Title: Classic At Bay
Author: Amy Myers
Stars: 4 Stars out of 5
An engaging murder mystery set in modern day rural England with an unsolved murder from Soho, in the early 60's, being the key to solving the mystery. Jack Colby, car detective, is akin to a dog with a bone and refuses to give up until he had solved the three murders. A refreshing book that requires some mental agility in order to keep on top of the plot.
I gave this book a four star rating and would recommend it if you prefer a more difficult mystery to solve.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
