Book Review; Capable of Murder

With “Capable of Murder”, Brian Kavanagh has presented the reader with a classic English village mystery in 188 pages.

The first of the Belinda Lawrence series. which seems now to total four novels,

In this, the introductory story, Belinda inherits a village house from a Great Aunt who has died unexpectedly. While the death appears accidental, Belinda has her doubts. There is an obligatory older recluse and the standard cast of suspicious characters. After additional murders and the necessary bit of immorality, finally the mystery is solved. In between there are break-ins and talk of maps and gardens and Capability Brown.

At an ePub price of around $5 per tale it has an attraction. I shall probably follow the series to the end. I am a sucker for English Village Mysteries set in locations similar to Midsomer.

Lightweight but good fun.

  1. Midsomer!! the most dangerous village in the world. It must be a very tough job for the local estate agent although there’s a very healthy turnover of course.
