Not that this was perfect - it was a little too dialogue driven at times and the writing could have been better, but that was easily overlooked because this was just such an enjoyable read. I was hard pressed to put this one down in the two days it took me to read through, not only because the mystery element was so well done, but the characters were fleshed out and seemed real. Definitely the mark of a good storyteller. Soon as I get the chance, it is off to the library to search for the first three books in this series.
However, he rises to the occasion when he realizes the killer his good friend Alistair failed to convict is at the party, by protecting his friend as best he can. In the meantime, an unexpected, and unwanted, guest shows up; a guest ends up murdered; a serial killer of young women is on the loose in the region; and a harsh storm forces guests to remain much longer than they, or Rex, wanted.
Despite these unexpected complications, Rex continues to forge ahead with his investigations. Murder on the Moor not only ends with the requisite library-gathered suspects for the big reveal, but also with a twist or two that will have fans longing for the next book.
This is the first Rex Graves book I've read, and I thoroughly enjoyed the old-style English mystery. The author ably used the location and climate as keys in creating an atmosphere of fear and suspicion among the guests. The conversations held amongst them added to the tension and the difficulty in figuring out who the real murderer was - at least for me.
I'm looking forward to reading more of C.S. Challinor's Rex Graves mysteries.
Murder on the Moor (A Rex Graves Mystery)
I can't compete with a perfect review that Chris has written.
What a treat this mystery was for me.
Nothing better than a "locked room" mystery like in the good old days.
How delightful, being a guest in an old Scottish Lodge.
Complete with a Loch,that might be hiding a monster in its deep waters.
Amateur sleuth,Rex Graves, is certainly a wonderful character.
He is backed up with such an eclectic group of house guests.
I would have loved to have been there watching from a dark corner.
Matching wits with an unknown murderer. How delightful!
I am looking forward to the next mystery
called, "Murder Unveiled".
This was a well written mystery to be sure.
I would recommend this English cozy to anyone who loves cozies.
