The delightfully unlikable civilian inspector Shona Bally drags her superior Police Inspector Tom Quiss into a increasingly bizarre investigation, in which the bodies of elderly couples are found poisoned inside houses not their own. The pace is perfect, and the characters well-matched, with a real and unromantic tension between them. At the climax, the killers’ motive is found to be so startling that I balked at it for a moment. The skill of the scene, though, carried me through to a suspension of disbelief. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole book, and would read another adventure with this pair.
