What led to: Death by the Sea by Vera Morris

#DeathbytheSea #NetGalley

This title is the sixth in a series. I have not read the others but think that I will so that I get more of the characters’ backstories. That said, this can be read as a standalone.

It is clear from reading this title that the Anglian Detective Team has worked together over time. Their group consists of an ex police officer (Frank) and an ex teacher (Laurel), along with two others.

One thread of the plot centers on a case of a judge who many have been wronged or who may have unsavory connections. When he fails to show up for a meeting with the team, the course of the novel is set. A visit is made to the judge’s home where an unsavory discovery is made.

The team is also working on a case that involves missing plants. Are the two investigations separate or will they come together?

This police procedural is set in the 1970s. It offers a good read with interesting characters and a terrific setting.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Headline for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
