From the author of In Farleigh Field.. . Evan Evans is a young police constable who has traded in the violence of city life for idyllic Llanfair, a Welsh village tucked far away from trouble. Nestled among the Snowdonia mountain range, Llanfair looks to Constable Evans like a town forgotten by time, but he quickly learns that even the bucolic countryside has its share of eccentric—and deadly—characters. Evans' new neighbors include two competitive ministers vying for the souls of their flock, one lascivious barmaid, and three other Evanses: Evan-the-Meat, Evans-the-Milk, and Evans-the-Post (whose favorite hobby is to read the mail before he delivers it). Before Evans has time to sort through the complicated relationships and rivalries of his new home, he's called to the scene of a crime as brutal and fearsome as any he encountered in the big city. Two hikers have been murdered on the trails of the local mountain, and Evans must hunt down a vicious killer—who may or may not be linked to the mysterious destruction of Mrs. Powell-Jones' prize-winning tomatoes. Evans Above is the first novel in Rhys Bowen's popular Constable Evans Mystery Series.

Opinion

From Library Staff

This first in a series captures the quintessential small village life of many Christie novels, as well as the scandals that range from vegetable vandalism to murder.

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.
