Insp. Roper at one of his best, if you like English police procedurals.

A solid British police procedural from a series about an Inspector named Ian Roper who manages a team of detectives in the fictional town of Rickenham in rural England. Bolitho was a prolific writer from Cornwall who produced two different crime series and a collection of one-offs that emphasized interpersonal relationships as much as murder and mayhem. In some ways her work is reminiscent of the Wycliffe novels penned by her fellow Cornwallian W.J. Burley, but in my opinion Bolitho was a keener observer of human nature so her books have a bit more depth of feeling for both victims and perpetrators.
