads very enjoyable.Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 12 August 2021
Purchased as a box set with 5 stories thought I had made a mistake when I started to read book 1, Kasastrophos,,,,,rearly, very near gave up then, but I read on and I thought it was a bit mundane. Book 2 had me totally hooked, as with books 3,4,5 loved them, my only criticism was I didnt think there was enough of following on for the characters (what happened to DC Pinkney?), But having said that I did enjoy the way that at the end of the stories it explained what happened to most of t he characters, I often think that after a good story, where did they go what did they do. Very enjoyable, and I have just purchased the next two.

Gripping Fiction - Edge of your seat stuff!Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 26 March 2021
This set of books by Frances Lloyd is some of the best fiction I have read for a long, long time. From page one through to the very last line of the fifth book is absolutely un-put-downable! Original plot lines, characters that become better known than your family - you know you have made life long friends from these clever, but everyday people who probably live just down the road, but what exciting adventures they have. If you love your Detective Murder Mysteries, then don't miss this range. Brilliant writing, wonderful plots and exciting locations, you won't want to miss this experience!
