first published in 1982, I reread this book in 2006 and thought it had worn well. A light, clever plot, entertaining characters on the English rural coast.

Another solid C.D. Sloan mystery.

LAST RESPECTS is the tenth book in this Inspector DC Sloan and Constable Crosby series. The humor is sharp and at times, a bit savage. The thing I like about Sloan is that he tolerates Crosby and avoids the easy verbal cuts he could inflict on Crosby. Instead, Catherine Aird treats us to Sloan's internal ruminations about Crosby's lack of snap for detecting.

This police procedural offers some iconic secondary characters. The Inspector Leeyes (Sloan's boss) is always inflicting his 'band of merry men' with things he has learned in night classes.

I find myself smiling through the dry wit of Catherine Aird. I've read all of her books at least once.
