“What is it about Yembury?” wonders Joyce Agate, now a detective sergeant, as she tries to solve yet another murder in Yembury. In this third excursion into the apparently cosy Dorset village of Yembury, Geoffrey Lloyd takes us deeper into the geteel and not so genteel lives of Yembury’s inhabitants, and their apparent propensity for leaving dead bodies around the village. Some characters from the two previous novels reappear and some new residents make their introductions. Again the mixture of new and old, rich and poor, country and city, aggressive and passive, combine to conjure new tensions in Yembury. The author continues to sprinkle moments of black humour and social comment in this entertaining murder mystery – perhaps another insoluble crime.
