Has anyone here read these? I saw the most current one at the bookstore today and it looked interesting so of course, I had to run home and check out PBS and SYKM to see what people think. If you've read them, did you love them? Hate them?

Not yet, but I do have the first on my TBR and it's slowly making the way to the top. They do look interesting!

This series is one of my "keepers" -- the books I don't swap.  I'm reaching the point where I'm of "a certain age," and what drew me to the series in the first place was that the two main characters are even older than I am but still do an excellent job of solving complex mysteries.  I also like the fact that they have been assigned these types of cases because they "think outside the box."  Highly recommended!

I've read the first two in the series and have the third and fourth on my TBR pile--I LOVED these books!  British police procedurals but with some interesting twists--highly recommended.
