As many, I am a big fan of "Midsomer Murders," so I wanted to read the books. I came in with very low expectations. And was wonderfully delighted. The settings are described in detail without going overboard, so I can picture each location. The characters are given unique personalities. I particularly enjoyed how Graham would change the language based on the character we were viewing the scene from.

Fan of "Midsomer Murders," on PBS, so I was excited to read the book of which it was based on.

Set in a idyllic English village of Badger's Drift. DCI Tom Barnaby is the main character, a detective, forced to look into a death of natural causes of an elderly women what unfolds is murder, adultery, jealousy, blackmail and---well, I don't want to gossip. :)

This did not disappoint! Fast moving and entertaining, you will fall in love with the characters.

Hailed as one of the top 100 crime novels written; nominated for numerous awards.

Entertaining and descriptive writing style. I've loved the Midsomer Murder series based on Graham's Barnaby books for years, and the books are even better. Only disappointment is Troy - I'm glad they made him more likeable for the tv show.

A quick, easy, enjoyable read. Although I have to admit I like the personalities of Barnaby and Troy much better in Midsomer Murders than in the book.
