Reviews

Opithris
I like Frances Fyfield's writing but was upset that it had to do with animals being hurt. It wasn't overly explicit but I try to avoid reading those kinds of topics. Also didn't see necessity of the "bestiality' part which I found offensive. So although I like the way she writes, I was disappointed at the topic.

Fyfield is among the best mystery writers -- period. Strong plots, great characters, beautifully written, there is not a single loser in the bunch. Long may she detect!

Frlas
Good book. Captivating charactors and good story line

Hidden Winter
Was a really good book. There was so much involved wow!! Intense suspense as to who did what and why.

Mustard Forgotten
Frances Fyfield is one of my favorite authors. Her mysteries and characters are unique and the writing is superb. In this story the surface shows a rich but nasty brute of a man whose wife disappears, possibly trying to escape him as he is pursuing a libel suit against a daily 'rag'.. But as the facts are expose over time, things are not what they seem and the truth comes out gradually, like a sweater being unraveled. Well done and engrossing.

I would not recommend this book to anyone who is offended by graphic sex and perverted sex with animals. Guess I'm rather old fashioned.

Although the story is clever, the style takes some getting used to with the actions of some of the characters overshadowing and foretelling the events and emotion they feel. Other less pivotal characters are in plain sight in word and deed. It was a page turner from the get go. I will look for more of her work!

I'm a long time Fyfield fan. The more recent books in the series have been somewhat inconsistent. Fyfield's writing is always good but her plotlines now and then were not what they could have been. This time out, we've got a really good book that is, unfortunately, bracketed by a Foreward and an Endpiece that consist of letters. The letters, while obviously the only way the author could impart the particulars she wanted to get across, are tiresome. Once into the meat of the book itself, there's a cast of well-drawn characters and a plot that, on the surface, seems a bit strange. The subplot, however, is clever and the characters are revealed slowly, steadily until they emerge ultimately not at all as they seem initially. This is, finally, a well-told story with an entirely satisfying resolution.
Recommended.
