Call the Dead Again, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


When Meredith Mitchell picks up a hitchhiker on a lonely road outside Bamford one evening she is left feeling distinctly uneasy. What business can this confident, yet secretive, young woman have at Tudor Lodge, the beautiful old home of Brussels-based lawyer Andrew Penhallow, where she asks to be dropped? Penhallow is constantly toing and froing from the Continent, but that night, unusually, he is at home, and - with his son away and his wife Carla in bed with a migraine - alone. Which is unfortunate, for the next morning he is found murdered in the garden. To the vicarious delight of the locals, who are quick to recall old disputes, Penhallow's death results in some spectacular revelations about his double life - developments which make the murder investigation all the more delicate for Superintendent Markby, who knew the dead man as a young body. Andrew Penhallow certainly had ghosts in his past - has one come back to claim him?

Review by

I have been reading the Mitchell and Markby series for some time, but I took a hiatus from the series for awhile as I was reading other things. This book is just as good as the others in the series. I love this series and the duo of Meredith and Alan is wonderful. These are English village mysteries, but the characters are always wonderful, and the mystery is usually complex. It was great to get back to this wonderful series and to lose myself in the village of Bamford again. These books do not disappoint at all.
