The Manton Rempville Murders by Julian Worker

A 700 year old monastery. a couple of snooty aristocrats, a whole bunch of hangers on, shady characters galore, and we have Bingo our retriever whose job it is to find dead bodies. We have a detective as well. Seems a plodder but that is just a facade.

A lot of false clues and a lot of trivia seem to mask the murder. To get to the basics Knowles has to dig deep. Nothing is as it seems (as is very usual for mystery murders) but we get there eventually very nicely.

A simply mystery murder/s solved very well and descriptively told.

Sounds like a fun mystery.

I think the setting alone would be interesting! But I think it seems to have more going to it and an animal involved always adds interest.

I love it when a detective is deceptively obtuse, fools the bad guys! Great review, Mystica! :)
