A Ghost in the Machine - Chief Inspector Barnaby, Bk 7

When a bloody, pulverized body is found lying beneath the rustic timbers of an authentic torture device so vicious and complicated as to be blood-curdling, there's sufficient unrest in tiny Forbes Abbot to call in Chief Inspector Barnaby. Was Dennis Brinkley done in by crooked business partners, a teenage seductress, a couple of would-be pub...  more »

This is a really good read. Nicely developed characters and side-stories. Much, much better than "Murder at Madingley Grange" which was rather disappointing.

Well-liked Dennis Brinkley is killed by a malfunctioning replica of a trebuchet, a medieval catapult war machine. His death is declared an accident. His good friend Benny is convinced he was murdered, and pesters Inspector Barnaby to investigate. After all, Dennis was not only an expert on these machines, but also extremely particular about them. Barnaby dismisses her concerns at first, but changes his mind after a medium is murdered just before she was to reveal the name of Dennis' murderer. Suspects begin to emerge slowly during the course of the book.

Great read!

Caroline Graham is like Agatha Christie incarnate but in her own wonderful way! Just like Christie, she takes you into the minds of the various characters in her stories and you keep thinking about what is happening in the book after you've had to put it down for a spell. No sneaky surprises with things not revealed in the book, just a savvy understanding of human nature and the dark side it can often gravitate toward.

After watching the British series, I was curious to see if the books were as good. I was pleasantly surprised. This book was a complex murder mystery with entertainingly funny parts and a great surprise ending.

This is a Chief Inspector Barnaby mystery. It takes place in a peaceful English village haunted by secrets and murder.

I enjoyed the book very much.
