Gregson's Chief Inspector Percy Peach books have the rare ability to depict gruesome murders while still giving the reader a good chuckle. His latest is no exception. Peach has been away from the CID for a year, during which solve rates have decreased and the department has faltered under the mismanagement of Peach's boss and nemesis, Superintendent Tommy "Bloody" Tucker. Peach is assigned to the high-profile case of prostitute Sarah Dunne, who's been brutally strangled. Tucker, one of those awful bosses who loves taking all the credit when his subordinates perform well, warns Peach that he'd better solve the case in double-quick time. Peach, whose great delight in life is to insult the pompous Tucker without Tucker quite catching on, continues his campaign to undercut his loathsome boss. But Peach is also a gifted detective who's dedicated to his job, and he's determined to find Sarah Dunne's killer, even with Tucker's bungling attempts to control the case. A compelling, funny, highly entertaining police procedural that makes a fine addition to any mystery collection. Emily Melton

This book continues in that vein. This is the case of the brutal strangling of a young prostitute. As usual, Percy tackles this case with his usual dedication and skill, while at the same time having lots of fun teasing his pompous and incompetent Superintendent, Tommy "Bloody" Tucker, who is never quite sure when he has been insulted.
This addition to the series about the irrepressible Percy Peach, with his sidekick, the lovely Detective Sergeant Lucy Blake, takes us on a rollicking and entertaining ride Lots of fun!
