There’s murder involved but Death in Dulwich is a great read for a rainy day in front of the fire. Beth, the main character, is a gentle, intelligent and lovely single-mother to a typical nine-year old boy (who tells her that his school projects are due that day at six in the morning), and she’s determined to find the killer of the Archivist at the school she’s just started working for. Red herrings are dotted tantaslisingly about, leading the reader to one possible conclusion after another. Beth makes an excellent sleuth – she’s determined too. Rather more so than Harry York, the detective who (to my mind) is sexy as hell. As this is subtitled “The London Murder Mysteries 1” – I have every hope that York emerges again in the next book, and Beth too. Together I hope…let’s see. Alice Castle has a tendency to tease. Loved the story (and Beth’s fringe).
