Constable Evan Evans expected idyllic Llanfair to be a calm oasis far away from the violent crime of the big city. That was, until a string of murders erupts in the town, putting every "charming eccentric" under suspicion...
YA�Evans, a self-effacing young constable living in a Welsh village at the foot of a mountain, solves the murders of three alpine hikers while awkwardly fending off the advances of a buxom barmaid in the local pub. A well-crafted plot, nicely drawn characters, a strong sense of place, and the bantering give-and-take typical in a small village whose inhabitants have been neighbors for generations make this fast read a winner. YAs will like the unusual setting, the mountain hiking, and a hero who is young enough to be self-conscious with women.�Judy McAloon, Potomac Library, Prince William County, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
