A Place of Safety : A Midsomer Murders Mystery 6 Paperback

4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Ex-vicar Lionel Lawrence believes that everyone deserves a second chance, which is why he decides to open the old rectory to a stream of young offenders.

All Lionel wants is to help these poor lost souls to find the right path - he has no idea that the consequences of his good deed will include blackmail, murder and a missing teenager.

But Chief Inspector Barnaby is sure he knows who's behind the worrying disappearance of Lionel's latest young charge - a defiantly elusive suspect he's convinced is the incarnation of evil.

Review by

Be prepared for murderers, juvenile delinquents, thieves, psychopaths, blackmailers, pedophiles, and poor Inspector Barnaby trying to make heads and tails of the mess that is the charming little village of Ferne Basset. The previous installment in the series wasn't very good, but Graham is back on track with this one - Barnaby is gruff in public and sweet at home and Troy is back to being inappropriate and laddish and unintentionally funny. The mystery-part is quite gruesome, but it only stands out because the Midsomer environs are peaceful and quaint and the juxtaposition makes it all the more intriguing. Great page-turner this one - hope the next one (last in the series) doesn't disappoint either.
