I love this series -- it is a great calming book although about crime.It's hard to explain,but I want to go to Wales every time I read one of these books.
#8 in the Evan Evans cozy police procedural series set in the fictional Welsh town of Llanfair. Evan is now a plainclothes Detective Constable just out of training, and his first case involves a missing little girl. The child and her mother are visitors to the area and it is feared that she was abducted by her Russian father, who has been estranged from the mother. But when Evan is digging up the sewer and water lines at the country cottage he's bought and finds the skeleton of a child, speculation runs rampant about the possibility of a serial killer. When it's determined that the skeleton is probably that of a young girl that Evan played with as a child 25 years previous, and that her whole family is in the area for a relative's 80th birthday party, Evan remembers that his old playmate looked very much like the missing girl and wonders if one of the family members is the culprit in both cases. Love this series--I figured out the mystery way ahead on this one, but enjoy the setting and the characters so much that it doesn't really matter. Excellent as always, in fact, even better...this is a very strong entry in the series.
Another good entry in this series.
