    We meet DCI Andrew Fenwick again who has featured in all of her books This story is a complex case which involves the huge family run Wainwright business Alan Wainwright, the owner of this empire is found dead and his death is ruled suicide His only son is expecting to inherit his fortune but he, along with the rest of the Wainwright family are shocked, when half of his assets along with the company are left to Alan s nephew Alex Alex is married to the elusive Sally who is certainly not popular [...]

    The back cover describes this asan edge of your seat thrillermmwell IMHO it was far too slow a tale to be described thus Don t get me wrong, its a good tale with plenty of twists turns the characters were right enough but with the bulk of the story featuring the Wainwright family, the police investigation side seemed sadly lacking I don t have a problem with this in a crime novel, after all there s no set formula which says what percentage has to be about police proceedure but in this case the e [...]

    The book itself was great but the audio version was ruined by the slowness of the narrator At times I thought the recording had stalled Dreadful

    Corley, Elizabeth Fatal Legacy OkayThe death of a wealthy English business owner a murder staged to resemble a suicide results in scathing remarks and vows of lawsuits at the reading of his vindictive will, when family members are surprised to learn that control of his business was sold long ago Only when Detective Chief Inspector Andrew Fenwick investigates the murder of the company s financial controller does the earlier death come into question Then an abundance of suspects appear, and layers [...]

    I really loved this book It was a slow start, but the characters became very absorbing It is a police procedural that puts me in mind of P.D James It became apparent about half way through who was responsible, but the tension didn t lessen a bit for me Will find the other books in the series to read.

    Half way through this book I very nearly gave up It is a very slow to get started police procedural I did really enjoy the second half though so perhaps it was worth persevering Will I read the next one The jury s out.

    Slow start, and again it seemed to go on forever I listened to this when I was in bed ill and kept falling asleep Maybe that s why it lasted forever as I kept having to go back over it Not as good as the first book.I love Bess the most.

    Interesting story The author hints that Alexander is unaware of Sally s character Gradually, the reader sees of his manipulation More and of Sally s background bubbles up in her behavior Anxious to see how she developes the nightingale fenwick relationship.j

    The second book in the series featuring DCI Andrew Fenwick The plot of this tale had many twists and turns keeping the reader interested and on edge until the last page All in all, an exciting and enjoyable read.

    Didn t find this as good as the first in the series Bit slow at the beginning but livened up half way through which saved it.

    Hurrah A new to me series with an engaging protagonist, a detective inspector who is also a widower with two children he loves deeply And a WPC on the fringes who finds him attractive.

    Sequel to REQUIEM MASS British procedural featuring DCI Fenwick Expert plotting with interesting characters.

    Second in the Andrew Fenwick police procedural series a gripping, complex crime thriller distinguished by splendid characterization, breathtaking pacing and cleverly convoluted plotting.
