I’m done with this series. I really can’t stand the 300 pages of backstory, followed by 100 pages of mystery solving, followed by another 100 pages of wrapping up the back story. I really don’t care who slept with who or who cheated who out of thousands of pounds; I just want to read about Inspector Barnaby solving a murder. I’m not sure how you can call a series The Inspector Barnaby Series and then only have him present for 1/5th of the book. I also found that like the previous book I read in this series, it had some major editing issues. There were whole paragraphs of what looked like a bunch of random words strung together. Did nobody bother to even look at the manuscript before sending it to print?
