by Dorothy Simpson
In the 1980s Dorothy Simpson wrote a number of mystery/police procedural novels featuring Luke Thanet. Some have recently been reissued. This is welcome news to the author’s fans and a chance for new readers to enjoy stories that feature a likeable and recurring cast of characters.
Thanet is a good man who cares deeply about his cases, his family and his colleagues, especially Mike with whom he works closely. In this entry, Thanet is looking forward to a break but it is not meant to be. Instead he becomes involved in the case of Charity Pritchard and the religious grooup within which she has been raised. What happened to her? Who is responsible?
If you like traditional mysteries and don’t mind that the titles might seem a tiny bit dated (but so are all those glorious 30s mysteries), consider giving this book and series a try.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read. All opinions are my own.
