Date with Justice: 9 (The Dales Detective Series, 9)
About this deal
Then the truth about Samson’s policing past gets exposed brutally and Bruncliffe turns its back on him, which places Delilah in a rather impossible spot.
There are lots of little things left unsolved from the previous volumes that are answered, and the people of Bruncliffe are not at the end of their surprises. and murder, has become a go to for me for reading slump rescue recommendations, reading clubs, and just getting out of the doldrums in general, and this was to be a culmination of so many different story threads, and Julia Chapman did it! Je rêvais d’un happy-end, style « conte de fées » avec un chouette prologue type 6 mois après les faits. Having published a series of novels set in the idyllic French Pyrenees, she has now turned her hand to crime. One of the attendees at the fatal party at Blackheath, he wakes up in the body of a different guest each morning and has to start his sleuthing all over again.Little do the detective duo know that several of their cases are about to collide when identifying the whereabouts of the missing man becomes something far more sinister. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. I wouldn't recommend anyone to read this book without reading the others first, relationships and storylines all converge in 'Date with Evil', but if that's too much of a reading commitment, I would at least start with the first book to get to know the characters, then read one or two before this one, if by that point you feel you can bear the spoilers. It’s book eight of the series so Julia dispenses with most of the backstories that some authors would use to pad out their stories. I thoroughly enjoyed Date with Evil, which is an amusing cosy with a sharp edge that doesn’t shy away from the worst in human nature.
Last year the series was also made into a ratings winner, primetime TV show in France, where the books regularly hit the bestseller charts. We left the town at the end of the last instalment with Samson’s name cleared and (nearly) everyone safe after the entire town was involved in a showdown with corrupt coppers, eastern European mafia and money launderers. She is also the author of the Dales Detective series which follows the adventures of Samson O’Brien and Delilah Metcalfe as they solve cases in the Yorkshire Dales.Delilah ends up putting a lot into helping Samson and they both solve the mysteries the town brings them. And with Bruncliffe turning on Samson, his business partner Delilah Metcalfe finds herself in the impossible position of defending him to her friends and family. The series might take you on a rollercoaster of emotions or provide a steady companion on lazy Sunday afternoons. Personally, I thought the pacing could have been a bit quicker - I found myself getting frustrated by knowing more than our heroes at some parts. Combine that with a strong sense of character and place, add a good dose of laughter, and you have the perfect recipe.
Its distinctive landscape and way of life provide the setting for her latest set of novels, the Dales Detective series.Following the huge success of The Madame Blanc Mysteries, we feel incredibly well placed to hit all the right notes with this much-loved book series, and create a long running show loved by fans new and old. Samson is in London helping the Met, so Delilah is left to run the agency with newly minted detective Ida Capstick. Originally published in 1961 and set in Skipton, the self-proclaimed gateway to the Dales where my own Dales Detective series is set, North’s second Sergeant Cluff novel is darker than your traditional fare. C’est un peu dommage mais j’espère qu’une suite amène un peu de fraîcheur et permette de retrouver le charme des premières intrigues.
Heureusement qu'il y a une suite sinon j'aurais eu un goût de trop peu tellement j'aime cette saga, et la fin m'aurait paru expéditive en ce qui concerne les relations entre les personnages. Mais comment imaginer un seul instant que ce roman est annoncé comme le dernier de la série des détectives du Yorkshire ?It's cleverly written, with various POVs and the different strands of the story being slowly but steadily woven together. They will have to put the past behind them if there is to be any business coming their way, and now with suspicious deaths, they embark on different mysteries in every book. While I was trying to plot murder in the city, I was constantly noticing the shade of the heather on the hills as September bleeds into October. To answer a question as vital as the number of coffee cups consumed while reading, there are exactly 7 books in the The Dales Detective series. In the center of Yorkshire, the Dales Detective Agency is close to facing its largest challenge yet.
