Too Clever by Half
In May NetGalley offered Will North's Harm None, a new series featuring CID Detective Sergeant Morgan Davies and Scene of Crime officer Calum West.
I liked the setting in Cornwall and the characters, so I was pleased when I found Too Clever by Half on NetGalley in June. Cornwall is a beautiful peninsula surrounded by the Celtic Sea to the north and west and by the English Channel to the south. It has a vibrant history and has inspired many artists, writers, and poets. Daphne Du Maurier set many of her novels, including Rebecca, in Cornwall.
The body of an unidentified man was discovered far out from the coast, and Davies and West need to discover the man's identity and who murdered him. So the romantic setting of Cornwall, a murder, modern "Druids," the discovery of priceless ancient artifacts, witchcraft, jealousy, and betrayals all come together in the second in the Davies & West series.
My only disappointment is that Tamsin and Tegan only made a brief appearance.
Read in June.
