Review: A Place of Safety: A Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby Myster (#6)

The premise: Charlie Leathers is found murdered in the small, close-knit village of Ferne Basset. While his murder does not upset many – he was not generally well-liked – it is the catalyst that leads to the unraveling of well-kept secrets leading to severe consequences.

I read this not realizing it was the sixth in the series, but it didn’t matter because this is a supremely well written mystery with rich characters, unexpected turns, humour, and Chief Inspector Barnaby, who gives Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot a run for their money! This is absolutely magnificent – rivals Agatha Christie, which is saying a lot! The television series, ‘Midsomer Murders’, is based on the Chief Inspector Barnaby series by Caroline Graham.

It is so very British – loved it! Will be looking for others by the author.
