I’ve enjoyed (on the whole) Elly Griffiths’ other series about Ruth Galloway but haven’t looked at this one before. Well, I didn’t look at it now. I listened to the audiobook. Just the right level of intriguing and entertaining for my news-addled brain to cope with at the moment. The last audiobook I enjoyed was a World War II story, this one is post-war Brighton, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I’m finding that kind of historical setting relaxing at the moment. Everything will be alright in the end, somehow or other. I worked out one of the elements of the story before the characters did, which made me feel clever for seeing the clues, but not the main mystery plot bit which still surprised me nicely. I liked the characters and will be back for more.
