I laughed so much throughout with Frank’s one liners, he is 100% a character that I will forever love! The small village of Lady's Well has a spring which feeds the villagers their water, and it's found to have been corrupted with a red dye.

DCI Ryan and his team caught a mysterious case of Well turning red, and the entire village of Holystone suffered from poisoning, which caused an older man to die. To put it mildly, after reading what seemed to be several pages of self-justification and self-congratulation, I was pretty sure that the author must self-publish. As always Ryan is quick to spot the clues and ably assisted by Frank and McKenzie the culprits are brought to justice.The plot, the treatment of the characters, the style, the language have little in common with all the other books of the series. Accusations abound in the small, close-knit community, and 'old' religions spar against 'new' while fear runs like wildfire through the streets. When the ancient waters of Lady’s Well in the rural village of Holystone begin to run red, it seems to be a nasty Hallowe’en prank and nothing more. After the discovery of the dead man, Ryan and Frank arrive, find the local police in disarray, and they feel the wrath of Ryan's tongue. She studied undergraduate and postgraduate Law at King’s College, University of London and then abroad in Paris and Florence.

When I settle down with these stories I feel like I’m just catching up with some old friends, they’re absolutely wonderful characters and having learnt so much about them along the journey of these mysteries, I feel like I actually know them.

It's a fair enough thing, and I get why someone might be insecure about it if people are being snobby, but this seemed overkill, and the entire scene seemed to be there to justify self-publishing, and then absolutely nothing happened about that whole storyline. Along with other readers, I have fallen head over heels for these two characters as there is a definite bromance between the two. Come gli altri, lo sto leggendo in lingua originale e, rispetto ai precedenti 19 della serie, trovo eccessivo l'uso di espressioni linguistiche locali, unite alla novità della scelta, a volte pretenziIosa, del lessico. I would have liked to hear more about the Well, the village of Holystone, The ancient Pagan and Christian past, and the surrounding landscape.
