Terry has been studying Satisfaction & Pestilence by Carol Hedges.

5 stars.

Eleventh e-book within the sequence, and I’ve not given any of them lower than 5 stars. Satisfaction and Pestilence sits up there with the remaining, a vastly fulfilling story of social climbing scoundrels, unscrupulous journalists, class wars and weary detectives aiming to type the pressing from the time-wasting, the villains from the victims.

Detective Leo Stride has now retired, however finds himself all at sea; researching previous police information for the aim of writing his memoirs is a welcome escape from bumbling round helplessly within the social and home world inhabited by his spouse, and in addition gives an irresistible alternative to sidle into in a few of Cully and Greig’s new instances. Is he nonetheless wanted? In fact he’s!

The invention of a plague pit inside a constructing website sparks off rumours of a resurgence of the pestilence of 200 years earlier, and the way in which through which the tabloid press use this to instil concern into the general public (and promote extra papers) is most entertaining, and certainly echoes occasions of a more moderen time.

It’s nice. Beloved it. Learn the entire sequence, beginning now!
