Publisher's Summary

A brand new Ryder & Loveday mystery from global best seller Faith Martin.

Summer 1960, Oxford. 

In the glorious sunshine of Oxford, on a day when everyone should be celebrating, tragedy strikes when a university student is found floating in the river, dead.

Probationary WPC Trudy Loveday finds herself paired with coroner Clement Ryder to investigate and it soon becomes clear that this case is not going to be easy.

The witnesses all refuse to give a straight answer, each new lead sends them in a new direction and tales of other missing youngsters add further mystery to the investigation.

One thing is certain though, something doesn’t seem quite right about the university’s most popular student....

Good new series without sex, swearing and violence

I have pre-ordered the next in this series. Looking forward to seeing the direction the two central characters take. The premise is fresh and entertaining.

A good continuation of the series

Trudy and her Coroner mentor make an interesting pair. I liked this book more than I did the first book. I’m so glad I continued with the series.

The narrator, Henrietta Meire, is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Solid Read

Second in series. Enjoyed it. Not too cozy. Plausible ending. Will continue to listen to series. No intertwining love story to distract from the mystery.

A bit old fashioned this one.

Old style tale set in the mid-twentieth century and almost predictable, also spoiled somewhat by sometimes poor pronunciation of common words ie; brusquely, ebullient etc etc.
Overall a bit disappointing and despite understanding the 'times' in which it is set, l am left finding it a bit "daggy" and pondering the age of the author. I didn't really enjoy it.
