Cyril is quite old school and Owen compliments him wonderfully. They are a bit like chalk and cheese yet they work so well together. Owen certainly brings a bit of light to this otherwise dark story and it is a great partnership to read of.
You can’t get more of a current story line than with this particular one as escape rooms are something that have become quite the in thing to be doing at the moment. Have always wanted to try one though maybe not in a hurry to do so now having read Treble Clef!
Treble Clef was a gripping, page turner of a read that kept me on the edge of my seat. It is one dark and twisted story line that I devoured within no time. If you love Morse and Lewis, you will love Bennett and Owen. A very clever plot with a killer who certainly gives the police a run for their money.
My thanks to Caroline at Bits About Books for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
I am a massive fan of this author’s books and I love the DCI Bennett series and the fab partnership of Cyril and Owen so I was delighted to see that Treble Clef had been released, this is now the eighth book in this brilliant series!
I loved being able to catch up with the main characters again, they are very well developed, believable and well grounded characters and it is a pleasure reading about their cases and interactions. I this one Cyril takes a bit of a back seat at times and I liked that allowed the others to shine, for part of the book at least!
Whilst I thought that compared to some of the other books in the series the pace was a little slower in this book it is still well developed and had me guessing as to who was responsible for most of it, which is something I thoroughly enjoyed as I have read a book books lately where the culprit has been easily guess not even a third of the way through!
The book for me does read fine as a stand alone, there are underlying themes regarding the characters personal relationships that carry through the series but the author does a great job at making sure you know what has gone on before in this one.
I have thoroughly all the books to date so I would definitely recommend reading them all if you are looking for a very well written crime series and in order so you don’t get any spoilers if you are planning to follow the full series.
It is four stars from me for this one, it is another great addition to the DCI Bennett series – highly recommended!

In my opinion, I think Treble Clef is the best yet, and that is saying something given the outstanding writing of the end of Game Point. It exposes us to the world of escape rooms and the quest for greater thrills. The writing is almost poetic throughout, allowing you to vividly picture a scene, even though I'm not that familiar with Harrogate. Malcolm's turn of phrase makes you feel the emotions, and there are so many twists and turns in this one that it is so hard to put down. The most disturbing part of this book is that one of the characters has the same name as my optician; I sincerely hope he is alive and well when I next visit!
Although this is book eight in the series, it could be read as a standalone, as Malcolm does a great job of briefly filling in the backstory - great for us regulars too, as it's often hard to remember where the last one left off.
A great holiday read if you are looking for one, and pesonally I can't wait for book nine!
