Another solid very readable atmospheric crime thriller from Elly Griffiths
This is the third outing of the “Magic Men” and I’m really enjoying the characters.
It is May 1953 and England is on the cusp of crowning a new Queen. The murder of a gypsy fortune and the stabbing of their old boss from the Magic Men days are linked as DI Edgar Stephens investigates.
Loads of strong characters here and excellent period details that provide and enjoyable and compelling British whodunit.
Elly Griffiths continues to capture the seedy, down at heel feel of the English South Coast expertly creating another highly readable atmospheric crime thriller, with a great sense of time and place. I can’t wait for the fourth instalment of the “Magic Men”.
My thanks go to NetGalley and the Publisher for the chance to read an advance copy of this book.
