Death in Cornwall
By G.M. Malliet
Rating: 4/5 Stairs
Death in Cornwall is the kind of mystery I love – set in the British countryside, DCI Arthur St. Just is looking forward to a well-earned holiday with his fiancée, Portia De’Ath. It starts out slow, giving the reader a chance to explore the village and meet the locals through St. Just and Portia’s eyes. Of course, a murder occurs and St. John finds himself helping with the investigation.
The mystery itself is intriguing, and kept me guessing. As St. John investigates, we find that there are a lot of viable suspects among the villagers. I also enjoyed the splashes of humor throughout the book. If you enjoy a classic British mystery, Death in Cornwall is definitely for you!
While this is the fourth book in the series, I had no trouble jumping in at this point and enjoying the mystery and the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters of DCI Arthur St. Just and Portia De’Ath, and look forward to catching up on their previous mysteries.
I listened to the audiobook on this one. I enjoyed the narrator, there were a lot of characters over the course of the book and she did a good job keeping everyone straight.
Many thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this audiobook.
