"Murder in the Mist" could be Amy Myers' best book so far in the series. In it, Peter and Georgia Marsh stumble onto a mystery by pure chance. The pair get lost driving through the Kentish countryside and sense "a fingerprint of time" at a stream adjacent to an abandoned cottage. The Marshes discover that the cottage had been used by a Bloomsbury-style collection of writers and artists known as the Fernbourne Five. One of them, poet Alwyn Field, hung himself at the spot in 1949. But the Marshes begin to suspect that murder, not suicide, led to Field's untimely end.

The novel recreates the bohemian lifestyle of artists before World War II, and the novel will keep you guessing to the end as to who killed Alwyn Field. Myers resists the temptation to turn Georgia and her father into paragons of virtue. Georgia is terribly human, making mistakes and saying things without thinking at times. Her father Peter can be brusque and unreasonable. While "Murder in the Mist" is still definitely a cozy, I admire that Myers adds that bit of realism to Peter and Georgia Marsh.

As always happens when the father-daughter duo investigate, secrets from the past lead to murders very much in the present. The book always plays fair with the clues; even so, the resolution will come as a great surprise.

Longtime fans of the series will be pleased with advances in the relationship between commitment-shy Georgia and her publisher and lover Luke Frost.

Kudos to Myers for providing another delicious British cozy. I devoured the book in two days' time. I'm going to immediately embark on the next one in the series, Murder Takes The Stage.
