Cover of the book, Devils Table

This one sees one half of a pair of twins going missing from a flower farm on one of the Scilly Isles, Jade’s brother Ethan was there when she was taken but he’s not able to speak about what happened. It’s a well plotted story that keeps you engaged - in fact I had this as an ebook from the library, which vanished when I returned it so I ended up buying myself an ebook copy to finish it rather than wait to get a copy by other means.

Like many other mystery series you do start to wonder how many murderers a small community can possibly house - each of the islands featured in this series only seems to have a very small population - but that’s the kind of thing you have to overlook if you like your mysteries set in idyllic rural locations! And I do. The landscape’s a character here but I also like the way the recurring characters are setup and how Ben’s not really your usual gruff detective.

I’m pleased to see there’s still another couple of episodes of this series at least for me to read.
