Review quote

DCI Buchanan is on administration leave and is staying at Castlewood Country Club. He'd seen his wife and daughter off to France on the ferry and now planned to spend the week relaxing, reading, horse riding, and sipping his favourite single malt; and come hell or high water nothing was going to get in the way of that. But he hadn't reckoned on what mayhem the whirlwind called Cynthia Mountjoy was about to cause.

An enjoyable romp through the East Sussex countryside as Detective Inspector Jack Buchanan takes a well earned break at his favourite country club, however skullduggery is afoot, but a policeman is always a policeman and Jack keeping his identity quiet is in the thick of it. A well researched book that has its denouement with Jack on a horse taking part in a cross country race.
Didn't expect that. A satisfying read.

Enjoyed the ease and flow of the story line. The characters were very interesting and instantly understood their motivation. Love all things to do with horses, so I was a very captive audience. Enjoyed when the author involved conversations of bystanders, who were not part of the story, but it added greatly to how being in that situation would feel. Love Buchanan he seems so familiar, he is very resourceful, patient and has lots of common sense, just like you would hope a police officer would be. Looking forward to the next Buchanan book, The Missing Heiress and after that the Jockey's Wife.
