Publisher's Summary

For recently engaged DI Joanna Piercy, a murder is the last thing she wants to deal with. Especially one with as dark a back story as that relating to calculating landowner and farmer Jakob Grimshaw; a man who managed to make enemies of all his neighbours and what little family he still had. One thing is certain; Joanna has a tough job ahead of her...

Some good story lines, needs a good editing

Like two other Joanna Piercy series novels I've read, there are lots of great human interest sub-plots and myriad plot twists in this book, but it needed a good editor to weed out some of the plodding of it all.

Methodical DI Joanna, I still think you have potential--this is one of the early ones in the series, so perhaps Masters grows into it and gets a stronger editor later in the series.

Like Joanna, I plod on--will follow up with one or two later novels in the series to find out.
