Very amusing book

This book is too funny to be a run of the mill mystery. It's a good read and interesting enough to keep the reader wanting more.

Great Read

Sebastian (Seb) Clifford, a former DI in London, and DC Lucinda Bird (Birdie) are great characters with a whole lot of chemistry. The story and plot were good enough to keep me turning pages. If you like English police procedurals, mysteries or crime novels, you'll like this book.

Great Quick Read

It was great meeting up with Seb and Birdie again to continue building a bond with these dynamic characters. Sally builds a plot that hooks me from beginning to end of each of her novels.

Where did the child come from?

Sometimes reading a really good mystery that doesn't involve murder is just what is needed! Rigby does well weaving a tale of an abandoned child - using her newest characters, Clifford and Birdie, to resolve the story and help the child find peace. The crazy, easy bantering that DC Bird has with her partners on and off the police force adds a bit of humor and personality to all the characters. Her tenacity to dig deeper into the crime - despite being warned off - shows her passion for resolution. I really like these new characters!
