The Case of the Missing Letter is a good read and seems like a much longer book than it's 190 pages because of the complexity and pacing. It includes two story lines and several ongoing plot lines including perhaps a bit of romance for the inspector. The book contains just enough suspense to be engaging without slipping into thriller or suspense genre territory.
The Case of the Missing Letter develops several "outside" characters in parallel action and has perhaps a bit more violence, although no extended graphically violent scenes, than I recall from previous Inspector Graham books.
"Realistic" is a good word for the action, chacterization, motivation and forensic education nuggets, which I enjoyed--even learned a new thing or two from these.
I found very few typos or distracting nuts-and-bolts errors.
Mystery, murder, mayhem, humor, action-packed – what more could I ask for? This story delivers each component in spades – even more so than the previous stories in the series. There is enough doubt regarding each of the players that you aren’t sure who is innocent and who is guilty. And with multiple mysteries (not just the opening death), there is plenty to attempt to untangle.
I’ve been enjoying the Epilogue chapter with the last couple of books – where the author wraps up after-story events for each of the “cast” and events. Many of them get a big grin from me, but this story’s Epilogue treats had me snickering and laughing out loud at many of them. And thank goodness I didn’t have any food or drink in my mouth when I got to the last morsel – either it would have sprayed over the whole room, or it would have “gone down the wrong pipe” and I’d no longer be alive to enjoy more of this author’s stories.
Reading the previous books in this series is not necessary to enjoy this one, but they will provide additional depth to various comments and situations.
Ezekiel Satterthwaite was a master craftsman of fine furniture. It was general knowledge that he would build a secret compartment in some of his creations. No one knew which pieces had a secret compartment and no one knew how to access these compartments. Could the desk donated to the Jersey Heritage Museum be the one that held the important missing letter?
The reader can expect a story with several interesting mysteries to solve. The plot moves quickly and there are some unexpected twists that I didn't see coming. This book is well worth your time and for a brief period the cost is only 99¢ on Amazon.com. Each book in this series can be read as a stand alone but it's much more fun to read them from the beginning.
Several sub-plots carefully blend together to create an interesting and engaging tale. I had to keep on reading until I got to the end as I just couldn't put it down. The investigations of tea connoisseur Inspector Graham, along with his colleagues Harding, Roach and Barnwell, would make a really good television series set against the backdrop of the beautiful Jersey scenery. I also very much like Billy, the engaging, intelligent yet vulnerable young son of a local drug addict mother.
The blurb for 'The Case of the Missing Letter' says 'revenge, scandal, murder' and that's exactly what you get! If, like me, you enjoy clever plots and detection work with minimum blood and gore then these books are definitely for you.

From all the details in the epilogue you can tell it was a complex story as all the characters were well and truly established from the previous books.
I am glad we have both inspector Graham and Alison Golden back with us and working well together.
The series is highly recommended and look forward to more adventures on Jersey.
Fast moving and keeping us on our toes.
