あらすじ・解説

In a Yorkshire Dales village everyone has a motive for murder - except the killer.

A retired judge is shot dead outside the Dog and Gun inn in the remote Yorkshire village of Niddersgill. There's a witness who saw everything, and the gunman's on the run; the case should be open-and-shut for DCI Jim Oldroyd. But the murderer had no motive for wanting Sandy Fraser dead and, what's more, no trace of him can be found.

As Oldroyd and his team cast the net wider, they discover that Fraser wasn't without enemies in Niddersgill. As the wealthy owner of a grouse moor, he'd clashed with farmers, debtors, hunt saboteurs and blackmailers. But none of them were at the scene of the murder. And when a local shopkeeper is gunned down in a second senseless attack, it's clear that these killings are anything but random.

Surrounded by the dramatic beauty of the Yorkshire Dales, Oldroyd faces a race against time to connect the crimes and find who's behind them. But with all the evidence sending him down dead ends, can he get one step ahead before someone else is killed?

Love the series but not my favorite

This is a good book but I just couldn’t love it. I have enjoyed this series and there’s really not much wrong with this except for the many characters that I had a hard time keeping track of. I listened to the audiobook and I think it’s easier to follow characters when you can turn the page back to check. That being said, it took me a long time to finish this book. The case for the detectives is a puzzler and Oldroyd and his team are baffled when two people are murdered in front of witnesses who identify the two different shooters and then those shooters disappear.

The narration was great.

I’m sure many will like this book more than I did. It was good but not my favorite.

Intriguing from beginning to end

It was Ellis' best book. It had me intrigued from beginning to end. The plot was entertaining and the characters came alive. You could almost see the beauty of the scenery.

Grouse Hunting and Murder

The murder of a retired judge that has plenty of enemies brings DCI Oldroyd to the Yorkshire village of Niddersgill. The descriptions of the moors and countryside are wonderful and a big part of why I like this series so much. When a second murder takes place, Oldroyd has his work cut out for him. There seems to be a witness to the first murder, but its not as simple as identifying the killer. I love listening to Oldroyd put the pieces of the puzzle together. So glad that book five will be coming out soon!

Delightful World with a Meandering Murder

The adventure and life of DCI Oldroyd and his team continues up in Yorkshire. This time, they are up against murderers who disappear from the hamlet of Niddersgil. J.R. Ellis again crafts a wonderfully detailed world with engaging characters with full but believable lives. But, this time, his plot is not a tight puzzle box but a meandering stroll. It's still very enjoyable, but Ellis' focus is more on character development this time around. There, he excels - Oldroyd, Steph, and Andy are growing into themselves as they solve the murders and find lives outside work, and it is great to hear.

Michael Page continues an excellent read, with great regional accents and an engaging style. His character voices are both consistent over the series and becoming easier to distinguish between.

Overall, great installment in the series. I will look forward to the next book.

British mystery at its best!

I have listened to all the Yorkshire Murder Mysteries (thanks to KU) and I love the narration. The voice is perfect and it sets the scene of rural England so nicely. The mysteries always have a great set of quirky, grumpy and unique Yorkshire rural folks. The stories are also set in the wildlands of Yorkshire with lots of local history, geography and colors. The police here are also well filled out as characters with their life-challenges and they seem quite real. Of course the Detective Inspector has a knack for solving seemingly impossible cases and puzzles. Like most British mysteries, these stories are long on character development, interviews and thought. They do overlook some obvious forensics which would speed up the investigation (like fingerprints!), but that is all part of the fun in solving the case and untangling the puzzles.

Excellent series, number 5 is great

Entertaining mystery that can be listened to in the car with the whole family present. Romance is hinted at without being explicit. Language is clean, which is a refreshing change of pace. Too bad so many authors feel the need to swear to get their points across.

Really good fun

I do like this series especially Oldroyd the top policeman. He’s a unique character who discovers the bodies so cleverly. The actual mystery is always with Shakespeare. Good story.

enjoyed the storh

good plot! easy and enjoyable read. particularly relevant to the environment! the poem really expressed the age and mystery of the dales and was reminiscent of centuries past. i also enjoy the depth of his characters and that balance of psychology theology and the essential nature of the world..
