    " Peters is a great mystery writer. This one was thoughtfully written with a great analysis of the effects of war on violence. Good family interaction. Great characters. I don't know if I will read them all, but it would be interesting to see what she does with the character. "

    " This is an EXCELLENTLY written book. I can't STAND the nazi character who later is the murder victim. He's too real and I got pissed of while I was reading. Sometime's a person is too real when you read them. "

    " 1st of the Inspector Felse series. Peters' writing is superb and I've read as many of her Felse series as I've been able to find. I've even ordered some off the Internet because I couldn't find them locally; that's how much I wanted to read them! "

    " Wanted to be interested in this story of a POW in post-war England, but wasn't. Plot has never been Ellis's strongest suit, and without the historical background and atmosphere of the Brother Cadfael series, the book falls flat. Knew who the murderer was and why halfway through. "

    " It took awhile for this one to get going. Only near the end did it turn into a page turner for me. Not quite equal to her ' Brother Cadfeal' series for me. Loved that series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna Jo Atwood | 3/4/2011

    " This one is NOT a Brother Cadfell mystery, but rather a police procedural taking place in coal-mining country shortly after the end of World War II. The whole feel is different than the Cadfell books, which is as it should be. I'm still not sure how well I liked it. "

    " Inspector Felse mystery regarding a former German soldier held in the UK who works in an open pit coal mine in 1951. "
