The author took the time to develop the characters before getting into the crime/mystery. The plot moved along more slowly than plots today, but had more substance. By reading the book, I got a feel for what post-WWII in England was like. And I learned some new terms (such as "collier"). Am looking forward to the rest of the books in the series.

This first book in the Sergeant Felse series is so different than Ellis Peter's Cadfael series that at times I thought it must be by a different author. At times it seemed to bog down into what I consider to be the least attractive characteristic of English mystery authors - too much discussion of matters not pertaining to the plot.

Still, other parts were fascinating - especially the last few chapters - and I plan to continue reading in this series. At least, the two other books that I have on hand, before I make a final decision on whether to read them all.
