The book is set in a gentler time and this Constable is definitely much more diplomatic, more gentler than most. The stories are told almost in a lyrical way, very soothing and though the underlying theory of justice and law enforcement are inherent what is more apparent is the milder and more caring way of handling people Apart from our constable, the characters themselves are quirky, and interesting as well.
It is a time long gone with methods which worked then, but may not work at all now!

Revd Cecil Willard was not the easiest of people to like, let alone love. Even his daughter who blindly and faithfully looked after him knew that he was not easy. But finding his murdered body takes the equation a step further. Who hated him so much that they wanted to kill him.
As DCI Gill Mayo begins the investigation he finds many many people who were interested in getting rid of the Reverend mainly because of information he possessed. Every interview produces more evidence, more suspects till it seemed that almost all surrounding the Reverend wanted to see him gone.
This book like the one reviewed above was set in a quieter time, and also in a village, and kept me interested throughout.
