The Murder Stone

I loved this series of books. Each time I read a new one it's like meeting up with old friends. Whilst the books are about the dark subject of murder there is always the chief inspector to shine a light on the subject. His philosophy on life is something we could all learn from. As a result you always feel up lifted by the end. A very easy thoroughly enjoyable good read. I read this one in one sitting almost! I look forward to the next one.
