Lindenshaw Mysteries


The Best Corpse for the Job (2014)

The Best Corpse for the JobAdam Matthews is on the committee to help select the new headteacher for the school, and nothing is as easy as it should be. First one of the candidates called in sick, and then another candidate is found dead in the children’s kitchen. (Luckily the kids were all outside at the time.)

Inspector Robin Bright went to St Crispin’s and had a miserable time of it, so coming to the school to investigate a murder is causing him a bit of conflict. More conflict comes from the fact that he finds himself attracted to one of the possible suspects.

This book was fine.

The characters were fine. The mystery was fine. The romances was fine (although points for all the boinking being off page).

“I knew that,” Anderson clearly lied.

It just never really pulled me in (which you can tell by the fact it took me five days to read this relatively short novel.

How can you bear to do it?”

“I was going to say you get hardened to it, but I suspect if you did, you’d be no use at it.”

I wouldn’t be opposed to reading another book in this series, but only if I could borrow it from the library.
