Elly Griffiths’ third Harbinder Kaur mystery.
I like Hardbinder. A 38-year-old detective inspector who’s still living with her Sikh parents — and still hasn’t told them she’s a lesbian.
BUT in this book, Hardbinder finally moves out because she has accepted a new position in the Big Smoke, London.
Her first case is a murder at a school reunion: Garfield Rice, an eminent MP.
Sadly, I came away disappointed. I want to know more about Hardbinder — but chapters are told from the point of view of different suspects. Some unreliable. I didn’t care about any of them.
Agatha Christie would have been disappointed in the resolution of the murder mysteries, as well. It really isn’t very brilliant.
Hopefully book #4 will be better.
