    Hollis questions Thea as the confusion goes on growing between them. Reception[ edit ] Robert Engen, in a paper for the Canadian Military Journal critiquing On Killing, both praised and criticized Grossman's works, saying: "On Killing and A Cotswold Killing book Combat form an excellent starting point, there are too many problems with their interpretation for them to be considered the final word on the subject. After Rebecca identified herself as the author we had a lovely chat about her books, the oxfam manager talked about the possibility of future author events and I left her to carry on her shopping. An excellent series to get you through the cold months. Our main character Thea who is recently widowed, is in her 40s, very intelligent, stands up for herself when its time mentallynot quick to judge, has a very level head on her shoulders, loves dogs has a Cocker Spaniel and was instantly loved by me. A good murder mystery to loose yourself in on a sunday afternoon.

    The main character, Thea, was not very sympathetic. Thea believes that her initial weeks as a house sitter is going to be quite dull. Repetitive allusions to Thea's schedule and taking out the dogs and having tea and playing Scrabble were too irritating. This was at best a novelette. It was a very well written novel that kept the readers interested till the very end.

    There is a murder and subsequent police investigation, however it is not a gruesome read, I found myself relating it to Midsommer Murders or Rosemary and Thyme rather than Silent Witness or Reubus. For the substance in there, the book did not deserve its length. I'm not sure what the point of that scene was. The southern part of the Cotswold is known for its woolen mills which were active in the nineteenth century, and are now full of a number of secrets of the local people.

He has written some of the best sci-fi books there is such as Dark Matter and Recursion. Her motivation was to seek justice for a man whose life was extinguished and could never be brought back - a parallel with her husband. All these jobs taught her a lot about human and social values which she widely used in her writings.

I find myself hoping that some of the characters in this book - Harry Richmond, an older man with a connection to the murdered brothers, for example - will turn up in other books in the series, but even if they don't Thea and her cocker spaniel Hepzibah provide good reading, especially as the autumn approaches.
