あらすじ・解説

Detective Constable Evan Evans and his new bride, Bronwen, are settling into married life in their little cottage above the village of Llanfair when they meet the daughter of one of the village's newest families, a 16-year-old Pakistani girl named Jamila. Bronwen and Jamila are becoming good friends when Jamila finds out from her parents that they have arranged a marriage for her back in Pakistan. Evans tries to convince her family not to enforce the custom, arguing that Jamila is a normal Welsh teenager, but just as the tensions increase, the girl suddenly vanishes. Bronwen is distraught, but there's no trace of her.

At work, Evans is investigating the murder of a man shot to death through the open window of his home while eating breakfast. After the man's wife is jailed as a suspect, a second man is killed - and then a third - and Evans and his team are on the hunt for a serial killer. But they can't seem to find any connections between the three men....

In the surprising climax of Edgar Award finalist Rhys Bowen's 10th Constable Evans mystery, Evans risks everything to solve the murders and discover what happened to Jamila. All in all, the novel is a triumph for fans of Bowen's acclaimed Evans series and a wonderful discovery for new listeners.

Wonderful as usual!!!

I just LOVE Constable Evans. Or should I say Detective Constable? I only wish there were a lot more of this series.

Weird Politics

The politics of this book troubled me. I usually find Rhys Bowen's books to be a pleasant diversion, but I really struggled with the tired, vaguely racist trope of the angry Muslim man. The portrayal wasn't nuanced at all.

The Last One?!! Oh no!!

Sure enough, I have reached the end of the last book in the series. Always a sad event, I'm thinking I might re-listen to them all over again!

Another great story about Evan but it ended with an air that said 'we'll be back', rather than a reassuring 'they all lived happily ever after'. So I'm living in hope....
