Booklist Reviews 2008 February #1

Despite a boss who's a thorn in his side and a fiancée who won't commit to a wedding date, Chief Inspector Percy Peach enjoys life, especially his job as head of the Brunton, Lancashire, CID.  His latest case involves the brutal murder of wealthy local businessman Geoffrey Aspin, who has unexpectedly announced to his family that, at the age of 60, he plans to marry again. His announcement throws his two daughters, their husbands, and his business partner into pandemonium, given the likelihood that their inheritance will be affected. Peach realizes these are strong motives for murder, but long experience ensures he won't rule anything or anyone out until he has made a full investigation. Although the identity of the killer won't be a surprise to seasoned mystery fans, Gregson's gift for wry humor, solid plotting, and wise insights into the foibles of human behavior make this latest installment in the Percy Peach series a real treat.
