But For The Grace by Peter Grainger

I really enjoyed the first book in this series about DC Smith, a brilliant veteran cop near retirement age.

But For The Grace is #2 — and I didn’t enjoy it nearly as much.

The writing is skillful, with some dry British humour.

But DC Smith himself was not nearly as likeable.

DC Smith is assigned to the suspicious death a woman who lived in a retirement home. DC is masterful in his interview techniques.

One theme is assisted suicide which is still illegal in the time of the book.

It’s a good book but not a great book. The ending, in particular, I found disappointing.
