REVIEW ¾ The Sculthorpe Murder Detective Lavender Mysteries #3 ´ Northamptonshire 1810 As a new canal network snakes across the landscape a vicious mob stakes its claim to the county Every local constable is out on the hunt for the ruthless Panther Gang When an elderly man is robbed and murdered in sleepy Middleton theF revenge hangs heavy in the air Are the Panther Gang really responsible or is something sinister afoot As Lavender delves further into long hidden secrets Woods has demons of his own to contend with ghosts from his past that stalk him through the investigation. Another great historical mystery book The two main characters Detective Lavender and Constable Woods are both likable and interesting and the setting is well captured without reams of unnecessary description There's a mix of personal story about the main characters alongside whatever crime is the focus of each book in the series and the two are blended together well without any connections appearing too absurd I was glad to find there are plenty books to come in the series they're not going to change your world but they are easy reading with loads of interesting historical details and a solid detective story at the core each time

Disclaimer I received this book for free from netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis book took some time for me to get into but to be fair I haven't read the previous books in the series yetI really liked the plot once it got going and the various twists I did not see coming At times the characters did feel very wooden to me
