Who Killed Vivien Morse? is a mystery set in the countryside of Britain. Filled with quirky characters, the mystery weaves its way through the clues, enticing the reader along, until the final, unexpected outcome. It is the fourth in a series of mysteries involving the character DCI (Detective Chief Inspector) Hatherall along with an interesting plethora of supporting characters; a chain smoking neurotic housewife, her bat crazy daughter, and rightfully angry husband along with a pleasantly plump dowager and her paramour, a hippie Druid priest. And let’s not forget Fiona, Hatherall’s right hand—uh—woman, who has more than one secret of her own. (Honest, I’m not making this up.)
Through the twists and turns of this delightful story, you will be hornswoggled more than once by false trails and misleading clues until finally the case is solved—except not completely. In the end, Hatherall, in a moment of inspiration brought on by a stranger in a pub, puts the final pieces together and closes the case.
Sherlock Holmes this is not. A fascinating, compelling story that draws you in and hooks you subtly, Vivien Morse will leave you wanting to know more about Hatherall, a thinking man’s detective who never gives up until every piece falls into place.
