1963. It was the year of the Profumo Scandal, the Great Train Robbery, the Kennedy Assassination…and the Mickledore Hall Murder. The guests at the hall that weekend had included a Tory minister, a CIA officer specializing in dirty tricks, a British diplomat with royal connections, and Cissy Kohler, a young American nanny who had come to England for love. And love kept her in England for nearly 30 years. In jail. For murder.

Although I must say that this is your typical English cozy mystery, I mean that in the very best sense ¿ it¿s fun to read, moves along in a brisk fashion, and presents an intriguing puzzle (and of course, it all begins at an English manor in the country). I thoroughly enjoyed this light offering feature Detectives Dalziel and Pascoe and will probably seek out more in the series.
Have read all his books and really like the characters and plots. All great reads.
