THE FIRST CONSTABLE EVANS MYSTERY!

Constable Evan Evans expected the idyllic Welsh village of Llanfair to be a calm oasis far away from the violent crime of the big city—until a string of murders puts every charming eccentric under suspicion...

Little Llanfair has its share of characters—two ministers vying for the souls of their flock, one lascivious barmaid, and three other Evanses: Evans-the-Meat, Evans-the-Milk, and Evans-the-Post.

But before Evan—now knows as Evans-the-Law—can enjoy Llanfair's tranquillity, he's called to the scene of a crime as brutal as any in the big city. Two hikers have been murdered on the trails of the local mountain, and now Evan must hunt down a vicious killer in a town where one of his lovable new neighbors could prove to be deadly...

Baker & Taylor
A refugee from city life, Constable Evan Evans hardly gets a chance to settle down in Llanfair, a secluded Welsh village with plenty of local color, before he must investigate the murder of two hikers on a mountain. Reprint.

This series begins just three years after The Hamish Macbeth series, and it follows generally the same lines--one superior who grudgingly helps Evan, one who is a compete idiot, small-town folk, but Evan has toe opposite woman troubles to Hamish. It's a good story, really, it's good. However it is not a perfect gem like 33 out of 34 (so far) of the Macbeth series. I look forward to the rest of this short series.

First of a series. Set in a Welsh village at the foot of a mountain this is a cozy murder mystery featuring Evan Evans, a young constable. A good plot with well rounded characters, this is a quick read.
