This is the third book in this series. Unlike the previous two, it was rather easy to identify the murderer early on.
Plus, if you pay attention to what you are reading, the author let you understand that one character really was quite different then what you were being led to believe.
One little error that the author made I found quite astonishing. An American airman was found murdered late at night after most people had been asleep for awhile. Yet, the very next evening Lady Elizabeth remarks to Major Monroe how the airman's parents will be saddened to hear that he was murdered. The major responds, "Yes, I heard they took it pretty bad."
Even if I read it wrong and, the above took place two days later, this is still a blunder. This is 1942, there is no Internet or any instant communication between England and the United States. During this war, families usually heard of the overseas deaths of their loved ones many days, if not weeks, after the service men and women were killed, not the next afternoon.
Another charming look into the village of Sitting Marsh...Lady Elizabeth has another murder in her village...an American airman is found stabbed and hanging from the bell rope in the church tower....the accused is the beau of her employee Polly....As Lady of the Manor and Polly's employer and friend, she naturally must do her best to ferret out the truth so justice is served.....A very entertaining series.....
