    "Great Premise for a Mystery"

    Josie, the narrator, is the widow of a gangster who has taken every catering class available to the mature student and then bought a pub in a village in Somerset. When she becomes wary of the beef which has been supplied to her by a local farmer, she begins a bit of research on mad cow, and the legislation precipitated by the development of the illness in humans. The copper who, 20 years ago, put together the case that sent her Tony to prison shows up and turns out to have left the force and become a Food Safety inspector. The two of them form a wary alliance which gets stronger as the villagers begin working together to drive them both out of the area.
    The characters are believable, the situations are fraught but not violent, and the mystery is pleasantly novel.
    The reader is fabulous, and she gives a distinct voice and, someetimes, accent to each of the characters.
    I've just happily bought the second book about these characters.
