    • Abstract:
      Summary: "On a hot summer morning, Miles Law cycles into the village of Millington in the Vale of York, on his way to a few hours' work as an under gardener at The Grange. But when he arrives, he finds his employer slumped in an armchair in the drawing room, a bullet wound on his forehead. Miles' employer was a secretive and reclusive man who kept his employees and neighbours at a distance. Who was Anthony Garrett, and who are the three young, identical-looking blonde women who called at the house a few days before his body was discovered? Detective Chief Inspector George Hennessey and Detective Superintendent Somerled Yellich are soon on the hunt for a ruthless and efficient killer."--Publisher's description.

Booklist Reviews 2019 April #1

British coppers Hennessey and Yellich return in another twisty whodunit. Gardener Miles Law works for Anthony Garrett, a wealthy recluse. Law's routine is the same every day: arrive at Garrett's secluded mansion, give his special knock to inform Garrett he's on site, and get on with his work without ever speaking to his employer. So when Law sees a kitchen window standing open, it's so unusual for the extremely security-conscious Garrett that Miles decides to investigate. His grisly find means a new case for Hennessy and Yellich. Garrett seems to have no family, friends, or associates. So who killed him, and, more important, why? An observant neighbor gives the coppers their first good lead, and, from there on, it's a matter of painstakingly unravelling the evidence. Although the case is finally cracked, the conclusion is as frustrating as it is bizarre. Turnbull's slightly eccentric writing style, the likably human Hennessy and Yellich, a clever plot, and an authentic-seeming glimpse into the intricacies of modern policing make this a good pick for fans of the British police procedural.

PW Reviews 2019 January #4

A simple, straightforward plot propels Turnbull's curiously antiquated 25th mystery featuring Det. Chief Insp. George Hennessey and Det. Sgt. Somerled Yellich of the Micklegate Bar Police Station in York, England (after 2016's A Dreadful Past). The two are called to the isolated country home of Anthony Garrett, near the little town of Millington-in-the-Vale. Garrett was found in the drawing room, shot neatly between the eyes. The only unusual occurrence in the deceased's life was the arrival at his door, a few days before his death, of three almost identical blonde women. The time period is confusing. Were it not for references to CCTV cameras and DNA, the reader could be forgiven for placing it several decades ago. With no other investigations to occupy the detectives, the narrative is padded with digressions, from the origin of the word gob to musing on the names of prisons ("Leavenworth Prison in the USA... I always think sounds like it ought to be an English country house"). This one's strictly for series fans. (Apr.)
