    I love a police procedural and Rachel Amphlett’s Mark Turpin series ticks all the boxes for me. It has great characters, likeable and those not so much, cases that keep you guessing right until the end and they are just so easy to get lost in. I am a massive fan of her Kay Hunter books, and Mark is growing on me more with each book. This time Mark and his partner Jan West have a tough case to crack. The victim is a young student, Jessica.

She has been murdered in her way home from a shift in one of her many jobs at the local pub. She is a hard worker and very well liked, so who would want her dead. The more the investigation goes in the more confused they become. They have their work cut out for them.

    If you like a kind of good old fashioned Detective thriller, one with a pretty rural setting, where secrets and lies dominate and the story will keep you one hundred percent engaged from start to finish, then you really do need to sit down and start the Mark Turpin series by Rachel Amphlett. Although it's still early days for her newest Detective, the more time I spend with him and his partner, Detective Constable Jan West, the more I like them.

Although it's still early days for her newest Detective, the more time I spend with him and his partner, Detective Constable Jan West, the more I like them. I mean, it's no secret that I'm a fan of the author's writing, and I've yet to start a book I haven't enjoyed, and this series is no exception. From the off we get the tension, the atmosphere, the mystery, and importantly, at least for this story, the murder. This time around we find our Detective duo in the village of Harton Wick investigating. the murder of a local student, Jessica Marley. Her body is found on a track used for the training of horses from the local stables and with no clear motive for her murder, or any indication of how she came to be on the gallops in the first place, Turpin and West have a difficult job ahead of them. One of the things that Rachel Amphlett really manages well is creating characters that you are able to become completely invested in. I really like Turpin and West as the lead characters in this. Turpin has a difficult past, a fractured family caused, largely, by his job and is starting over in Oxfordshire. west is very much a family woman, her husband and sons understanding of the demands of her job - perhaps more than she is herself. She is still one hundred percent dedicated, but that mothering side of her comes out on the odd occasion and it works well alongside Turpin's character. Beyond the police team we have a varied cast of characters, all multi-dimensional and believable, and all of whom fall under suspicion at some stage or another. You get. that sense of them keeping things bak, of not being completely honest or open with the police, and that building sense of intrigue and tension as a result. No matter what the location Rachel Amphlett also really manages to put you at the heart of the action. Be it a working stables or a country pub, I really could picture it very clearly in my mind, And in this case the setting really plays into the storyline, that sense of the closed community who are united in trying to discover who hurt one of their own, but not above keeping secrets from the outsiders. It just remains to be seen if those secrets are why Jessica had to die. The pacing of this was spot on for both the story and the setting, with both tension and excitement building as Turpin and West drew closer to the truth. This is another series I am really looking forward to reading more of and I'm glad that we have been drawn into this fictional world. It's not gratuitous in terms of violence or language - it doesn't need to be. I am fully engaged as a reader without needing the excessive shock factor. If you love the Kay Hunter series, you will love this one too. Definitely recommended.

    Not a bad read, but not nearly as good as Ms Amphlett's Kay Hunter series. I found the story line was good, but very slow paced - I kept thinking "time to move along". The main characters are likeable, and the bad guys/girls are nasty like they should be. Not sure if I will continue with this series. 3.5 stars From the blurb: When a championship jockey discovers the body of a young woman during a cold morning’s training ride, the local racing community is shocked to its core.
