Faith Martin is a prolific author of mysteries; she has written more than thirty books. This title is part of the DI Hillary Greene series. It was first published in 2006 and is the third in a series of about twenty books. It was originally published as Narrow is the Way. If a reader enjoys this title, they can follow DI Greene on many cases.
DI Greene is a woman in her 40s. She is an experienced detective who works in Oxfordshire and lives on the water. This time she has a case with many suspects and motives. The murder victim was dressed as a bride. What was her story?
There is a lot to detect here. As an added intrigue there may be a connection to a significant person from Hillary’s past.
I enjoyed spending time with Hillary. She opens the book in such a human way by being irritated by a bad driver. She feels like a real person all the way through.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
