Flaxborough is crying Blue Murder in the 10th mystery in the excellent British small town police procedural.
A writer for a London tabloid is sent to find a porno supposedly filmed with the town’s citizens. Mayor Hockley challenges the writer to a duel. Several mysterious deaths are investigated by the local police.
For such a short book, Blue Murder has a multitude of plots. However, the conclusion nicely merges them together well. This British mystery is extremely well written. The ending is surprising but fair. 4 stars!
Thanks to Farrago Books, and NetGalley for an advanced copy.
